Food Fail--Stuffed Cabbage
The way I know to make stuffed cabbage is with ground beef and rice, topped with stewed tomatoes and baked. Well, I thought maybe lentils and and a lot of herbs for something different. I was out of rice at the time and didn't want to fight my way through the grocery store. Then I thought, hey! Breadcrumbs!
Yeah, no. Here's a tip: Breadcrumbs don't work very well in stuffed cabbage.
It was a gloppy, horrid mess. It was not delicious. I tried to be sporting and eat it, and reminded myself of all the starving people in the world, and you know what? They probably wouldn't have wanted this either. I had pictures of the entire process but honestly, they're gross. You don't want to see it. I kept telling myself that I should just give it a chance. Well I did. Be glad I ate this so you didn't have to.
I will try this another time, but with actual rice.
So. . .anyone want to chime in with food fails of their own? (No, Pamela, it's just you. Juuuuuussst yoooouuuu. . .)
