    Ok, so we can all cook a great meal now and then, but what about the terrible ones? Post yours here so that others may learn from your mistakes. Ready meals are ok to include too.

    Tonight, feeling somewhat lazy we thought we would get all American with Morrisons Southern Fried Chicken Drumsticks, Breaded chicken steaks, onion rings, breaded garlic mushrooms and potato wedges. Fucking horrible. All of it.

    Add to that a rather rancid Riverlands Run New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and things are looking bleak chez jonsaan tonight.

    FCUTA!

    I have a delicious home-made casserole and several summery beers, which I'm enjoying in the sun.

    It's not horrible, but I wanted to share anyway.

    I had an Iceland boil in the bag/microwave spaghetti bolognese earlier. It wasn't awful it just, well, it tasted like nothing basically. I had to melt a shiteload of cheese over it just to kill the rest of it off.

    Hmmm. Premade bolognaise is usually terrible. Bad luck!

    FCUTA!

    Just part of a meal, Aunt Bessies Yorkshire Puddings. I'm positive they tasted like soap powder. Maybe the hosts were trying to kill me.

    The Mrs made a spinach ham and cheese pie once, took fucking ages and cost shitloads in ingredients.

    Unfortunately the recipe for some reason made sweet pastry and it was disgusting. We forced a slice down each and the when she asked me if I wanted the rest tomorrow I ummed and ahhed at which point she put me out of my misery by telling me she had no intention of eating any more either!

    My eldest said he loved camembert when I gave him a taster slice. Just you wait till you try deep fried camembert Says I. Anyway the missus gets in some Aldi Deep fried camembert oven cook starter thingy. It smelt of wet dog and tasted like it too. My boy has never touched fancy cheese since....

    I've never understood this frozen yorkshire pudding thing, they're a piece of piss to make.
    4 minutes vs 20 can be a big save at the end of making a Sunday dinner, plus the big ones are great to have in the freezer for a quick meal when you're feeling lazy - giant Yorkshire filled with some leftover stew you've previously thrown in the freezer? Yum!

    Almost had a terrible lunch here today, made a bacon and sweetcorn chowder that looked, right until the last minute, like it was going to curdle and go all rank but it ended up being fucking delicious.

    I find the whole yorkshires with meats other than beef all kinds of wrong.

    FCUTA!

    Frozen yorkshires are vile. Adding some water to some mix and whisking it a bit isn't difficult and most of you have the right arm muscles to whisk it as vigorously as required.

    When you say "some mix", you're referring to flour, milk and an egg right?

    This. Absolutely disgusting, don't know why I bought it; easily the worst food purchase I've ever made.

    Just ate some really creamy potato salad, and plenty of it as it was out of date tomorrow.

    Now it wasn't horrible itself, but the amount I had was. Feel guilty now, fancy going for a jog to run it off but it's a bit late for that.

    Made a chicken rogen josh in the slow cooker today. Very disappointing result. Wife and her friend liked it, I thought it tasted like chicken in gravy with lots of pepper.

    Am going to have to find some better slow cooker recipes.

    Only 3 things in that jar have any place in an actual carbonara; egg, cheese and pancetta.

    Cream? Milk protein? ffs.

    I gave up on my slow cooker, I had thought I was going to get amazing casseroles, curries and soups.

    Never really produced anything that wasn't as good or better from the oven. Though that may be down to my skill rather than the cooker!

    Wtf is that? Carbonara should be almost dry, the twat who first put cream in it should be shot.

    It isn't, there is a very very good reason pressure cookers aren't popular! They turn stuff to tasteless mush.

    I moved on to leaving pans of food out in the sun for a few days. Natural slow cooking. My hotpot is sensational.
