Monday Mommy Confessions

Monday Mommy Confession #35

As I was cooking beans for chili last week I was reminded how much I lacked kitchen finesse. I got the beans going and then went over to my grandma’s attached apartment to ask her a question. When I came back I found a lake of bean water on my stove top (thank goodness for that lip that goes all the way around. I swear they made them that way just for people like me). As I was sopping up the mess, I would guess 5 cups in all, I realized what a great mommy confession it would be.

It would be one thing if it happened once in a blue moon, but pretty much, accept for straight up water, I boil everything over. Pasta, beans, rice, oatmeal, you name it, I have boiled it over.

I make many things from scratch but I do not do it gracefully.

Unfortunately I didn’t have the brain power at the time to think about taking a picture (I was super sick). Next time I make a mess, which I’m sure will be soon, I will try and take a picture and share with you all, so you can feel better about yourselves!

What’s your big kitchen blunder that you seem to keep doing over and over again?

I always forget something is in the oven if I’m busy, which is always or if someone is trying to talk with me while I’m cooking. I get flustered because I can’t concentrate on two things at once.

I now have a digital clock which has multiple timers on it and once I remember to look at the directions, I won’t forget things anymore in the oven.

After 20+ years I still do that on occasion. I find if I leave the lid off, I hear it & come back to turn down the fire. I guess we are too impatient to go on to the next thing to wait until it comes to a boil & turn down the fire so it won’t do that boiling over thing. Thanks for sharing & your beans look they were doing good. Beans are so easy to do & can be used so many places in other dishes or by themselves.
