Joyce from "This side of the Pond" used a question I had sent in for her Hodgepodge Wednesday, so how could I NOT answer it too?
I've been too busy to read many blogs or comment, so I barely noticed that she had chosen my question. But I have many answers for that question....
My question was: 3. What was your last kitchen 'mishap'?
People who know me well, know I have had many mishap's. I've burned many a cookie in my time and also an instruction booklet. That was when I got a new counter top oven for my birthday and turned it on to try it out, without looking inside first, which is where the booklet was....
When I smelled smoke, I thought to myself "hmmm, do new ovens always smell so bad??" I came just in time to stomp out the flames.... LOL!
But my most recent mishap was every time I baked something in my oven it smelled so burned. The food I had baked wasn't burned so I couldn't figure out what was the matter.
Till one day I finally knelt down on my knees to see what was causing this and found this in the bottom of the oven:
Guess what it is? No not the piece of dog poo it looks like...hahaha
I sometimes toast stale rolls and I had done so a while back. When I took them out I didn't realize one roll had fallen off the cookie sheet and was baking along every time I baked something new...
Or the other time I reheated a casserole, and forgot to take off the (plastic) lid.
This is what you get from that:
And yes, I do enjoy documenting my own mishap's with photos and my own amusement. What is funnier than laughing at ourselves?
