This was my (Jessica's) attempt from last night to make macaroni and cheese. Macaroni and cheese! This comical disaster was topped off by frantically trying to put out the fire with whatever was closest to me, which as it turns out was my spray bottle of DIY vinegar cleaner. This of course didn't put out anything, but instead made the house smell like burned vinegar and set off our fire alarms which are at the top of our ten foot ceilings, making my kids start screaming that the house was on fire.
The kicker? I stopped in the middle of all this to take a picture. WHILE IT WAS STILL BURNING!
Because apparently I have blogging so ingrained in my habits that even something this ridiculous gets photographed instinctively. Just for you all! Because you know the first thing I did after my husband took over and cooked dinner was write this post up, snickering behind my computer screen the entire time.
The moral of the story is; don't be fooled. Never assume that beautiful staged food photos and good recipes mean that your favorite bloggers have it all together.
