Here are a few blunders I’ve made recently. The last one is definitely the best.
- Overcooking the asparagus. Yuck.
- Overcooking the broccoli. Yuck.
- Not cooking at high enough heat and therefore not reducing enough the garlic sauce for the chicken scampi. It didn’t ruin the meal, but it wasn’t as good.
- Putting dinner leftovers into a container for my husband’s lunch and then returning the container to the cabinet rather than putting it in the refrigerator.
The next morning, my husband couldn’t find his lunch in the frig so he took a container out of the cabinet and got leftovers out of the frig. He then did something else for a minute and when he came back to fixing his lunch, the container was already full! It threw him off for a second wondering if he had already done it. But he figured it out pretty quickly.
