cooking faux pas
 
this is just to be funny or :rolleyes: what was I thinking :o


Back when I was a teen my DM asked me to wash the lettus (note - wash not rinse off, can you see where this is going?). So I washed it ... with dish liquid (:eek: :rofl:) the salad tasted really funny that night, and the meal ended with mom explaining that you don't wash lettus with soap, much less dish liquid.

My FiL once served us some raw baby sliver beet salad leaves that i WISH he washed! :D - We were sitting there eating, and my SiL - his daughter - found a HUGE snail sitting there.

I was poorly one day and having planned to make Thai Green chicken curry my mum offered to make it for me. I showed her the recipe.

It tasted terrible and we realised that whilst she'd almost followed it to the letter she'd used chicken gravy granules instead of chicken stock!

I spent an hour one day walking around the grocery store looking for lemon zest... :o (And yes, I did ask some employees and none of them knew)

:o:p

I have a few stories about ex's faux pas, but in his defense he does have mild ADD.


1st story

He had a bunch of friends over to watch a football game, and put pizza in the over. After a bit I asked about it and he told me something like he knew how to cook pizza, how hard could it be. It turned out blackened - that time.

One from my older sister

She once burnt water ... the pot did not boil dry, but the bottom was discolored - maybe due to stuff in the water

'nother story, but on myself

The first time I made gravy it was inedible ... I forgot to rinse the turkey off after brining it andthegravy was salty. Lucky, I had a backup (gravy mix)

LOL ok I just saw this thread, and what comes next is not recipe related but kind of goes with the OP's original post.

WHen I was young, (about in 4th grade) I brought a Cameleon (a lizard that changes color) home from school, I was instructed to add a drop of water on it's skin to keep the skin wet. Well I told my sister that we had to keep the skin wet. So she (when I was at school) decided to help and give the lizard a bath to get the skin wet. She ended up drowning the lizard, I was really sad but today I think it is one of the funniest stories of my childhood.
