Christy – Try, Try Again

April 20, 2010

in books, breakfast, dinner

So, I tried two new dishes today and neither was stellar. But I know where I went wrong and I am sure the next time I try they will turn out great.

For breakfast, I tried to make the Yam Wild Rice pancakes that Brendan Brazier gives the recipe for in his Thrive book. He says they make 2 large servings but I was warned by a friend that I might want to split them up into four servings instead (since I am not training for a triathlon or anything).

In an attempt to make the servings smaller though, I think I went a little too small and they came out thin and crumbly.

He suggests fruit to go with it so I took some frozen blueberries and a little agave and heated it in a pan. The berries came out a little runny though

Looks aside, it tasted great! I can’t wait to try it again and get it right next time. You should check out this book, there are a lot of tasty recipes in there.

Then for dinner, I decided I wanted a “fried rice”. Which basically means I wanted a stir fry with veggies, eggs, and rice and some tamari sauce.

It started out well; I used carrots, garlic, onions, red peppers, broccoli, bok choy, frozen corn, leftover wild rice, and scrambled eggs. But when I went to add the tamari, we were all out. So I just settled for a little toasted sesame oil and some salt.

It looks pretty (unlike breakfast) but tasted really bland (unlike breakfast).

If at first you don’t succeed, try try again. That is definitely my kitchen motto!
