Take Two

Take Two indeed. Time to take stock and revamp. I kept up with the four-dishes-per-month times three-recipes-each testing quest for all of three weeks. Then Reality came a knockin’, all gray-skinned and sour in the mouth, telling me that it’s just not going to work out. And, damn that Reality, I’m just not deft enough to catch him with the spray tan, or toss a chocolate into the ole pie hole to sweeten him up. I can’t mask him or change his nasty expression, only take him for what he is and go from there. It’s not an utter defeat, though....
