My cooking tragedies
One time during a hurricane in college, we lost power and I (conveniently) had burgers thawed in no time. I also had some bacon. I decided, along with my friends, that the hurricane wasn't that bad, and that we could start the grill up and get to cooking! We were all starving and really looking forward to eating and having something to do. Well, just as we turned on the grill and put the burgers and bacon on the grill (otherwise it would have gone bad!) it seemed like the hurricane picked up 10 fold! And to top it all off, high winds aren't exactly great when bacon grease hits flames. So we had an out of control fire on our grill (thankfully the lid was closed) and high winds to blow flames everywhere when you tried to open the lid. We had to use a fire extinguisher to put out the fire. So not only were we without power, we also lost our meal. It was quite the fun experience though! I'm sure none of us will ever forget that!
