your worst meal you made

when we were at one of our no money and food situations I had made this penne pasta dish from the back of the box. Well, It had thyme in it. I kinda put to much tyme in the pasta. WHen my husband and I took one bite we both looked at eachother and said at the same time. "what the heck was is this?" It literally tasted like I went in the back yard pulled some grass out of the ground and fried it up in there. It was horrible

lol nicole, this should be a good thread. i'm gonna have to think about it. i am successful at forgetting stuff like that, and fights with friends, old girlfriends, bad movies, etcetera.

umm, the first one that comes to mind is a beef lentil stew/chilli i made recently. it tasted, well, very bland and boring, but later that night i had to suffer it's wrath . thank god i was working a midnight shift solo, away from sources of flame and sparks... :twisted:

i still have 3 quarts left that i saw in the freezer yesterday. it'll probably go on the compost pile in the spring, with other sources of methane.

lol buckytom - right when I think I'm going to be able to turn the computer off and sleep you make me laugh!!!!

One of the worst meals I ever made - - - - - was probably the one where I was trying to remember from memory a Greek meatball in pita pockets - the meatballs were so dry that when my brother-in-law finally got his first bite swallowed he asked if anyone needed to dry up any swampland.

Other than that it would be a recipe I found where you make soup out of the Kraft macaroni and cheese - YUCK!!!!!!!!!! That was aweful!!!!!

The first meal I made as a new bride many years ago was spaghetti. I dished up the spaghetti onto a plate and set it in front of my new husband. The spaghetti slid off the plate and landed in his lap! A few weeks later, I dumped a rhubarb mereingue pie top down in my oven as I was taking it out of the oven. :oops:

I'm like Bucky....real good at forgetting this kind of thing!

I guess it would have to be the time I cooked pork chops & the cap came off the garlic powder. I went ahead & cooked them anyway because it only covered one of the chops & I thought that if I shook it off it would be ok. Well, I was so wrong! Hubby got the chop with all the garlic powder on it & he pretty much choked!! When I bit into mine it was pretty much the same way. I felt so bad!

I was visiting my cousin--first time I'd seen her or her family in a couple years and I offered to make dinner. We got so busy talking I didn't pay attention to when I put the meatloaf in the oven and I thought it had been in long enough so we went ahead and made the mashed potatoes, veggie, and dished everything up and the meatloaf was still so raw inside that it was cold!

We threw it back in the oven, ate the other stuff and kept talking!

My worst ruined a pan. My wife can't stand liver unless it's made with a tomato sauce over it, then covered with shredded cheese (usually colb/jack). Well, I just had to get distracted and badly burned the dish, in a covered stainless steel skillet. It stunk up the house so badly that we could still smell it days afterwards, and that's in the summer with all windows wide open. The flavor never came out of that pan and I finally threw it away.

Burned liver and tomatoes could be considered chemical warfare I think.
