We were having very important dinner guests visiting from a sister plant in Europe. My husbands boss who has sampled my cooking many times over the years asked me if I would have these people to dinner. Of course I was thrilled to have dinner guests to cook for, because I get to dust off my very best just for special occasion recipes. Everything was going smoothly and all my dishes turned out perfectly. I had decided to make blueberry pie for desert and two extra apple pies which I often do for those days I am so terribly busy I don't have time to cook so I can just pull meals out of the freezer and supper is ready when it defrosts and cooks through.
I had served everyone else pie and made a plate of pie and ice cream for myself sat down and took one bite. I was horrified to realize I forgot to put the sugar in with the blueberry's. I then had to laugh because everyone was trying not to hurt my feelings and were trying hard to eat the pie without making faces let me tell you it WAS disgustingly bad. Thankfully I had the two other apple pies to rescue the evening. Despite the mishap everyone had a wonderful time. I now taste all my deserts before I serve them to guests.

Okay, newest blooper that happened this morning!

I was fixing my husband an egg & cheese sandwich for his breakfast. Eggs & cheese were cooked perfectly, the toast was buttered and I was putting it all together, when I remembered that he likes his eggs sprinkled with a little pepper, so I grabbed the pepper and opened the top and proceeded to give it a good shake. To my surprise, out came nearly the entire bottle! I had accidentally opened up the "pour/spoon" side instead of the shaker side! I politely walked the eggs into my husband and lovingly sat them down for him. He looked at the plate and said, "you know, I really didn't want quite that much pepper." After a good laugh, I made him some fresh with the right amount of pepper this time!

Once when making homemade spaghetti sauce....

A few years ago, I was trying a brand new recipe for homemade spaghetti sauce. I was just so tired of trying various jar sauces and not being happy with the taste. Anyway, the recipe called for adding a dash of olive oil. I reached up into the cabinet to get my olive oil and proceeded to pour it into the sauce. I thought, "boy, this olive oil is awfully dark" when the smell hit me. I had mistakenly grabbed my vanilla extract and added that to the sauce! The two bottles were approximately the same size and shape and were side by side in the cabinet, I just didn't look. Lesson learned: look at the bottle before splashing! :)

this didn't happen to me but it did between my husband and his ex-wife, whom I've gotten to know.

there was a time when she was making chili and was feeding the dog in between. while her then husband & she were in the midst of an argument she added a can of dog food to their chili and didn't realize it. I guess she thought she was adding in a can of beans. it wasn't until they sat down to eat that they realized it had that dog food smell lol!!

its been a running joke in our marriage when I make chili .. I don't feed the dogs, he does & he doesn't cook the chili, I do!
