I know that people make my recipes. I post them, occasionally I get an email or comments telling me what people thought about the creation. Generally the feedback is very positive. There are also a number of people that I have cooked for in recent years that have all told me their thoughts. Still, nothing can quite compare to what might seem like a small event.
Earlier this week, Ashley brought me a canister. I opened it to find 5 familiar looking goodies. Seitan Steaks! She used my recipe and put together the seitan steaks to perfection. She cooked them for her family and friends. She even made a few extras for me to try. It was a fun experience to try my own food for the first time. I was flattered beyond belief that someone would go through all the trouble of making something I created and then bringing it to me to share. It really made many of my recent woes non-existent for a few hours.
I added some Rosemary Fries and Roasted Brussel Sprouts and it was fantastic. With the leftover steaks, I am going to use them in some new recipes. I am excited that someone else did the hard work for me!
