My cooking tragedies
I was attempting to bake chicken for my in-laws. They had just driven from Florida to Maine, to stay for the summer. This baked chicken recipe was not rocket science, but on that day...well...you would've thought..
The menu was simple. Baked chicken, salad, & corn-on-the cob. In the middle of the craziness, I accidentally left the glass cutting board on top of the oven! Well, a burner must have been on, but i didn't realize it, and you can guess what happened next. The cutting board literally blew up, glass pieces shattered all over the kitchen, & into the oven where the chicken was baking!
So, that night we ate salad & the corn. My father in law insisted the chicken was fine, and that it was "glass free". We weren't chancing it.
We laugh about it today, and luckily I have learned not to put glass on top of an oven. My mother-in-laws advice, whenever I am at a crossroads on what to make is, "How about getting a rotisserie chicken?' I just smile & agree. :)
