    Default Kitchen Mistakes

    My latest: I wanted to make egg salad. I brought the eggs to a
    boil, then covered the pot. I forgot to turn off the heat. The
    eggs boiled hard for about ten minutes. I chopped them extra fine
    and used extra mayonnaise to make up for the rubberiness. The egg
    salad was edible, but not great.

    What's your latest?

    I never make a mistake. Once I thought I did, but I was wrong.

    Making peanut brittle for my grandkids a couple of days ago, and putting it
    on wax paper. What could I have been thinking!

    Made one of the worst steaks of my life this past week. A tough,
    tasteless piece of meat made worse when I over-cooked it. In my
    defense, even if I had grilled it perfectly the steak would have still
    been terrible.... but I didn't even come close.

    I usually put it on a sheet pan that's been slightly buttered, or parchment
    paper. Oh lord, the wax paper was a mess, and I did know better, but still
    did it. I had the kids pulling off the bits of wax paper, it kept them busy.

    Making multiple batches of 3 different kinds of cookies, followed by a
    peach pie. Completely forgot the last batch of almond butter cookies
    were still in the oven when I cranked the heat up to 450°F in
    preparation for the pie. Caught it just as the cookies turned
    inedible.

    Well, I was cleaning the dishes.......... then the wife says to feed
    the cat. Then the phone rang. In my haste and confusion, I cleaned the
    cat and fed the garbage disposal unit. On the upside, our pet food
    bill has dropped dramatically.

    I incinerated a waffle the other day while busy eating the previous one.
    I expect that's a pretty common occurrence for most folks.

    I did the same thing only the water boiled out. My wife was laid up in bed
    and I put some eggs on the stove and went in the bedroom to be with her.
    Shortly after, she asked 'what is that popping noise?". It was not until I
    heard the second egg explode did I remember them.

    You clever and crafty woman! That's one way to keep them busy with no
    complaints. They knew what the payoff would be.

    This isn't my mistake, but it sure is funny. One of the apprentices
    working in a hotel in a smallish Canadian city, was outside, at his
    parents home, grilling on their deck. Now I think what happened is
    that the curtains billowed out onto the deck, and caught fire off the
    grill. He burned his parent's house down. LOL.

    What did you do with it? Did you manage to make something from it or did it
    have to be thrown away?

    I ate most of it. Should have saved it and sliced it very thin and used
    in fajitas or something.

    I'm too cheap to have thrown it away. <vbg>

    Yeah. I'm a sick **** and I totally fail to find the humor in burning down
    a house.
    Now if he had burned his face off while putting the fire out... That would
    be funny.

    That reminds of another goof up. A few years back, I wanted steak for
    dinner and they were not defrosted. No big deal, that is what the microwave
    does so well. I pushed the wrong buttons and instead of just defrosting,
    the steaks cooked through. A beautiful shade of grey.

    The dog enjoyed dinner, my wife and I went out for sandwiches.
