Yes, just today in fact! It happens quite a lot to me as I don't like following recipes and just tend to throw in whatever I can find in the fridge and cupboards.... tonight's culinary masterpiece was slow cooked beef with an onion sauce. My husband practically licked his plate and my son actually did :)
Yes I have experimented or tried unusual dishes.
I guess I have almost been able to half fill a rubbish bin with the MISTAKES - YUK.
My wife takes one sniff or taste and says she will eat something other than what I have cooked..
So nothing ventured nothing gained, and now I can cook and I think making the odd stuff ups has had it's benefits.
