VA- this happened about 17 years ago and I still can't even mention a bundt cake without getting a snarky comment or a smirk from my husband. I laugh at myself all the time. (Lots of great material!!)

My worst disaster might have been the other night depending on who you ask.

I had a few things lying around the house and needed to make a quick dinner. I sauted some shredded purple cabbage, shredded broccoli (little match sticks) in ginger oil. I cooked up some udon noodles and reheated some leftover chicken. It was all tossed together. I thought it looks beautiful. The dark purple of the cabbage against the thick white udon noodles with some pale green thrown in from the broccoli. I was so impressed with myself based solely on how it looked. I wish I took a picture. My wife took one look and pushed her plate away, which is not how she ever acts. Later, in private when the kids were not around, she told me it looked like I had opened a moneys skull and we were looking at the insides. I guess if you are not used to udon (which she is not) then it could look like that. My son wouldn't touch it, but he is a bad eater right now anyway so that did not surprise me. My daughter started out liking it, but after a few bites decided she did not like it. I ate my whole bowl though and was very satisfied.

What I want to know is how does she know what monkey brains look like...

...and how does she like them cooked?

May I recommend using beets with the udon noodles next time. I assure you, the pile of udon noodles won't look like monkey brains at all. I swear.

My worst kitchen disaster was making something called Salmon Mousse. The dish looked beautiful. Pretty colors and was holiday festive on the plate.

Guests came...and tried it....the dish looked beautiful.

I think we can leave it there. Even the cat could not stomach it. For a long while, friends would say, "Come to dinner? Sure...as long as we are not having pretty food."

When I was about 26 I decided to make my new wife an myself some chocolate mousse. I read the recipe and it said to add 1/2 cup of expresso, so I ground up the beans and added them. It never occured to me to brew it.

The wife said while eating the mousse.....dear this seems a bit grainy lmfao

I have only recently been allowed back into the kitchen to cook!!!

I'm 52 now

I am sure I have Indiana Jones to thank for that.

The udon noodles I like? I assume they must be dried and then boiled before I ever see them. I've had them at restaurants, but I've never had any udon noodles that I am happy with at home.
If someone made them fresh, I would love to try them, but I don't think I am located where that's likely to happen.

I don't get to eat udon noodles or Japanese cuisine in general as often as I would like. Bonito (dried fish) is a pervasive seasoning in Japanese food.
