Cooking Disasters.

Post by Sandra »

Have you ever had a major cooking disaster? A meal totally ruined, nothing could save it from the bin. What were you making and what went wrong? :biggrin:

i was baking a good friend a fully homemade chocolate cake for her birthday. the kitchen of the place i lived in was very small and cramped.

well...i set the cake out to cool a little more while i made the chocolate frosting on a nice little plate. and i turned around to start the frost.

and because the kitchen was so small but my ass was so big?

yep. the cake fell and broke all over my damn clean kitchen floor!!! :sad:

and i didn't have the money to make another cake or the time. i made her some brownies instead and told her the story. she laughed for a good half hour! it was pretty funny but i was so fricking pissed off that i didn't have the damn room to do two things at once!

:hysterical: oh my! that's HILARIOUS!!!

i've had so many kitchen mishaps i can't even recall all of them! i've dropped full dinners all over the table, set and ready, with everyone sitting there!!! i've dropped cookies, pies, brownies and cakes on the floor, bumped them into counters and dropped them onto counters.

yeah, i'm totally clumsy!

Many years ago the pressure cooker head flew of and the ceiling, walls, everywhere was a disastrous mess. :brickwall:

been there, done it...

my favourite was putting the bread dough into the over to rise - and forgetting about it. it did rise just fine, and filled the entire oven, racks, heater coils and all. what a fricking job to clean that was!

This reminds me of an episode of I love Lucy.
