*drum roll, please*.... Idiot Chef Mom

Let me set the scene for you: Evil Chef Mom is in the kitchen rocking out to some old school Stevie Wonder not the schmaltzy 80's Stevie Wonder but the 60-70's funky Stevie. She's getting her mise-en-place ready for a surprise for her oldest sous chef Katie, who is moving back after staying 6 months at her Dad's. ECM is looking for her glass Pyrex baking dish and it's no where to be found... until that is...she looks in the oven. Why it's in the oven is anybody's guess. Since ECM had pre-heated the oven, she carefully reaches in the oven with a couple kitchen towels to extract the baking dish as not to get burned for the gazillionth time and sets it in the kitchen sink. "Okay" she thinks," escaped without being burned. Yes!"
CRACK! the Pyrex dish exploded everywhere... into the laundry room... into the dining room... but luckily not into the mise-en-place.


I knew better but I still did it. Isn't there a saying about "a crazy person is someone who does the same thing over and over again but expecting different results." If my new year is starting out this way, I'm going to be in a lot of trouble!

Sometimes these things happen. Even when you do know better. I guess it's one of those things that eventually becomes a funny story.
