Yesterday I had one of those “I can’t believe I did that” moments. First, a little background.
About a week or two ago the propane tank on my grill became empty. My husband keeps an extra on hand so he swapped it for a full tank.
Then on Monday I cooked bacon on the grill. I like to bake bacon on a cookie sheet in the oven. Grease doesn’t spatter everywhere, but it does require a hot oven. So in the summer I use the grill as my oven and cook the bacon there.
Well, when I went to check on the bacon, some of it was beginning to burn so I whisked the baking sheet off the grill and into the house.
Two days later (last evening), I went to heat the grill for hamburgers. I thought it was odd that the knobs were turned on and the fire wouldn’t start. Then I check the tank knob which I had just turned only to realize I had turned it off which meant that it was already on.
The propane was on and the burner knobs were on which meant I never turned them off two days before. The new propane tank was empty!
Have you had any kitchen blunders recently?
