Since you shared that, I can no less share my secret mess.

I made a 16in pizza in my oven. Since my stone was only a 12in stone, I made this pizza on the rack only.

When it was pretty much done, I went to take it out. It completely dribbled onto the bottom heating coil when I tilted it. Yoou can only guess how much of a mess, and how long I took in cleaning it up I had to deal with.

I have only shared this here. I was too embarrassed to share it anywhere else.

Thanks Barb for letting me share this...

I'm sure we have all done something like that! Did you read my post about dumping pumpkin seeds all over the oven a few weeks ago?

Not yet since I've been away for too long a time. But you can bet I will look for it. You are easily one of the peeps on DC I always looked forward to reading. You always have something interesting to say.

Whether or not to clean off a dropped food item is seldom an issue in my kitchen. I have 3 miniature pinschers who closely shadow my heels every time I am involved in any type of food handling. They are well aware of my poor eye-hand co-ordination and take every opportunity make it work in their favor. I have to be careful not to turn around quickly or might run into one of those upturned faces. Any thing that I may dribble or drop usually never makes it all the way to the floor. The lucky recipient will jump up and catch it in mid-air, much to the disgust of the other two, which will take their eyes off of my hands only long enough to glare at each other and jockey for a better position. If I happen to drop something substantial, say a piece of meat the size of a pork chop or chicken leg the resulting brawl will become a furry dust ball that migrates around the kitchen floor until the piece is totally consumed, at which time I must risk my fingers to retrieve the bone as I don't allow them to have those. Cooked bones can be dangerous to dogs. Dangerous to me, too, when I try to pry them loose from those vise like jaws, but I love my dogs, so no sacrifice is too great. I only have one rule. If I happen to dribble beans, then the offending (lucky) dog or dogs are banished from my lap for at least 24 hours.

Don't forget the fact that bones are good seasoning for beans. After they are washed off, of course.

It depends on how damaged and dirty it gets and who I will be serving it to.

I once had to wrestle the dog for the roast beef My rule is that it is fair game when it hits the floor, but not the guaranteed property of the critters.

I remember once our little Pekinese-???? mix of a feisty dog tried to steal a roast
from the table... We shaved off the dog munched part and ate the rest.
