Paleo Faileo

I’d like to think I’ve become a good cook over the years, but every once in a while I flop big time.  This was one of those times.

*sigh*

I attempted the General Tso’s Chicken recipe from Gather and my boys hated it – as in – would. NOT. eat. it.  I am so disappointed.  The menu looked so promising!  I’d been drooling over this cookbook for weeks, eager to do the Takeout Fakeout menu for my birthday.  I followed the recipe to the letter, other than omitting the peppers due to autoimmunity.

It looked beautiful.  I thought it tasted OK (more like a sweet & sour dish without the peppers) but all the arrowroot starch in the sauce was so heavy.

I am sad to report my failure, as this is one beautiful cookbook.  The other recipes I’ve tried from the authors have been excellent, so I must have done something wrong.  – Or maybe it just won’t work without the peppers.

Next year I’ll just have Hubby and Son take me OUT for my birthday dinner!

Now what am I going to do with 3 lbs of “ruined” chicken thighs? I can’t eat all of this by myself. Oy.

This is where I will be spending most of my day ~ at least until I get up the courage to venture out for more BACON.  (Lord help us, we’re all out…)
