I promised to blog about my gluten-free cooking adventures, the good and the bad. And this is a bad. I guess I can't succeed at everything I try but still, it was sad to have to throw out food.
Remember back in my December Simple Pleasures post I put up a picture of my chicken avocado mix? Well I needed something to put that mix on so I found a recipe for a flaxseed wrap and I thought I would give it a try. It was simple and only called for a few ingredients: flaxseed, paprika, parsley, baking powder, egg, water, etc.
I whipped it up in a few minutes and it looked decent.
So I happily wrapped up my chicken avocado mix and added some lettuce and packed it for my lunch the next day.
It looked good so I took a bite. Hmm... not the tastiest but that's okay. Another bite. This is getting grosser by the minute. Third bite, gag reflex. I knew that I couldn't eat it. It was disgusting and making me feel sick. So I scraped out the chicken avocado and threw away the wrap. So I took some more bites of just the chicken mix. After a while though, that didn't taste so good either. I ended up putting it back in the fridge (no point in wasting all my food) and I ate a bunch of corn chips to make up for my lack of lunch.
It was gross and disappointing. Sometimes my cooking adventures fail and that's okay. The next time I made the chicken avocado mix I just wrapped it up in lettuce and had little lettuce sandwiches. Not quite the same as bread but still tasty.
