        Hi all,

        I was in the mood to make some  spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs turned out great and I started on the tomato sauce. I was using a brand of crushed tomatoes that I'd never used before.  I put in all my garlic, seasonings etc. and gave it a quick taste. I wish I could've seen my face because it felt like a horrible look. It was extremely bitter. I thought "well sugar should fix this right up". I'm smiling and bouncing around the kitchen. All I had was the sugar dispenser that drops the little sugar pellets. I added a couple sugar tablets....ok well more like 10 or 11. I gave it another taste anticipating a wonderful surprise and it was like a dessert. It was incredibly sweet and the tomato was unrecognizable.

        I added more tomato and nothing helped so right in the trash it went. I have meatballs and no spaghetti. I honestly don't know what I was thinking. I had a moment of insanity and pulled the sugar in on it. I was working on that forever!

        What have you completely f'd up in the kitchen? There's gotta be something right?

(no sugar cubes needed) and place swedish meatballs with a little bit of some kind of... cheese

        I hate when stuff like that happens.I just hate to waste a lot and it about kills me when something gets messed up and theres no fixing it. just recently i had to throw away our hole dinner because the chips i added in were bad. me and my b/f tried eating a couple of bites but it tasted really bad so i threw it out and we had grilled chicken in the G. foreman.I use the packages when i make spaghetti  and i swear it comes out different every time. maybe it's just my taste buds. thanks.

        I called my hubby and told him what happened. He brought home some sauce in a jar. The dinner was saved but we had to force it down. The Ragu tasted kinda yucky.

        I should have just ordered something. I think you're right Imagin, I had a food nationality mix up.

        I mess up almost anything I try to do in the kitchen, that's why I don't go there too often

        Oh dear Froggy.  What a disaster.  You could have squeezed some lemon in to take away the sweetness.

        I've had a few kitchen disasters.  Burnt potatoes, lumpy gravy etc. but the worst was a leg of lamb we bought.  The smell of it when it was cooking was just vile.  It smelt like fat, not lamb just fat.  Did all the usual trimmings - roast tatties, veg, mint sauce.  The lamb tasted like it smelt - it was absolutely vile and we couldn't eat it. 

        Worse than that though - the smell just lingered in the air for days.  I don't think I've eaten lamb since.

        Oh that's awful blue. II wish I would've thought of the lemon.

        I was given a crock pot that I really wanted one year. I was excited to get into the kitchen and create something delicious. I bought a beautiful piece of beef, added wine and veggies. It smelled like something I've never smelled before. I thought I'd give it a chance to cook a while and see if it got any better. Another meal right in the trash. It killed me to be so wasteful but I couldn't think of anything that could be done to save it. I never used that crock pot again.

        What a shame and what a waste.  It is heartbreaking to throw away food.  Do you think it was the beef rather than the pot though?

        I knew it was my concoction that was terrible. Just didn't have the patience to try anything else in that pot.

        A little food for thought hun (heehee)

        If you had taken your sugary Tomato Sauce and added a bit of Vinegar, you would have ended up with Ketchup.

        Not that you would have cared to put that on your spaghetti either, but you could maybe have used it for something. Lol
