people's confessions is good for the ego!
So what cooking blunders have you committed? I've done some doozies, but this is the one that comes to mind just now.
I had cooked up some bacon that morning, and for some reason just never got around to removing and cleaning the pan. Just lazy that day, I guess, especially since I then went on to break my own rule of never cooking in a dirty kitchen. I was

Well, I got the fire quenched, and figured the pan was ruined, (I envisioned great, peeling blisters of teflon) but it came through fine. I'm really glad the house did as well. Color me sheepish.
I have more; I'll post a couple after you
do. Show me yours and I'll show you mine.
