First the Orange Hoisin Chicken was overcooked in the slow cooker. I didn't even serve it for dinner - we had chili dogs instead. It was edible though. I chopped the chicken up and mixed it with the brown rice and the sauce and had it for lunch and it really wasn't that bad. I just had too much pride than to serve that sawdust chicken to my husband.
Then there was my worst disaster since starting this blog. I put together a corn and crab (well, imitation crab which the recipe gave as an option) enchilada casserole that I really don't think anyone is going to eat. The 'spicy' sauce included cinnamon and cloves. I left out the cloves but I should have left out the cinnamon since I think that's the big turn off. There were at least $10 worth of ingredients in that dish that will end up in the trash. I was amazed to put together something inedible. It was from my one of my favorite cookbooks too, Favorite Brand Name Slow Cooker, Casseroles and More. This was the first time I didn't feel a recipe was worth sharing.
That casserole has really made me lose my confidence in my recipe choosing abilities. I threw sausage in the crockpot for tonight's dinner. Which means the Fiesta Sausage and Rice recipe I was going to make for tomorrow night won't happen. I hope I can find a good replacement.
