With this post, I am joining in Foodie Friday over at Designs by Gollum.
The theme this week is “Train Wrecks and Bloopers” in the kitchen. Be sure to pop over to Gollum’s lovely blog and check out the other bloggers who have experienced mishaps while cooking. But apparently not everyone has experienced klutzy kitchen moments so there are some great recipes offered too.
I often get many compliments from family and friends about what a good cook I am. However, I felt the ultimate compliment was when Daughter gave me a cute potholder for Christmas the year she was in the 6th grade.
It said, “Mom Makes Everything GREAT!
Awwwww…..isn’t that just the sweetest?
Unfortunately, there was a little…ummm…shall we say…“accident”…with that particular potholder.
It caught on fire when I got it too close to one of the burners on the stove.
Obviously I don’t use that potholder anymore but I still keep it because it warms my heart to think my sweet girl apparently thought I could do no wrong…at least in the kitchen.
The irony of it also makes me laugh and blatantly reminds me that life is full of train wrecks and bloopers … in and out of the kitchen.
Now come back tomorrow and I’ll share one of my GREAT recipes with you.
***Don’t forget I’m having a big giveaway as part of the 3rd Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway Day. Prize winners will be selected on May 30th so you still have time to get your name into my drawings, as well as drawings of the 40+ other bloggers who are participating in this giveaway event .
