Something missing mix: Athol Birnie, Burning Hearts, Firetop Mountain, A Camp, BBU, Club 8, New Roman Times, Hilltop Hoods, Eat Skull, Jay Reatard

I followed the recipe exactly putting in proper amounts and appropriate ingredients but the taste test told me there was something wrong. It was good, but not delicious. It required something else to push it to that level. For our cauliflower soup it was orzo and croutons, the lentil pasta lacked salt, the dessert buffet pie dough needed to be cooked longer. That's what this months play list is all about, recipes that are slightly off, missing something. Big O, here we come:

The croutons pictured at the top can be made by simply taking stale bread (the staler the better) frying it on two sides over olive oil and garlic (until browned) and then topping with salt and pepper.
