cooking faux pas

this is just to be funny or what was I thinking


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 ( ) 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.

Re: cooking faux pas

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

Re: cooking faux pas

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!

Re: cooking faux pas

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

Re: cooking faux pas



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.

Re: cooking faux pas

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

Re: cooking faux pas

'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)

Re: cooking faux pas

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.
