For all of y'all out there who think I don't make mistakes cooking or everything I do turns out purrrrfect you are sadly mistaken. I have as many f*ck-ups as I do successes. What is life without setbacks??? BORING I SAY!!! This afternoon I placed my garlic in the oven to roast for my pizza tonight. I then proceeded to put some walnuts in a pan to toast slightly so I could sprinkle them over the apple pie pizza. I then continued over to my laptop on my kitchen counter and proceeded to read ALL of YOUR blogs. You know who you are. I was so engrossed in Wedding Planning and Football Games w/no alcohol that I completely let MY NUTZ BURN!!!! And as any man can tell you, it is no good when your nutz are burning. I kept smelling something god awful but did I turn away from the blogs I was reading???? NO. Finally I said to myself.....SELF, something does not smell right. I kept thinking it was my garlic because I completely BLANKED that I put nutz on. Burnt nutz are one of the most hideous smells. Thankfully there are woods right off my deck so I could chuck the nutz. My house smells as if you are sitting around a campfire in one of those native islands where the men wear those long sticks on their dong dongs and we are burning monkey bones to sacrific to the Gods. I need a clothespin for my nose.
Oh and my sourdough starter blew up all over my fridge because I got cocky and added 1 cup of flour and water instead of the 1/2 cup it called for. I tend to do that once in awhile. Get too big for my britches as one would say. Cocky should be my middle name.
