Pickled Pinterest Fail

I had a potluck event this evening. So this morning I scrolled through Pinterest, looking for something quick and easy to make in the half-hour I had reserved for food prep in the afternoon. And I found a recipe for cowboy sushi. It seemed like a simple concept: Wrap a dill pickle in lunch meat and cream cheese and then chop it into maki maki. How hard could it be?

Well, I put the container on Gina’s counter and greeted everybody with, “This is a little something I call ‘Pinterest Fail.'” IMG_20160709_161907 In all fairness to the recipe’s creator, I did not follow it exactly. I used garden vegetable soft cream cheese spread, which might have had a different consistency from what was required, and I didn’t do the additional wrapping, because that just seemed to compound the problem I was having with getting it to all hold together. I also used pastrami instead of beef, and it was slick, which made the application of the cream cheese tricky. That may have been my primary problem right there.

But they disappeared in a hurry, so apparently they taste good.
