Worst meal cooked in recent memory.

I think most of us here consider ourselves very good home cooks. But occasionally something goes wrong, sometimes horribly wrong. My worst meal in recent memory was a halibut that I intended to bbq but then it stormed so I decided to bake it with some garlic paste on top. I wayyyy overcooked it, it was like dry rubber, terrible, and the garlic paste went weird, bitter, yuck. On the side was mushy minty peas. I had bought some peas from the farmers market, got them home and shelled them to find them old and dry, thought that they would make great mushy peas, I guess not. Maybe if I had soaked them first, the mushy peas were starchy, didn't mush up right, no matter how long I steamed them and added butter and water. Horrible. Only saving grace on this meal was some nice crisp roasted potatoes. I threw most of mine away, the SO ate his out of hunger.

Fess up.....what is your worst???
