Friday Fails – Kitchen Disasters


You are NOT allowed to laugh at me! Promise? Umkay.

This week I’ve had two messy fails in the kitchen. I think I’m the world’s worst klutz all the time especially this week!  Ha!

I was fixing supper on Monday night and pulled something (I don’t remember what it was) out of the refrigerator and somehow the salsa jar tipped over.  The lid was on, but obviously it wasn’t on very well!  What a mess!


Just overlook the rest of the refrigerator, okay?! {blush}

On Tuesday morning, I decided to make oatmeal for Ridley.  My unexperienced-oatmeal-making-self apparently set the microwave on way-too-long!  Just imagine my shock when I opened the door!!!

Ernie laughed at me laughing.  He didn’t think it could possibly be that bad.  When he saw this fail….he rolled his eyes and laughed too.  This is called “boiled over oatmeal.”  Gourmet to be sure. Ha!


I’m so thankful that I had napkins on the turntable.  It made cleaning up this fail quite easy!

    I burnt hard boiled eggs this week – all 6 of them. forgot I was boiling them – kept hearing a pop pop…. thought the dog was playing with something – smelled smoke – the popping was the eggs attaching themselves to the ceiling… geez – what a mess!

    Love to you

      Wow. You totally made me laugh. The mental image is just too funny! 😉 When I was an early teen, I made broccoli cheese soup and as I carried it to the table the huge pot slipped out of my hand and broccoli cheese soup went EVERYWHERE! Even on the ceiling!! What a mess that was!

    I had this happen with oatmeal SO MANY TIMES that I GAVE UP making it in the microwave. Seriously — GAVE UP! I make it on the stove top now. It’s less quick but ensures that I don’t walk away leaving the explosion to clean up later — is that not a sticky, gooey mess?

    I wanted to use a large can to make a 3D cake of a tank train last year. The can had crushed tomatoes in it. I decided that we’d eat them for dinner and as I was pouring them into the pan, the can slipped out of my hand! Wow – science was about splash patterns that day! Of course, I had just opened the dishwasher – all clean! Not anymore! I had to rewash them and then find where all the tomatoes had splashed – amazing how far it goes! The cake turned out pretty neat though!

      That’s so awesome! Last night I was making pizza and I picked up the sauce jar to shake it up a bit and it slipped out of my fingers. I almost had a heart attack when the jar headed toward the floor. Thankfully it hit the counter and didn’t break. Miracle of miracles! :)

    This is hilarious & I can totally relate!! Microwave messes happen at my house alot. The latest event was yesterday when my 7 yr old made caramel popcorn in the microwave — he didn’t know you were supposed to put the caramel on it after it was popped — Huge Mess!

    I know this is sad, but I’m thrilled with the idea to put napkins underneath:) That tip would’ve saved me lots of time over the years!!

    Right there with ya. The oatmeal thing – crazy how it does that. (Speaking of which…and science experiments Alyssa, have you ever put Ivory soap in the microwave? Pretty cool.) Anyway, I made two loaves of bread the other day, put them in the oven, turned on the timer, turned off the timer when it went off but DID NOT REMOVE the bread. Threw ’em away. And then did the very same thing about two days later. It was lovely.

    I hate that when that happens.

    My husband won’t let me post my Friday fail on my website this week so I’ll share it with you here. It’s a sad and not funny one. I let me son hold his toothbrush in the bathtub last night and he stood up and fell on it. It hit the outside of his cheek. It really freaked me out, what if it had hit his eye or something. At first I thought it hit the inside of his mouth, but it didn’t. I’m resolved to not let my son have anything pointy that he could fall on. He still falls quite a bit when he walks so this is especially important now. I hate learning lessons the hard way, and I’m sorry my son will have a bruise from it. :(

      Girl, that is scary!! When I was little I had a toothbrush and was running through the house. Of course, I fell and the toothbrush hit the back of my throat and made it bleed. I’m sure it was a really scary moment for my parents, but I’m glad I don’t remember! :) I know it makes your mommy heart hurt. I look forward to seeing you link up next week…with a much less scary fail!

    I had a HUGE fail today. I was making your pizza dough recipe x 3 After getting both my wet and dry ingredients together, I took one more look at the recipe to double check. For some reason I looked at the measurement for the flour and thought it was for the water. So thinking I needed more water, I calculated home much more I needed because I was tripling the recipe. What I ended up with was dough soup.
    Not wanting to lose all of my ingredients, I quickly set my daughter up watching Elmo (her dad was there, I didn’t leave her alone) and I quickly ran to Publix for more yeast. In order to account for all the extra water I’d added, I ended up multiplying the recipe by 8. Yes, EIGHT! I am stocked on pizza dough for a while. This was my first time working with yeast and making my own pizza dough. Just cooked one and it turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!

    Myra, Very cute linky. I’ll have to keep it in mind. I could have posted this week, because I did about the same thing you did. My kids wanted hot choclate after playing in the snow. I thought I’d go all out and make the real stuff with milk and homemade cocoa, but I was doing 50 things at once, so I put it in the teapot.

    Do you know what happens to milk in a teapot? It doesn’t whistle when it’s done. The lid shot up, the pour cap hit the fridge, and milk began spraying in the air all over the cabinets, floors, me, and everywhere. It was dramatic! And my kids loved it… turkeys :)
