OMG... I am standing in my kitchen, guarding a pan of tomato pasta. I had the brainwave of adding secret calories by adding dark chocolate like the pro chefs do... only I think I added too much.  The pan looks like it is full of molten chocolate and my kitchen smells like a Lindt chocolate factory!!!

OMG he is SO gonna call me out on this one.  He's going to tell me it tastes of chocolate... and there's no going back, it's time to dish up!!! 

Please share your refeeding funny mistakes, I'm in the mood for a laugh tonight and I can't be the only one that has cooked up a refeeding disaster!! 😂

I'll report back shortly.  OMG and I batch cooked. There's enough for 5 dinners!!! 😂

Sandie,
He ate the pasta sauce!!!! He ate everything I gave him!! Half way through he said "what's in this sauce?"  which meant he'd detected something weird.  I told him "oh I ran out of vegetable stock so I had to add beef stock.  Does it taste a bit beefy?" He nodded and finished the bowl!! 😂

I got away with it.  But it tasted vile.  Hats off to my s for not telling me what a bad chef I am 😁

That's fantastic. I think they add dark chocolate to Mexican food. Excellent creative lying! Xx

Some time ago my kids were playing hide and seek and my non ED daughter was hiding under the table and found food on a shelf under the table. I had no idea there was a shelf under my table. Have to laugh about it now. I realized food was disappearing but I knew it wasn't in her clothes or on the floor. Now she can't sit at any of the corners where she can reach this shelf. That's another good topic, creative hiding places.

Good thinking to blame it on running out stock! And kudos to him for eating it. xx
