So here is this recipe. I actually made this for the first time months ago, took pictures of it, was all ready to post about it, but then it didn’t happen.
Why you may ask? Because I am technologically unsavvy.
I remember it vividly, I had typed up the directions and ingredients and was on my way to post it, when I tried uploading the pictures from my camera and I couldn’t find them!
I was sure I had taken pictures of it, I remember asking my mom if she remembered me taking pictures of it, neither of us could figure it out.
Well months later I think I figured out why. See, all of my pictures usually go into one folder on my camera, and for whatever reason, those pictures ended up going in another folder. And of course by that time I had already cleaned my camera of all of the pictures. So those pictures are no more.
But that’s ok. Making this recipe over wasn’t a big deal. I ate probably this whole thing, again, but it’s healthy! It works itself out!
