A hot mess

While I had some flavorful goodness cookin up in my precious crockpot, I thought I’d really show off and make a few healthy and tasty sides of veggies.  The asparagus with olive oil & grated cheese was a success.  My spinach and mushroom sautee, mmmmm not so much.  It was a new pan that apparently get reeeally hot, reeeeeally quickly. 

Here’s me (thinkin I’m Julia frikkin Child) tossing garlic into the pan with olive oil.

Cut to 2 seconds later….BURNT!  UGH!  I quickly dumped the black garlic and tainted oil down the drain. Flustered, I put the pan down to let it cool off.  Um, yeah, not a great idea!

 Yeah. Reeeeal smooth Min. 

 My dad jokes with my mom that he knows dinner is ready when the smoke alarm goes off.  I guess the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree!  Ahhh, the adventures of cooking!  We got a good laugh out of it anyway.
