Finally, I Did It!
It’s probably been about 2 years since I’ve attempted it. They all says it’s pretty easy once you get the hang of it, but my first time was a fail so I was scared to try again. The idea came to me the other day. Actually I was eating and I didn’t have any. I thought I could just whip some up, but my fear was it wouldn’t turn out again, so I didn’t. Even as I made this today, I thought, what happens if it doesn’t work? What will I tell everyone? I had already made the decision that I would share my fail with you all. Especially after being called “Ms. Perfect” in class the other day. I feel far from perfect, but I’m sure it was meant in sincerity.
Today it worked. I made mayo, soon to be chipotle mayo. But lets just start with the basics. It wasn’t that hard, it just required patience. I’m not exactly sure what happened the last time tried. But the mayo turned into a soupy sauce, but today, I’ve got creamy goodness ready to be piled atop of……?? I’ve been so concerned about the mayo I don’t even know what I’m going to put it on. I’ll figure it out. So- I would love hear about your mayo fails or successes or share about a recent success in the gym!
