Now What?

Hosted by "Designs by Gollum"

Well, today, Friday, our gracious host, Gollum asked all of her participants to post about our Foodie Friday disasters. I think this is one theme I can rise to the occasion each time. LOL

For a recipe that called for cornmeal muffins, I used grits instead. Well, now they are petrified grits muffins! They are hard!!!



Here are the cakey sugar cookies... It was a pain getting them off the pan!


The extra that no one else wanted and practically got hollowed out from getting off the pan! LOL

Michael, thank you for hosting and to those who visited, you all so rock!!! What was your foodie disaster this week?

TABLESCAPING IDEA: ("Brain is saying yellow not grits, yellow...) Don't let mistakes bother you just find an alternative. Then set the table using your successful recipe (just like I did with my "honey wheat muffins with sausage on TT's post) as the main centerpiece!

  6. The grits in the muffins is bad enough, but DEFINITELY do not try to eat a bowl of cornmeal (instead of grits) :) Thanks for the smiles!

  11. Oh Chandy, thanks for stopping by and reading my post. I was thinking about you at graduation and yes I do know where you are staying. I so wish it was a different time of events and maybe we would have time to meet. Congratulations on your graduation. I know you too are so blessed and the Lord has provided for this miracle of graduation for you too. I hope you enjoy your visit to Phoenix and I will think of you often. Have a safe trip home. I will talk to you next week. Hugs Marty

  13. The grits for cornmeal incident is funny :-) To be honest, in my house we don't have Foodie Friday disasters. It's more like Foodie EVERYDAY disasters :-) That's how awful I am :-)

Niceties first

HELLO AND WELCOME to this blog dedicated to my obsession of tablescapes, and ONLY TABLESCAPES!
That means that whatever I post will be redirected to tablescapes or you will see tablescapes or the dishes and glassware that I used AND wish to use.
I hope you like you what you see; but you can't do that unless you take the tour- the TABLESCAPE TOUR that's on the side bar! I'd also love to take you on my adventures on finding great dinnerwares to display and use while leaving some serious change in your pocket, so stay a while and see all of my great deals!
Wanna know the reason behind the madness, too? Then make sure to read, Why this blog for my philosophy.
