Oh, what a dud!

I assume that this has been covered at some point before, but I couldn't find it in the archives, and needed some group catharsis so, here goes.

Last night, my dinner was inspired by beautiful finds at the farmers market, a relatively pricey piece of fish, and a whim. I was very excited about both the preparation and how it was going to look on the plate. I made purple cauliflower puree, garlicky braised collard greens, and sauteed a nice looking mahi mahi filet. It was all very eh. And the colors, which in my head were going to be bright and interesting and fun (purple cauliflower puree!) , were just disconcerting. Like eating muppet.

So, SE'ers, lend me some support. Tell me about your most recent and fabulous dud.
