Oh, man. I was working on comfort food posts this week. There's nothing I like more than something hearty thats still healthy. But as you may have guessed from the title of this here post, most of them were gigantic KITCHENFAILS.
I have been having the kitchen month from hell, save for two meals I prepared last week for my boyfriend and I. One of which was great. The other okay. There will be posts to follow.
I had been harassing my mother for her tuna casserole recipe, figuring it would be a snap to get it gluten free. Except then I couldn't find any condensed cream based soups that didn't have wheat (certainly none that were low fat). Since it was 9:30pm and I was starving after working and having class, I decided to just improvise. Bad move when you're tired, hungry, and in a crappy grocery store full of invalids.
I end up purchasing a store brand light alfredo sauce in a jar to substitute. Already, this is is a disaster. Then, I get home and realize that I didn't have celery or celery seasoning. Aaaaand I didn't feel like putting anything in the oven or actually cooking. So I decided that I could create a microwave version of a tuna casserole. Which consisted of a can of tuna, half a jar of this light alfredo sauce, shredded cheese, left over cooked gluten free pasta (that was in EVOO and tarragon) that had been in the fridge for about a week and some chopped raw white onion.
*Cue screams of horror/stomach cramps*
I would have taken a picture but it closely resembled vomit. Which is pretty much what I wanted to do after I ate it. Though I ate all of it. Ugh. KITCHENFAIL. It was seriously the worst thing I have ever prepared. I won't even say cooked, because that would be a total exaggeration.
