In other words, today and every day, happy Thanksgiving!
Contest entry # 2
In honor of the day, even if you don't live in the U.S., let's share something. I'll skip the customary what we're thankful for list and get right to the good stuff: cooking disasters or goofs (or anything food-related which one might regret). Tell me one time when something you or someone else cooked (even in a restaurant) where things didn't quite go as planned. It doesn't have to be big. Could be very minor.
And don't worry if you miss this on the day it's posted. You can go back and post on any of the contest entries at any time right up until the day the contest ends.
I'll start. Last night I was baking my usual pumpkin pie and when I took it out of the oven, it wasn't quite done in the center. So I put it back in the oven, just for a few minutes. But I should have been keeping a closer eye on it, because now the edges are a bit...okay, I wouldn't say charred, but on the edge of burnt. An extremely dark ring around the edge of the crust. Not real attractive. Good thing I know that someone else is bringing a pie and my mother has a rum cake on the way!
So...what's on your list of cooking mistakes? Come share.
