Tell the story of a mistake made in the kitchen

When I was younger, one of my friends would spend the night a couple of times a month and we would have a lot of fun. Lots of our fun would be in the kitchen. We would fix all different meals. My brother would also help us. Some of our meals were great, the ones were we used a cookbook and those we did not use. There was one meal that did not work. We shall just call it Tuna Surprise. I had to double check with my mom to see what exactly we put in it. We decided to put in; tuna, cream of mushroom soup, pork and beans, corn and blue food coloring. Separately all of these ingredients look and taste great, but together they are gray and yucky. The casserole was thick and my mom was the only one who ate it and she said it tasted good. I am not sure what the rest of us ate that night, but I am sure we fixed enough food to fill up. I know since then my experiments have gotten much better. The only time my meals don’t work out is when I try too hard to make it good. And you know, a person can’t always judge something by its looks.


  1. But then again you never know until you try it.

  2. Does this have anything to do with blue soup? Mom seems to be so tolerant of these cooking errors.
