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?
