Pinterest Fail

Just a quickie to show everyone how crafty I am.  I saw a great looking recipe on Pinterest last week for Dried Strawberries.  The picture was gorgeous.  The description was scrumptious.  It even compared these dried bits to Twizzlers.  Twizzlers!!  How could I NOT try this?  Further, all you had to do was throw some berries on a pan, salt and pepper them, and put them in the oven.

Easy Squeezy Lemon Pleazy.

Here is the Pinterest picture:
(They look tasty, right?)

So, last night, I decided to make this healthy snack.  I followed the directions, but when the oven timer buzzed, my berries did not look like the above picture.  They weren't even halfway dried.  So, I decided I would cover them for the night, then put them back in the oven to dry some more today.

Before I left for work, I stuck the pan of mushy berries back into the oven.  I intended to tell Andy what I'd done and ask him to watch the berries for the next hour or so and see what happened with them.  However, just as I left the kitchen something shiny in the office caught my eye and I ran to see what it was, totally forgetting about the berries.

I remembered them again at 5:30 tonight.

Here is the picture:


 Get ready...

If anyone would like to try this simple, easy recipe for yourself, here is the link:


If you try it, let me know how it turns out.

Stupid Pinterest.
