Warning: This post contains one of my most embarrassing moments E-V-E-R, what I learned from it, and prizes for you at the end!
At the least this post will give you some tips on what NOT to do as you prepare the annual feast for your friends and family. At best, you may get a chuckle out of it and in the long run, it may save you some dough, not having to buy new appliances. :)
I am a disaster in the kitchen. My bad reputation started when I caught the home-ec kitchen on fire my senior year of high school, evacuating the entire building during final exams and continues today.
It was my first Thanksgiving as a bride to be to my husband of 16 years. I wanted to impress my soon to be mother-in-law by playing "Becky home-ec-y" and hosting a fabulous Thanksgiving at my apartment. I spent about half of my monthly grocery budget buying all the fixings I thought were important and then lugged them up to my third floor apartment, which was looking pretty spiffy with my fall decorations and new home-made table cloth with a hot-glued hem.
I thought I was ready to go bright and early on Thanksgiving day, but I freaked when I realized that the turkey didn't fit in my apartment sized oven. A frantic call to my fiance resulted in a perfect solution of cooking it on the grill instead.
Unfortunately, that was just the start of my Thanksgiving challenges.
What I've learned from my Thanksgiving blunders:
