The recipe read deliciously. Things tasted fine as we went along. No reason to suspect a yucky outcome.

Set the table with all the nicest china, etc. The whole nine yards.

Sat down, served it up, tasted....called out for pizza.

Buck just said, "That was so nasty!"
Very similar to the experience we had, except we ordered Chinese!

Now we are much more careful about trying new recipes, and pretty good at 'reading' what we think we will like and dislike. That being said, some of the better ones lately have been ones I originally thought would not be good, so I guess you never know until you try.
Thats half the fun I think!
