What was your worst food/cooking related experience?

Post your or someone you knows worst injury, recipe disaster, anything. Could be as simple as a way overcooked turkey for thanksgiving, cutting your finger slicing an onion, burning half your kitchen down, or a family picnic where everyone got food poisoning from the potato salad you purchased from the local store.

This thread should be pretty interesting.

my boyfriend's aunt was getting thngs ready for thanksgiving dinner. she had a fridge with the freezer ontop. you guessed it, she dropped the turkey on her foot so she spent the whole night at the e.r. so we went over and helped her make the dinner. it would have been too hard for her with a broken foot.

My hubby set our oven on fire making biscuits once. I had cooked something the night before & grease ran over in the bottom of the oven. Well, before I got up the next morning, hubby decided to surprise me with biscuits. As the oven was preheating the grease caught on fire. By this time I was out of bed. Anyway, TC was 3 at the time & he hid behind the front door & Savannah was about 5 mths old & still had a heart monitor. I was trying to grab her without jerking the leads off her & get TC out the door at the same time. Hubby grabbed the fire extinguisher & put the fire out. It took forever to get that extinguisher stuff cleaned up. Although the oven was fine(we had it checked out) my MIL insisted we get a new one & bought it for us.

OUCH, big frozen turkey falling on your foot would hurt like heck. Did it break any bones?

This is a good place for a first post.

Anyway one time I was simply heating up one of those lunch bucket things in the microwave for a snack. The only thing is I forgot to take off the metal lid and it blew up like a lasagna bomb. It completely coated the inside of the microwave with tomato sauce.

I blew out a microwave once by leaving an arby's sandwich in its wrapper. Wrapper had tin foil in it I guess. My parents were pretty mad.

Most of my kitchen disasters seem to involve the microwave. Another time I put in a frozen loaf of bread to thaw in the microwave and I forgot about the metal tie on the end. Moments later a small fire was starting but we caught it before it got out of hand.

Mine was probably a burn while brewing. Now I've got pretty heat resistant hands, and have had more than my fair share of contact burns (hitting hot grates in the oven, etc.), but to me, that's nothing like having your whole right hand immersed in 170+ degree (F) water!


That was "quite" the experience!
