"Mistakes in the Kitchen".
Oh, those yummy biscuits!

But on this particular day, I made from scratch these lovely baking
We all gathered for supper.
Hungry, I am sure since we are talking about farm folks here. So after a short blessing, we all filled our plates and began to eat.
I'm not sure who was the first to bite into a biscuit, but what a surprise! A bitter aftertaste that sucked your lips in, leaving you wondering if there might be a lemon in your biscuit.
No. Not lemons, but how about BAKING SODA.
Yes. Unfortunately, I had used BAKING SODA instead of BAKING POWDER. It really makes quite a difference.
Now I was the baker in the family and THIS was out of character for me. It will definitely go down as an unforgettable event in our family.
In My Defense
I'm not the only one who had a mishap in the kitchen.

Yes, it wasn't long into the process until they realized that they had put 1/2 CUP of salt into the mixture instead of 1/2 TEASPOON!
Mom did the math to see how many times we would need to double the recipe. It was such a large number. I think we would still be eating lemon bars today!
That dough went into the trash!
Moral of the story
God gives us the recipe for a godly life, if we don't follow the recipe to the letter, we may end up with a bad taste in our mouth. Follow God's law and you will "Taste and see that the Lord is good!" Psalm 34:8
What about you?
