And double check that you have all the ingredients before starting. There is nothing worse than getting 1/2 way done and finding out you are missing something, dont have enough.

This happened to me the other day. I made chinese food for dinner, just to realize i had about 2 Tbs of uncooked white rice left. So, this meant a quick trip to the store. We never ever run out of white rice, so i assumed we had enough.

I found out a the hard way on my outdoor stove top not to wait for oil to boil as an indicator that it is ready for frying. Thank god it was outdoors as shortly after bubbling the fire ensued.

Also drinking and cooking don’t always mix, especially when it might lead you to thinking that oil should boil like water.

LOLOLOL!!!!!! Now THAT is a pearl of wisdom. Here's one I said while drinking and cooking...

"Grenades ain't pineapples but both can tenderize tough meat."
