Break It Down

When we started this blog, the movie Julie and Julia was just coming out and getting publicity. Aside from reasserting our claim that this blog was a pre-movie idea, I (Tamar) do have to admit that while watching that movie I couldn't help but laugh and empathize when Julie threw a tantrum during one of her cooking nights. I'm finding out that the more I cook, the easier I get frustrated (read: have a major breakdown) when a recipe doesn't succeed.

And so, I present to you Thursday night's complete failure:

It started off as vegan green bean casserole and pasta with breadcrumbs, garlic, tomato and green onion. It ended up as a soupy, oily mish-mosh mishap.

We have our good days and our bad, and cooking is no exception. We ate what we had, but the next day, frozen pizza provided a much needed break.

    Well, Tamar, your first mistake with Green Bean Casserole with Pasta is Pasta - Green Bean Casserole is made with noodles. Live in New York you may, but do not try to deny your Wisconsin heritage.
    Secondly, Green Bean Casserole is not Green Bean Casserole without green beans FROM A CAN, Cream of Mushroom Soup (from a can), pork chops, bacon, and French Fried Onions (from a can).
    If you want to class-it-up for your Big-City-Friends you may add some pimentos for pretty.
    In conclusion - your "recipe" was doomed from the beginning.
