6/13/2019 - Kitchen Klutzes Day Dinner

https://www.fortgordon.com/kitchen-k...f-america-day/

I've had my share of spills, breaks, etc., but I've never set anything on fire or had anything explode in the microwave. Anything you're willing to admit to?

Dinner tonight will be Greek meatballs (ground lamb) with tzatziki, orzo, and a house salad.

I've had numerous burns and cuts (to me), spills and burns (to food) in the kitchen. But nothing serious like fires or explosions either.

Some other National Days for today:

June 13

Interesting, fun article.. I qualify for Kitchen Klutzes Day..

The article took me back my Army stint at Fort Gordon.. I attended Military Police school there in 1957.. I was 18 and it was my first time away from California and an interesting experience..

Our non klutze dinner was going out for southern fried chicken, mashed w/gravy and a green salad.. Was quite good..

Cake later..

We will be ordering out for supper. We haven't decided what yet.

I have set something on fire. I was cooking game hens for company and they caught fire in the toaster oven. I don't remember what I fed my guests instead. Maybe I rescued enough of it. I had thrown baking soda on the fire to put it, which worked well, but then my food was covered in baking soda. I don't try to cook game hens in the t.o. anymore.

I'm a full-fledged klutz, in kitchen and out. I'm surprised I haven't broken any bones. I've just jinxed myself, right? I did have a kitchen incident, though. Setting the scene: I had just started using my new, glass-top stove. To protect the burner underneath my tea kettle, I had a lightweight pot holder. I think you know where this is going. Once cooled, it took but a minute to peel that melted fabric off the stove. The stench in the house? I bit longer...


Dinner. Gah, it's soup weather. Does't feel like mid-June, for sure. I'm making a favorite Southern Living recipe, quick chicken and barley stew. Lots of knife-work with this one. Wish me luck.

I've had quite a few.
-Taken off 1/3 of the side of my baby finger in the mandolin.

-Burnt a pot past redemption (don't remember what it was but just threw out the pot- I didn't even try to clean it.)

-Boiled so many kettles dry I've lost count. One kettle melted onto the burner.

-Boiled a pot of eggs dry - think I even posted a picture here of that one.

I'm sure there's many more too many to remember.

Hub and I are having a late dinner with DD#2 after she gets home from work. DD#1 had salad and something else for dinner.
So hub and I had a salad to hold us over.

Salad (Trader Joe's Sorrento blend greens, Trader Joe's Wild baby arugula, dandelion greens, black olives, green olives, anchovy fillet, grape tomatoes, Trader Joe's cave aged blue cheese crumbles, hard boiled egg and strawberries) dressed with EVOO, red wine vinegar and spices.

I've used a mandoline two times in my life. Cut a fingertip off both times.

There's a reason why they include a guard with those things...
