An actual disaster. Oh my.

I just thought you should know, yesterday was an unmitigated disaster in the kitchen.  I tried making custard-filled meringues, and I learned (too late) that you can make neither custard nor meringue with honey instead of white sugar.  Some recipe substitutions just don't translate from dry to wet ingredients.

And no, I won't be posting any pictures.  The custard tasted fine but never thickened; the meringues were so thin and liquid that I never even tried baking them.

Next time I will do better!

(Sometimes they have bad days.  Even in Australia.)
