    Cooking disasters

    My niece, Sophia, has a cooking blog at http://everydaystoriesaboutfood.blogspot.com/

    In it, she chronicles a few cooking disasters that have occurred within our family. You will enjoy my brother Jim's story about ruining his barbeque when he tried to bbq a duck.

    Do you have any cooking disasters of your own to share?

    When my wife and I first started dating, she made a dish called 'green chili stew'. When I went to Oregon to see my family, I thought I would duplicate it, so I called her and got the recipe. Somehow, I wrote down that it was made with canned Jalapeno peppers not mild green chilis.

    Mom, Dad, and my sister and her family were there. I don't remember if anyone else was. My sister took one taste before the meal was served and immediately started preparing something else for her kids.

    Mom put a big bowl of the stew in front of Dad (who gulped his food) and it was gone before anyone else had a chance to take a bite and say, "What the ...".

    Dad grabbed my glass of milk and downed it in one gulp; the only time I saw milk cross his lips.

    Everyone else ate a few bites and went to bed hungry, like bad children.

    My mom gave me her recipe for chili colorado. It called for 3 cloves of garlic. I didn't know what a clove was. I thought it was the whole flower. So how many cloves does the typical flower have? 10-15? So, it had 10-15 times as much garlic as it called for. It was insane.

    This past summer we were camping with friends and I decided to try making Thai curry in a Dutch oven. It turned out delicious, except that it was very, very gritty. We had been placing the lid down in the sand and the sand all got in the curry. We all ate it, but it wasn't quite the same. Sandy curry is not that fun.

    Pic of said event. Can you see where the lid is?

    LOL For sure! It was kind of sad though, we had to throw all the leftovers away. No one wanted to eat leftover sand curry.

    One night, the total food supplies in my house came down to an old avocado and rice. I stirred the avocado into the rice - bad idea. Maggoty-looking grey-green glop. The only seasoning I had in the house was sugar, so I threw a bit of that in. Even worse idea. Fortunately, it made me lose my appetite, so I didn't need to find anything else to eat.

    Other cooking disaster - barbecued-pork shake (the brown one):


    That one made me lose my appetite for several days.
