Curry..fail? and Blogiversary!

I got to leave work early today because the unit was emptying out! Cross your fingers that it stays that way because I am first to be called off tomorrow and want the day off to go for a run, bike, or swim!:)

Happy 4 year anniversary to my blog!!! If you go back that far (or if you've followed me that long), it didn't start as "Raspberry Stethoscope." Nope, it was, "Student Nurse Nicole..." or was it, "Nicole, Student Nurse"? HA. I honestly do not remember.
Either way, HAPPY 4 YEAR BLOGIVERSARY TO ME! My blog may be small, and may not get a lot of hits or have a lot of followers, but I still love it!

I was excited to make dinner tonight from one of my cookbooks: Mixed Vegetable Curry ...


Mr. Cow watched on...

I cannot decide if this meal was a fail or what because FIRST, I burnt the freakin' garlic and ruined the sauce and I thought all of the veggies because it was going in the bitter direction. Then I just decided to dump all of the sauce and cleaned off the veggies. At this point, I was kind of bummed. I really do not want to waste food (money), and I hate when meals do not work out.
I started over and it seemed alright...

By the time it was finished, I was just aggravated.
Honestly, I couldn't taste a freakin' thing. Does that ever happen to you?? You cook something and just smelling it for so long either loses the appeal or you literally cannot taste it?

Mirza literally went back for seconds and said it was GOOD. 
I don't know.
I added tofu towards the end! It was my first time "cooking" with tofu.Perhaps I will like it better tomorrow?

Time to relax and maybe do some yoga.

This happened to me when making a Moroccan Lentil Soup. Something was just missing, it was completely bland. I tossed it in the fridge anyway and to my surprise it was a totally different soup the next day.
Speaking of meals that failed, I attempted gluten-free gnocchi pan-fried last night. They would have been perfectly fine, until I overcooked them :(

Rachael, glad I'm not alone! I find that to be true with soups in general, so maybe my curry will perk up overnight in the fridge:)

I'm sorry your dish didn't taste great, at least it looks pretty yummy right?

Happy Blogiversary! Still love reading your blog and I think I'm one of the few who have read it from the beginning when you had just been accepted into nursing school! Wow! I can't believe it's been 4 years alreay, my how time flies! I think it was: Nicole, Nursing Student. Anyway, I love that you blog about food now too because I'm a big foodie. All the best! xo

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog and happy blogoversary! I hate it when my cooking doesn't turn out... but thankfully it does more than it doesn't. :)

Happy Blogiversary! I've definitely had failures in the kitchen, something can look and smell so good but somehow it just doesn't pass the taste test, like my artichoke and spinach strata, how could that be bad? The birds and squirrels liked it though!
