I have a 100lb dobe/lab mix. She's eaten half a pot of spaghetti off the stove, leftover meatloaf after dh made himself a sandwich and left it on the counter, and a footlong Subway sandwich left on a side table when I ran out to the garage to help dh with something. Wait, I take that back, she didn't eat the whole thing, she left the lettuce and pickles!

LOL, What's with labs and a sweet tooth. My chocolate ate 4 doz butter tarts off the cupboard , less one that he couldn't reach, and he also ate half a cake that I had just finished decorating and that was due next morning for 8 AM (this was 10 PM). Had to send dh 40 km to town to the 24 hour grocery store for more ing. & stayed up all night rebaking & decorating. And then to top it all off the lady I made the cake for called me the next day to say that her dog (also a lab) had eaten one end of the cake. She just cut off the chewed part & served it anyway (yeeew).

This is too funny! Love it. Last week I went to make RI, and put two bags of PS in, instead of one. I couldnt figure out why my new mixer wasnt working. Oh it wasnt the mixer it was the user...

But, it turned out kind of like a rolled buttercream...

Too funny!! I'm glad I'm not the only one. My store is with brownies. I was aking brownies for my grand daughter. I mixed everything as usual and then added my chopped pecans...no problem..When they came out of the oven my husband wanted to know what was wrong with them....I had made them without wearing my glasses and had not realized the peacns were not shelled just cracked. The brownies were full of shells. What makes this even funnier is that my grand daughter was watching me and didn't say a word. I ask her about it and her response was she didn't want to hurt my feelings LOL

Funny thread!

When I was pregnant with my second I made a pecan pie to take to friends for dinner. I walked in with it and they asked me what kind of pie I made and I looked at them funny (?) thinking who doesn't recognize a pecan pie. I told them its pecan and they said "I don't think I have ever seen a top crust on pecan pie before". It was at that moment that I realized I put the top crust on the darn thing! I blamed the pregnancy. icon_redface.gif

This thread seems to be switching back and forth and I'm loving it all! I used to have a Doberman who goes down in my family's history for being a garbage gut. Forget the roasts and chops pilfered from off the counter, the topper was his OPENING the refrigerator door and finishing off the three pumpkin pies waiting for delivery to friends that evening. The whole kitchen floor was so covered with overlapping pumpkin paw prints that I almost wish I could have laminated the design. Quite frankly, it was attractive!

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

Too funny! icon_smile.gif Glad I'm not alone...

Last week, I got started late (as usual!) icon_rolleyes.gif making my mom's birthday cheesecake. I don't make cheesecakes too often, so I always second- (and third-) guess myself as to whether it's really done...so after the allotted time, I thought it wasn't done...thought I set the timer for 10 min, and sat down...(it was midnight) I FELL ASLEEP and woke up at 2:30 am to DH asleep on the floor, and the smell of burned cheesecake!!! icon_eek.gificon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gif Ewww.......and did I mention that was the night we got the HUGE blizzard? icon_confused.gif So running to the store for replacement ingredients or even a frozen one was out of the question...Luckily I had enough stuff in the house to fudge a mini version the next morning!

Several years ago, I was mixing a cake w/ my olf handheld Sunbeam mixer. The cord was loose at the mixer end and kept coming out. It came out and fell into the cake mix. I pulled it out and stood there w/ mixer (which I couldn't put down) in one hand and the cord w/ icing on the tip in the other hand trying to figure out how to get the icing off. Now, mind you, the other end of the cord was still plugged in. So genius decided to lick the icing off. Can anyone say sparks shooting out?????

LOL! Don't lick your mixer silly! =)
My schnauzer pug has destroyed many cakes, and kept eating roses I was making when I'd run for a potty break. Could not figure out at first what was happening! The worst was when I put a 1 lb block of butter on my patio table to soften. I forgot it, but she didn't! 1/2 pound eaten and as my husband described it "butter in, butter out" I bet she'd do it again though!

Oh dang! I nearly choked on my girl scout cookie.

That story reminded me of the time I mixed my whole hand. I was using a hand-held mixer. It was plugged in (big mistake). I took the beaters out of the drawer and put them in with the back of the mixer against my stomach. As I pushed the beaters in with my left hand, the "on" button got pushed in by my stomach. The mixer started and my left hand went up between the beaters. I had to eject the beaters to get my hand out. What can we learn here, kids? Put the beaters in the mixer BEFORE you plug it in! thumbsdown.gif

Ahhhh!!!! I poured an entire pot of spaghetti down the sink once, forgetting to put the strainer down first. My husband was looking at me like I was an idiot...

Mixer - OUCH. I'm always so scared of that when my lo tries to watch the KA run.

When I was first married, I learned that freezer strength Ziploc bags don't like hot from the stove meatballs in tomato sauce. Completely melted. Try cleaning that from between the stove and countertop.
