Today for Fess-up Friday we’re going to talk about kitchen disasters. My biggest disaster had to do with an egg. A hard-boiled egg. I made several in a pot of water for my kids and I. When I peeled the first egg I realized it wasn’t quite done. I’d heard that you shouldn’t put eggs in the shell in a microwave but I figured if I peeled half of the egg first it wouldn’t build up pressure (isn’t that why you don’t put eggs in the microwave?)
I was so very, very wrong. After about 15 seconds the egg exploded. And I don’t just mean it popped and fizzled. It was like an egg bomb went off. The egg itself was so pulverized that there were microscopic pieces of egg everywhere. It also blew the microwave door open with such force that one set of hinges was ripped off.
I had to replace the microwave.
Please learn from my idiocy.
What’s your biggest kitchen disaster? Was it a bad meal or are you ignorant like me when it comes to equipment? It’s time to fess up!
