No, we don't want to hear about all your secrets. ha! I thought this would be a fun group for talking about your worst kitchen disasters. I've heard some doozies over the years, and I'd guess we've all had them. Care to share?

Many moons ago, when living at home, I was making zucchini bread...using the blender back then to chop it up...well, a chunk got stuck & I stuck a wooden spoon down through the hole in the top to dislodge it...but forgot to turn the blender off first! omg, my neighbor was sitting there talking to me & she just about died laughing...terrible noise, pulled out the spoon & there was barely any of the spoon part...I just blended it a little more, making sure no splinters remained & went ahead with the recipe...never told anyone what happened & I threatened her with bodily injury if she squealed...lol, it didn't hurt anyone, couldn't find any evidence of that wood! So we ate it, survived and got a little extra fiber! I never did that dumb trick again...I've learned to be more careful...well, except with the knife!!!
Knife incident Fri night past...was chopping green peppers for my Stuffed Pepper Soup (was making it at midnight!)...had just sharpened my big ol' santoku knife...welllll, you know how you're supposed to hold something you're chopping by using tips of finger as it's bent...I was doing that, but got my left middle finger too close to the end & chopped off part of my fingernail...lol, no blood, no major damage...I did manage to retrieve the nail piece so it didn't go in the soup...duh, I don't usually do that kind of stuff but guess I just wastn't paying close enough attention!! ♥

I just posted this on another group, and was asked to post it here. Hope it brings you a chuckle - I title it "The best Thanksgiving blunder".
I can remember my grandmother dropping the beautifully roasted turkey on the floor (it slid off of the platter), my grandfather was right behind her, did not have time to react, and basically punt-kicked that poor bird clear across the linoleum kitchen floor. The adults were horrified, we 9 kids just busted out laughing.
Went home and did just as she did....they looked so pretty and so brown. But my biscuits didn't seem to be as tall as hers. Removed them from the oven which was near the sink....dropped a biscuit in the dish water and it floated! Oh no...I knew something was wrong. Picked up a biscuit and it was hard as a rock....my husband started laughing. I went to crying....ran to the phone and called grandma and asked her what did I do wrong? Come to find out she forgot to tell me you use self-rising flour. By the time I went to find my husband....him and his brother were outside with all the biscuits throwing them to see how hard they could hit the dirt with them....I busted out laughing....I made bricks instead of biscuits!
Well as I said that was many years ago...my husband then is now my ex! And as far as biscuits go....I pop open a can every time now and have perfect biscuits!
