My 8 year old niece was here a few years ago and we were making a cake with the electric mixer. She pulled the mixer out of the batter and it went everywhere. She just laughed but was a big mess to clean up.

When my brother was about three or four my mom opened a can of biscuits, and he started running all over the kitchen. My mom asked what was he doing and he said he was looking for the little dough boy.That was so funny.How long has it been since we have seen that commercial.

Well, I have to confess. I use frozen biscuits. Never learned to bake one edible one yet. However, I thought I'd put them in the oven and returned the remaining biscuits to the freezer. I had a load of laundry going so when the dryer stopped I went to get the dry clothes out and there was my biscuits??? what a mess!!! Granny has her days!

Someone was talking to me and I was distracted. I do not know how you gals multi task.....but I can't keep two thoughts going. Single minded, for sure.

Blessings,
Ruth

One of the reasons for my screen name:
I was working for a home-party company that sold kitchen stuff (it's out of business now) and I went to demo some kind of decorating tool and managed to spray the kitchen with whipped cream...really impressive, huh?

Ruth, that sounds just like the kind of thing I Do!! I guess the funniest thing was last Thanksgiving. I forgot to put the dressing on the table, left it sitting in the oven. No, it didnt burn, I had turned the oven off, but no one asked about the dressing( everyone but me loves it), guess they thought I just didnt make it. Another time, I left the broccoli casserole in the microwave, and another time, I forgot to put the rolls out. Needless to say, having a big bunch around when I am cooking doesn't work for me!LOL

This happened many many moons ago. I had never prepared asparagus, but thought I would give it a try. I put the olive oil in the pan, prepared the asparagus, and started to cook it. I could not get it to soften up, no matter how much I tried. What I had done when preparing it, was cut off the eating part (looked like weeds and seeds to me), and threw it away. I was trying to cook the ends.

I can't believe I just told this story !!!!!

Awww, RCG, I know the feeling. I still don't approach asparagus without the sense if it didnt taste good I wouldn't mess with the ugly stuff. I tried to fry it....Lord what a mess. I'm a hick living in a big city and without a doubt, lost most of the time. (I hate reading cook books. Until recently I didn't bother but I bought some at a yard sale .... still, the last thing I do is look something up.)

You know Clem55, I'm forever leaving something in the microwave. I learned if I put the sponge or dish rag in there and nuke it for a few minutes it sterilizes it. Imagine what they thought when the crispy sponge was discovered. It had been in there about a week. Soak it and it was fine for use, but they teased me about how much gravy it would take and one said we needed a ginsu knife to cut it with, go ahead and get the pancake syrup.

But at least we are in the Kitchen trying!

OK, OK, you'd think after 26 years of marraige I'd learn a skill but my husband still cooks out of self-defense. I made him blueberry bran muffins (hey, the recipe was found on a cereal box, how hard can it be right?). I might have been doing everything right but I somehow skipped the part where I was supposed to add the baking powder. They were like rocks (or Grape nuts on steroids). You know you are in trouble when something won't crumble even when you throw it against a brick wall.

In my defense, I reread the recipe and realized the ingredients weren't listed in the correct order. I rewrote it and actually made it work last time. I'm actually going to try to kill him again and make some more today.
