Recipe For Disaster

Recipe For Disaster
Originally uploaded by pointybunny
Last night I was making a casserole for dinner. Since moving here I cook more at home than I ever have before. Many foods and ingrediants I normally used are not available to me or are too expensive so the only answer was to make my own variation of recipes. So I have had a recipe book going for a long time with all my substitutions and ones I made up.

Well, I am getting ready to make our dinner and I put the recipe book on the oven (you can see where I am going with this) and turned on a burner. I start cutting potatos and talking to T who is playing with baby girl and all of a sudden it occurs to me that the house is getting really smokey. Turn around and see my recipe book on FIRE! I put it to close to the burner that was on and the edge caught fire and quickly spread. Without a second thought I grabbed the edge and threw it in the sink and turned on the tap. Smokey, smelly and soggy is what my recipe book is now. You might add in "Ruined"

So Check out this Commercial, it cracks me up.

Had to giggle (probably wasn't so funny to you though) at your mishap in the kitchen.....as I've lost count of the number of long cooking chopsticks I've done that to over here!

Loved the clip....tune is a real blast from the past as it used to go something like "if it weren't for your gumboots where would ya be....." Arggghhh..this is going back quite a few years though!

lol, Fiona i added that commercial with you in mind. Its nice when you are far from home to see a funny reminder of life. If that makes any sense.

I keep all my long handled chopsticks in their packages because I am pretty sure i would burn those too! ^^
