Breakfast Fail


Ugh I've had one of those days. It started off with a breakfast scramble fail.

I've seen this over at Carrots-n-Cake.  I thought it would be good.

It looked and tasted like dog food.  Blah.  I ate a few bites and dumped it into the trash.  Even LB said "Gucky mama".  He likes anything.  This isn't the first recipe I've tried from Carrots-n-Cake that's been "Gucky"...

Gym:  An hour of pilates this morning.

When we went grocery shopping I told the husband to get me some spinach.  He got me the huge container.

It's just me this week so how in the world am I going to get through all this spinach?

I fried an egg.

I had ground pork defrosted in a defrost bowl and planned to use it in paleo pad thai.

I cooked it with onion, mushroom, red pepper, spinach, and spices.  I used a little for lunch as my fried egg base and saved the rest for dinner.


Plaintain chips and kombucha.  Almost like potato chips and diet coke.  Almost.


Paleo pad thai.  It was supposed to be breakfast but I was really craving this.  I made it with my ground pork mixture instead of chicken.  SO MUCH BETTER!

Have you ever had a blogger recipe fail?

I'm not going to lie, I think Carrots n Cake is about the worst blog for recipes there is. Sometimes she posts a recipe from an actual cookbook, and those can be good, but anything that she makes up on her own is pretty, well, "gucky"! :) Just my opinion.

Glad to see you blogging again :)

@Erin You said it not me! Haha! I have to agree with you on that one. Not sure why it's so popular.

Make smoothies with your spinach! I buy those and usually put it in my scramble eggs and make smoothies for me and the kids!

Kristen @ Change of Pace said...

@Kelly Good idea!!! I forgot about smoothies!

I was going to suggest smoothies too! Bummer on "Gucky" breakfast. Hate when recipes don't work out :( haven't had a miserable recipe fail in a while. Now I just jinxed myself....

Love the plantain chips and kombucha! One of my favorite "treats" too! I've been so hesitant to try the breakfast scramble! I can't decide if it sounds great or gross but thanks for the warning! I think I'll still to our two ingredient pancakes instead!

I have seen that scramble before and I wouldn't even be brave enough to try it!Sorry it didn't work out though!

I am really excited to try your paleo pancakes, they sound easy and delicious!!

Yah.. the "fails" don't typically make it to the blog though ;) Although for the most part they tend to be okay, just not good enough to post.. i only put recipes up that i consider to be fantastic.. the "mehs" get discarded (paper-wise, i still eat them of course)

Start dumping that spinach in smoothies! That is what we do:)
