This probably isn’t the best sales pitch for someone trying to build her meal planning/kitchen coaching business, but I just gotta come clean: I, Michelle Calva-Despard, made a totally gross meal the other night.
What was supposed to be my side dish of teriyaki vegetables and rice noodles turned into a soggy, doughy, mass of yuck. I deemed my efforts inedible, which is something I haven’t done in years. Even though the veggies and sauce were delicious, I couldn’t get over the ball of blech that it all became when I added the noodles. These are Trader Joe’s new rice noodles, btw, which perhaps I mis-prepared… I dunno.
The good news is (this is like the part in the job interview when the interviewee turns a negative into a positive) that since I’m such an expert meal planner, I had loads of leftovers on hand and enough other easy-tasty-healthy choices to still whip up something really nice for dinner. 🙂
My husband and son did eat this mistake-of-a-meal (guys… figures!) although they both agreed it wasn’t one of my best.
And thus, I will not be sharing this recipe with you today!
