I really can be clumsy, forgetful and distracted which makes for quite a few blunders in my kitchen. Here are a few recent ones.
Overcooked Ham – I left the Easter ham in the crock pot while we went to church. I started it out on high and meant to turn it to low before we left. Guess what? I forgot to turn it to low. It was still good, but a little drier than I would have liked.
Hummus Mess – I dropped a large container of hummus. It was a 30 ounce container that I bought at BJ’s, and it was about 3/4 full. The container hit the tile floor right next to my foot. The lid popped off and hummus flew onto my pants leg, shoe, and the floor. One of my dogs had her first taste of red pepper hummus and seemed to like it.
Burnt Rice (Twice) – How do you burn rice? You put it in a pressure cooker that is not working properly. Too much liquid escapes and the rice on the bottom of the pot burns and infuses the rest of the rice with a burnt flavor. I don’t know why it took me two times before I decided to take a look at my pressure cooker lid. I think it’s fixed now.
