My appetite has finally returned and my hate for raw meat has lessened... That means I want to start really cooking again. I made a successful Crockpot Lasagna on Monday night, yum! Pinterest recipe!
However... last night... my "orange chicken" was a fail. majorly. yuckoh. Sad story.
I had the crockpot on low (just like the directions said) but it apparently was too hot for these little chicken pieces and burnt... real bad. Like I came home and I could smell the burnt-ness. YUCK!
My husband of course was so sweet about it and instead we had a date night in the middle of the week... to my favorite restaurant near our house. I felt awful (hormones) and like a complete failure. He reminded me over and over (and over) again it was fine and just a mistake. Ha! I was so sad about my burnt orange chicken. So sad.
I thought about how often I fail in other areas (that matter more) and how I respond...? God does NOT view me as a failure, but responds like my husband did in this situation.... picks me up, reminds me WHOSE I am and let's me learn from my mistakes. Of course failure is never fun, we all want to succeed... right? BUT, we can learn from our failures and that in and of itself is worth it!!
