I feel like a schmuck. I host Fearless Friday and here I am with no entry. There is a bug circulating my house and a big event this weekend, I’ve been bailing on evening activities and crawling into bed as soon as possible, trying to fight it. I think it’s working.
Fearless Fridays are a weekly carnival where I ask participants to have shown some form of kitchen bravery. The point of the exercise isn’t an expectation of a culinary masterpiece, it’s simply a challenge to step outside their usual boundaries. For new cooks it may be recreating a Hamburger Helper style meal without the seasoning packet. For experienced cooks, it may be a new ingredient or technique. The only rule is I ask participants to share both the good and the bad. Not every meal is a success and it’s encouraging to read of other people’s failures. Sometimes though, a mistake in the kitchen is nothing but serendipity in the making.
