My Cooking Is Scary!


I was cooking dinner tonight and my 12 year old wandered in, and then immediately left and returned with the camera. She calls this, "The Screaming Spill." I don't know if it's screaming because my cooking is scary or just because the stove top was hot. Either way, it's an interesting shot. At least we think so!

Now you all know that I'm a sloppy cook. It's true. I don't care, though, because clean up is just a part of cooking. Besides, what really matters is whether or not you can eat the finished product. I'll admit that sometimes I try something different and, well, the results don't always get raves. Tonight I was making spaghetti.

Yeah, that's right. Doesn't look like any kind of spaghetti spill does it? That's because I was brewing tea and got sloppy stirring in some sugar. In this part of the country your iced-tea has to be sweet. I like to dissolve the sugar into some hot tea and then pour over ice. Not that you care, but there are apparently 'right' ways and 'wrong' ways to make iced-tea. Not sure which category I fall into. Out West I didn't sweeten my iced-tea at all. At any rate I managed not to drip any spaghetti sauce on the stove top. Aren't you proud of me?

It does appear to be screaming.

Great picture.

"...what really matters is whether or not you can eat the finished product"

See, I have the opposite problem, I am extremely clean and organized when cooking, I clean as I cook and stuff...but the food is not good.
Boo hooo.

I'm glad you pointed out that the picture was screaming because I assumed it was, you know...The Madonna.

Naw... for it to be an authentic sighting, it needs to be burned into the side of a burrito or something...

However, what you have there could be an alien communication...

Wow- she does have a good eye! Too bad you can't sell it on ebay!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

That is quite the interesting spill. When I spill things it generally doesn't stay on the counter. I'm not quite sure how it ends up on the walls, but I always have to do some floor cleaning after making spaghetti... Don't worry, you pretty much got the sweet tea thing right - heat it up, then put in sugar, then ice - you just did it on a smaller scale than most do :)
