My tahini sauce had gone rancid. I decided to outsmart myself by buying sesame seeds and keeping them in the freezer.

Guess what. I made some tahini sauce with those sesame seeds, it looked so good, today, and the sesame seeds had gone rancid! No tahini sauce today.

Today was not exactly my day. I have stickers and a permanent marker on the shelf ready at all times to mark food going into the freezer.

Today I found a UFO, unidentified frozen object. No idea what it is.

Shrek can;t believe I have an individual container for each type of cut in the freezer. But of course, you still can't find anything, because they are all covered with popscicle boxes...

I have had many a failure in the kitchen. I reckon the worst was when I first tried my hand at cooking, many, many years ago. I was trying to make a cheesecake from scratch. Misread the recipe TWICE!!! Instead of a 1/4 tsp of salt I read 1/4 cup.
I thought that was too much, but......that's what I thought it read.
Holy Mackerel!!!
It was, needless to say, inedible and to this day when I read a recipe and if I ain't sure about a measurement, I trust my gut feeling as I should have done the day of the cheesecake fiasco.

Never try cutting corners by first browning meat on top of the stove in a Pyrex dish before finishing off in the oven

Lesson learned: Glass shards are dangerous and hard to clean up. What a mess. Now I'm not so lazy.

Child--you--child--you, hmmmm.....young at heart!

Those sound delicious, I've never seen those flavors, I'm deprived.

Linda-I've done that, only once.
