Not About Food 14

Taking The Credit

A client invited me over for dinner and served the most delicious Acorn Squash soup I've ever tasted. Creamy, just warm enough to bring out all the goodness. I raved about it for weeks. At one point she mentioned sharing the recipe, although I didn't ask. But, with Thanksgiving approaching I thought it would make a wonderful addition to our family meal so I asked her for a copy the next time she had it handy. Her reply: visit the X market, they sell it by the quart! And off she ran, laughing! Well...I had to giggle...the time had come for her to come clean! I suppose the flavorful bread she served with the soup was also store bought (hahaha)..

Which got me thinking...have you ever taken credit for food you did not prepare? Did you come clean at some point?

Just for fun...inquiring minds wanna know :)
