Are You A Disaster In The Kitchen?

Sun Apr 01, 2007 7:07 am

I am  Sad

This is a A Cracked Plate....


It's the result of not reading the cooking instructions properly on a frozen dessert I was just attempting to cook in the oven. Needless to say, it's now in the bin.

Anyone else had a mishap like this?

Let the stories roll in  Wink

Don't think so. Made excellent Fillet Mignon (and more) today and usually don't get complaints from the family.
But I was a disaster in the school cooking class, I think I managed to sear a nun's clothing once. Of course, that has been a little while ago..

Isn't that what restaurants are for? But after a quick look around my place, I think you are referring to the place in my house that we always referred to as beer storage. Its got a big chilling device that keeps my beer cold and a few drawers that hold church keys and corkscrews.

If this is the place that you so speak of...I guess I make a pretty mean Gato Taco and Tamales.

I don't think I'm a disaster...

The kitchen usually looks like it was bombed until I clean it, but the result is pleasantly acceptable Big grin

Well a few years ago i was warming up a baked potato in the microwave, i heard a sound coming from the microwave and didn't think anything of it.


So the microwave goes off and i go to get my baked potato. Well apparently the dish had cracked just like yours Lee. I didn't know this, so i grabbed each broken half without knowing. It was extremely hot and i was getting ready to put it down when the potato had fallen through because each half of the dish separated and fell right onto my wrist. It was extremely painful and it gave me a second degree burn. The burn blistered up a day later. It was blistered and red for about 3 weeks. It was a bad experience.  Sad

Not usually, except for the time I forgot to put the carafe into the coffee drip-maker when I started it,
or the time I put too much cognac into the fryingpan when I was going to flambe some veggies under a greasy kitchen-ventilator

Quite right, eating out should be interspersed with the odd take away or home delivery pizza Big grin

I am quite good in the kitchen though, I love cooking steak, I like preparing salads and I enjoy trying new things. I don't however like washing up, which is the only down side of cooking.

I do all the cooking in the "relationship." Things get broken every once in a while (one glass and one glass ramekin), but that's the way things go. I think I'll head back home and have some more of the tiramisu I made  Wink

I have managed to burn mashed potato on one occasion - though my potential for disaster is limited as I exist mainly on ready meals.

This happened a few years ago when I used to be a drunk. I was shitfaced one fine July day and thawed some steaks in the microwave. I found them three days later. They were brown, black, green, purple, and blue. I never thought meat could be so nauseatingly beautiful.

I never cook. NEVER. The only thing I can do, is ANZAC biscuits...

So whenever I move out, I guess I'll be living off biscuits, made of flour, butter, syrup, brown sugar, water and baking soda...  cry

Nope, in fact just this evening I treated my husband to a home-cooked meal of roast beef, crispy roasted potatoes, asparagus and homemade strawberry ice cream.

It has taken some years of experimentation to get to this point, however.

Yeah, and there's always at least one genius who tries to pour a cup while it's still running. Last time my brother did that, he just stared at the drip for a few seconds, as though he couldn't quite figure out what was going on.

I guess maybe you had to be there. But it was a crackup.

Lee, not to worry....one day you'll be able to cook....it takes years of experience. Hey, you just have to find yourself a wife that can cook for you!!!  yes 

I love cooking......I can cook anything and I always cook from scratch. I find cooking very relaxing....and fun!

Now when it comes to baking, I'm not that good at it so I don't bother.

What's a kitchen? Oh, the place where the microwave resides? It's actually the only appliance I am enabled to use in that room. Whatever else I touch, it *will* be a mess. All the (real) cooking is done by my partner, I only do junk food and similar stuff  Smile

As long as the microwave is functioning, I am a culinary genius.  praise  Everything I cook turns out just like the picture on the box!!

If it quits, or the power is out, I usually resort to sitting in the floor crying, trying to open a can of beans with a fork.  banghead   cry

Then is when a gas-BBQ comes in handy!

Once, when an underground transformer just outside our apartment in Toronto shorted out during a nasty snow-melt and darkened the whole neighbourhood, I picked up some steaks and we enjoyed a nice candlelight dinner.
Later I boiled some water in a pot on the Q and invited the repair-crew from Ontario Hydro in for some much deserved hot, fresh coffee, still with the candles burning.
