Did i really just do that?!

I was getting my water ready to boil noodles and began to add what I thought was salt to the water. It was stinkin' pepper! Ugh start all over again, lol. Anyone make any stupid mistakes while cooking?

  • Well, we had beef and noodles once...or should I say beef and noodles and winterfresh. I am assuming the kids dropped some gum in the dry noodles and I didn't notice until I had stringy gum coming up on the spoon. LOL!

  • I was making my ex's lunch early one morning (i mean early like 4 am) and put miracle whip on his peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He bit into it at work and freaked out. His co workers got a good laugh out of it.

  • Oh, and this one still makes me laugh even though it wasn't really an "accident", just when I was still a little new around a kitchen. I baked a strawberry pie. Turns out, I was only supposed to bake the crust. LOL! When I pulled it out, all I could see were these white berries floating in strawberry "water". I sat it on the counter and LP thought he was obligated to eat it (when he still cared about offending me LOL). It wasn't until a week later he told me my strawberry pie "wasn't very good" LOL No crap!

  • I added salt to my coffee this morning... "I'm losing my mind I swear, but I don't care."

  • LMAO texasgurl! That is so funny. Something I could see myself doing! My husband probably would have ate it anyways and asked me later what I did different. He tries to be sweet about my mess ups, which is a good thing.
