Fail

In the tradition of showcasing flops and smashing my, hmm, "rosy" image, I present my marmalade.


Fail. Massive Fail.

This, my friends, is what happens when you scoop a bit of extra-firm marmalade into a pan with some water, to try and soften it up a bit over low heat.

Then take a 3 hour Sunday nap.

I'm surprised I didn't burn the house down! Until I get my head on straight, I'm going to be limiting my stove top cooking. If you can't tell, that is one solid, rock-hard, mass. I can lift the entire pan using only the spoon.

Ouch! I am glad I am not the only one who does these things.

Oh no!! But I've done this too, with spaghetti sauce... when my oldest was about 6 months old. I blame it on "mummy brain". :)

I burned two things last week to a crisp. And I haven't burned anything in probably 15 years. I'm thinking it is not our fault:) Probably some freak electrical activity or something.

Oh wow, we've all been there and done that... it sure is a good thing that you didn't burn the house down. So much for turning those clocks back.

Eeks! Reminds me of a time I fell asleep while boiling eggs. All the water was gone when I came back, and I freaked out because someone had told me that boiled eggs can hit the ceiling. Grabbed the pan with my bare hands (!) and that ended well...
