A Father's Day Comedy of Errors

They loved the dinner despite the problems:
  • I used garlic chives instead of garlic powder, and I put too much buttermilk into the biscuits, making them come out flat.
  • The cauliflower needed 13 minutes to cook in the microwave.
  • While melting chocolate for the lava cakes in the microwave, the bowl broke, along with 14oz of sugar-free semi-sweet chocolate. I ran out to the store and blew a wad on a similar bowl, only this one by Anchor Hocking, and on 14oz of sugar-free semi-sweet chocolate (that wasn't on sale...sigh).
  • The lava cake recipe made way more than the ten it said it would. I don't know what they consider "muffin sized" tins. I used standard cupcake tins and wound up with eighteen of them. Luckily, Warren's father had two.
