I don’t get it.
What I don’t get is why they keep happening! It’s not like I’m being careless in the kitchen. I’m not a klutz who is constantly knocking things over. And I certainly don’t go intentionally making messes because I hate cleaning them up.
No, they’re just complete randomness. It’s a box that breaks. A bottle that builds up pressure and I’m the one who opens it first. Someone putting an opened container back in a cabinet upside down.
And who gets to clean it up? Me.
Who also gets to post the messes online to counter all the perfectly cleaned, properly posed, professionally captured food pictures that all the other bloggers put up? Me!
Hey, it’s something, right? :P
Unfortunately, the picture above is the PRETTY version of it, after I tampered and tweaked it into something a person could actually tolerate looking at…and maybe consider eating it.
Let’s go back to the beginning to see how this “masterpiece” started, though. I believe this is from the time I tried recreating the adorable panda bread.
It totally looks like that, right? :P
Anyway, I started with all the appropriate proportions of colored bread dough:
When sliced, the bread pudding *did* look kinda cool. It’s not a panda, but the girls thought it was neat…even if maybe a little bit weird.
It’s a great thing I have this habit of taking pictures of everything. Otherwise, you’d miss out on the glory of my mistakes. In this case, it was a full box of spaghetti that someone opened on the bottom and then put back in the cabinet right-side up. Oops.
Actually, now that I think about it, I’d forgotten just how many times I’ve shared our spills and accidents already:
That’s not to mention the broken cake, garbage disposal mishap, destroyed pans/dishes, random burns, and failed recipes. Oy, we’re a mess! :P
