Flip Flops

My kitchen confidence is currently at an all time low. This last week it seems that everything I try to make ends with "Flip, another Flop"!

I have been so inspired by all the wonderful things I have been seeing on other blogs but it seems that everything I try comes out terrible. I have had dreams about posting pictures and recipes of the most delicious things, but I can't give you one recipe in fear of spreading this failure virus across the whole world wide web.

I will however, in the spirit of transparency, show you the pictures of the chocolate oat crunchies which taste great, but have been re-named "crumblies". You can only eat them outside on a ground sheet because they are so messy. And then I have a raisin bread that had to be registered with the Department of Defence as a deadly weapon. It was so dense and hard that if you threw it at someone they would end up in hospital, and no I didn't try throwing it at anyone.

I am not going to give up, and I trust that you will laud my bravery in showing you my failures and remember that "failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success".

Disclaimer : Do not try this at home, and if you do, only under strict adult supervision.

Our business in life is not to succeed, but to continue to fail in good spirits

I was wondering what had happened to you, but now I fully understand. We all have those days in the kitchen and thank the Good Lord for take-aways on nights like these.

I have been trying so hard to get something really original to come out of my kitchen, perhaps I should just relax and enjoy.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
