“To err is human…” so, I guess that makes me — super human! Alexander Pope may have been onto something when he penned those words over three centuries ago.
Have you ever tried something and it didn’t work out just as you had planned?
Have you noticed that just when you think you have it figured out, you don’t?
Okay, enough of the rhetoric. What I’m getting at is this, we all make mistakes and, by we, I mean, me.
I had a wonderful idea to write a post about Irish Soda Bread and I thought this was the perfect time with St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner.
So, I mixed up a batch, put it in the oven and what do you know – yes, that’s right, it didn’t turn out as I had planned.
I have been baking this bread for quite a few years, and as luck would have it, or not have it, in this case, the dough spread out into a large round blob.
What is a person to do?
Well… eat the evidence, of course!
It sure tasted good, though, so I’m glad I didn’t throw it directly into the trash.
The moral of the story is this, things don’t always turn out as we planned, but that doesn’t mean the results are any less delicious!
I promise, at some point in the near future, I will actually write a post about Irish Soda Bread, and it better turn out exactly as I want it to, or else… I will have to eat another batch, all by myself
