Friday Fuck Ups: Not Learning From My Mistakes
Maybe recipes are useful.
Okay, so I have these beautiful Le Creuset ramekins and all I want to do is make baked eggs all of the time. But since I totally *fucked up* this first time, I was hesitant.
It was one of those nights where we just had odds and ends in the fridge. Nothing to make an elaborate meal. And there was no motivation to go to the store.
Anyway, this is a simple tale of not having oven instincts.
I try to roast squash in bulk so that I’ll have some on hand to throw into whatever I’m making. This edition of leftover acorn squash included me smashing it with a fork, until creamy, with some harissa. I then pushed that on the bottom of the ramekin. Dropped an egg on top, sprinkled with salt and pepper and queso fresco. Put that in the oven for, well, WAY over the allotted time. I again freaked out at the 9 minute mark and kept it in again for 15 or so minutes. It just doesn’t look done at 9. The whites are still super runny. What am I supposed to do?!?!
Well, at least this time the top of the yolk was a bit runny, but the bottom 85% was hard. FUCK!
