Why it is important to read directions!

Oh dear!  I am a little tired and had a busy day, but wanted to make my family a really nice meal.  I decided to make a homemade sweet and sour chicken with fried rice.  So, that being said I started making it.  Well my son needed to be at basketball practice in 2 hours so I was in a hurry and viewing the recipe from my phone.  I had a fit!  The recipe called for 4 lbs of ketchup!  4 lbs!!!  So, I made it according to the directions, since this had been recommended by a lot of friends.  We had dinner and decided that next time we would just leave the sweet and sour sauce out of it.  Way to ketchup-y.  After dinner, I sat down and pulled up the recipe again.  Yeah, that was supposed to be 4 tbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And this is why it is important to read the directions!!!!
