Kitchen Duty

This is a post about people who cannot cook.
aka me.
My mom revised the chore chart, and my chore on Monday was to help with supper. We were making homemade pizza. She had already started on the pizzas, so she asked me to make a scrambled egg for my sis Mary. So immediately I started, cracking and beating the egg, spraying the frying pan, and dumping the liquid in. I stood there, spatula in hand, occasionally touching the egg to see if it had hardened at all. After a few pokes, I began to wonder if I had forgotten how long it took to cook scrambled eggs, or if something was wrong. Then, I saw it. My runny egg was on the front burner. And the smoking-almost-on-fire towel was on the back... Whoops!! Maybe I should spend a little more time studying the little symbols next to the burner nobs?
BTW, have any of you smelled burnt dish towel?
What are your kitchen experiences?

LOL!!!!!! You told me that story before, I remember! Remember when I told you about my dad burning a potato chip bag??? :P He turned on the wrong burner and wondered why his soup wasn't boiling, then saw the bag on fire! We had to put the chips in a whole new bag! ;D

Yes, I remember!!!! LOL I'm surprised the chips didn't burn up! Hehe, that must have been a little scary (but then super funny afterwards, LOL) :D

Trinka said...

Lol! :) Yes, I actually HAVE smelled burnt towel before... :) We were at my grandma's house and we were making dinner. There was a pot on the stove with a lid on. In order to check the food inside of it {because the pot lid was super hot!} she used a towel to lift it...but she left the towel there. It started to burn and actually had a little flame on it before I saw it and quickly got it off there and into the sink! :)
And does your sister not like pizza?

Kathryn said...

Haha, it doesn't smell good, does it?!
Oh my!! Go Trinka!! I probably would have just stood there and screamed at the towel with the little flame in it... LOL
Mary is only 5, and she is the pickiest eater I know. She has a big sweet tooth, but won't each much of anything else!! She NEVER eats what we do. Always an egg with yogurt, or a quesedilla (I can't figure out how to spell this!!) or something like that. She is the baby :-)

Hi Kathryn. Thank you for following my blog.

Hi, Katherine (what a Lovely name!!! hehe)
I sorta love cooking! I just don't do it much. Oh, yes I have burned myself many times!!! Once me and my sister Sarah (I think you follow her blog) were home alone mom told us NOT to touch the biscuit sheet because it was hot. Guess who touched it while she was waving her hands talking? Me!!! It really hurt. Another time I burned three of my fingers because I wrapped my hand around the curling iron barrel... I didn't know it was on... That REALLY hurt!!!
You have a nice weekend too!!

Hi Kathryn!

Lol! I haven't smelled burnt towel, but I have burned myself a few times. I know that feeling! :P Oh and those curling irons and straighteners...they're the worst! :)

God bless you!
Joy :)

Jess Leigh said...

Hahaha LOL! I'm not much of a cook either

Kathryn said...

Haha, it doesn't smell nice :-)
Burning yourself is not fun!!! And you are so right, the curling irons and straightners are the worst. I burnt myself with a curling iron when I wasn't even using it!! My sister was curling her hair in the bathroom, and I was brushing my teeth and I hit it I guess! That hurt!!
