You will not, I repeat, will not be able to cover that up and turn it into something good! Don't try to force on upon your unsuspecting family and hope they won't notice. Save your self the time and looks of disapproval (from your poor family who just can't believe you would do that to them) and just dump it out and order pizza!
At least I assume this to be true...Because it would never happen to me!
Now, where is that pizza guy *looks out window*...I mean, Mmmm, tacos!
As a newlywed (almost 31 years ago), I tried to make French Onion Soup. Followed the recipe to a tee...but it just didn't taste like anything. So, I added salt, and then a little more, and then a little more. I hadn't thought about the broth evaporating. It was saltier than the Dead Sea!!
Another time, I tried to fry oysters. I didn't know that you only fry them for a few seconds per side. I fried them for 20 minutes/side. They were like rocks. Our dogs couldn't even eat them!!!
