Murphy's Kitchen Laws

Murphy's Law = If anything can go wrong it will go wrong.

There are, without a doubt, many that apply to our endeavors in the kitchen. Here's one to get the ball rolling. Share your favorites.

MKL #1: If you have meat in a plastic bag either thawing or marinating in the refrigerator, it will only leak if you don't put a plate or pan under it.

What are your MKLs?

"Food Prep Time" at the top of the recipe is always just a cruel joke.

You open the refrigerator and reach for the drink you saved .....you guessed it all gone and so is your half sandwich hidden behind it. And everyone you ask say's I dunno!

The recipe you've made successfully dozens of times for yourself, will go terribly wrong whenever you make it for company.

you are so right, made new york no knead bread today. not pleased with the turn out, wouldn't serve it to anyone, much less to my dinner guests tomorrow night.

No matter how obvious it is, if you freeze it and don't label it you won't remember what it is!

I like this one:

Your kitchen sink drain will become clogged when you're ready to do the dishes after Thanksgiving dinner!
