I don't cook

I don't cook and tonight I tried and it turned out HORRIBLE.  It didn't even technically turn out. It was that darn Rachel Ray who had initially inspired me to try this recipe.  She makes everything look SO easy.  So tonight I made Twice-baked potato fritters.  It sure looked good on the show.  I did everything perfectly.  I even used the spoon she had recommended.  It was going very nicely until I started frying.  The first three or four turned out okay and then all of a sudden my fritter-potato balls started disintegrating in the oil.  The bottom of the pan turned into a potato slush.  I wasn't going to give up though.  I cleaned the oil and started again.  Same results.  I got three more and then once again with the mush.  I cleaned the pan again.  This time, no longer was I given three good potato fritters, JUST MUSH.  This is why I don't cook.  We live on Stouffer's.  That is the way I was raised and I turned out just fine.

And PS I was so busy with these potatoes that I ROASTED the chicken.  Hope you like it well done.

HAHA, I think that's funny... and really, it's okay. Alliyah (sp) gave us GREAT advice, "Just dust yourself off and try again, try again..." LOVE you!!!
