Disaster–Or Not #1LinerWeds

My grandfather, as faithful readers of this blog know, was both kind and a lover of good food. On a previous Wednesday, I posted one of his responses to a dish that didn’t come out the way the cook meant for it to: “That don’t hurt the eatin’ of it.” Today, I share another one:

    Most of my cooking is messy but nourishing.
    NOT that this hurts the eating of it much!

    Seriously, some of the best meals look like mess. Curry, biscuits and gravy, and Pad Thai come to mind…

      The first time Mom and I saw risotto, we said it looked like the dog’s breakfast. So, of course, that’s what we always called risotto. Oh, but it’s good!
