Day 365

Deviled Egg

Well, here we are at the bitter end. Or, more appropriately, the gag-filled end. I didn’t technically choke this one down — it would have taken a miracle for me to have swallowed this smelly, goopy mess. And I don’t think they would have named the snack after Beelzebub if it had been capable of miracles. To make matters worse, now my kitchen smells like holy hell. (I had to whip up the instruments of my own torture, soldiering through the fumes and slime and mushy egg entrails.) But I did it. I stood up to my bogeyest bogeyman. So what if he kicked my butt? (For a peek at the agony of my defeat, there’ll be a video on Picky Niki’s Facebook page, courtesy of my impish daughter.)

Day 364

Mole

Sorry for the delay! Stupid internet went down after an epic day of cooking. Very frustrating. Anyway, here’s the much anticipated Day 364:

I decided — on this end-of-experiment eve — to stick myself with one more insanely complicated recipe. So of course I had to go with mole. Used this recipe. Mine turned out greener and thinner than the pictures online. No matter — it was good. But, since it took at least 3 hours and dirtied most of my dishes, I don’t think I’ll be making it again anytime soon. Sure will be nice to go back to living on pizza and beer after tomorrow …
