Don't Even Ask ...

Hi. My name is Annette, and I am a complete and utter klutz. I admit it openly ... I display this frequently. It is not everyone that can miss the top stair and flip head-over-heels down a flight of stairs and slap on a few band-aids and still make it to Baccalaureate on time or who can slip and slide down a staircase at church, breaking their tailbone - and still sing in the Praise and Worship team at church, after all ... is it? Yes, I am quite the accomplished klutz.

My latest brush with my hidden talent occurred last week. I had quite a revelation while in the kitchen. I decided that while making rice, that I could saute the onion and garlic in the rice cooker before adding the rice and the chicken broth. It worked splendidly ... and I have the scars to prove it!

After I got done making supper, I brought a beautifully garnished plate into my husband's office for him to enjoy... and then I asked him for the Silvadine. Silvadine is ointment used to treat burns. Matt was quite puzzled how I had managed to burn the top of my left foot while making supper that evening. I never did quite tell him the entire story. He is still baffled!

What happened? I told my dear husband, "Don't even ask..." But, for you - my friends, I will treat you with the rest of the story ... as a cautionary tale: When you are sauteing onion and garlic in a rice cooker - there is a significant amount of condensation on the lid. Never under any circumstances, lift the lid where that condensation can drip off and hit the top of your foot ~through heavy winter socks, I might add!

I hope that you enjoy a good laugh ... lessons learned!

I've done that same thing. And, I also some how missed the colander when I was draining noodles and dumped most of the boiling water on my foot. AND, just last night, I actually bruised myself with a milk carton. So, don't feel bad. You're not the only one.

Oh my goodness! I hope your foot heals! I am such a klutz, too. And I can totally relate to this. The same happens to me with pots and pans.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! =)

p.s. your boys are ADORABLE!
