It's not really that bad. Cinnamon on pasta, that is. Yes, you read that right. I said cinnamon.
I have a habit of just reaching up to the spices and grabbing a bottle and shaking a lot on top of whatever it is I'm eating. I came home the other night after being out all day doing "stuff" and was really hungry but didn't feel like cooking an entire meal. I had some left over pasta in the fridge, so I figured I'd heat it up in the microwave with some butter and parm cheese. I place it on my new "square" plate (I love square plates), open up the cabinet to get the hot pepper flakes...grab what I thought was the bottle (they're all shaped the same), open it up and sprinkled "lots" on top of my pasta. Put in back into the closet and then it registered! WTF did I do? Damn....calling myself all sorts of stupid. Well, I was so hungry and I wasn't going to throw it out...so I tasted it. And ya know something, it really wasn't at all that bad! It was really rather tasty. I think everyone should try it. I mean it. It wasn't bad! It actually enhanced the hot pepper! (I like hot).
(I did that before when I put cayenne pepper in my coffee grinds thinking it was cinnamon! I blogged about that one too).
Is this the way chefs come up with new concoctions?
