Life's Failures

It had to happen. No successful endeavor can go on perfectly without a failure. We learn from failures.

I was tripped by a herding border collie upon completion of these beautiful stuffed butterfly shrimp. The pan fell face down. The stuffing provided a soft pillow of protection from the floor.

I salvaged the shrimp sans the stuffing and proceed to have grilled shrimp rather than stuffed shrimp.     

It was wonderful.

...not to mention what appears to be zuccini and what appears to be a sausage patty.

here's what I do: I peel the young zuccini on its ribs, creating stripes. Then I cut the zuccini in quarters, lengthwise, like pickle spears. Then I drizzle them with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then grill.

mmmmmmmmmm, shrimp.

Well, if there has to be such a failure, at least it wasn't complete and total. Glad you were still able to enjoy the shrimp!

was the offending Border Collie allowed to enjoy the tainted stuffing?
