Why I hate to cook…
So as you might or might not know I am not a very good cook. You might also know (or not) that I am one of the biggest klutz, well now lets put those two things together and here is what you come up with…
I decided to make come calzones for dinner (that was my first mistake SOOOO don’t have the patients to roll out that much dough!). I found a great recipe on, where else, Pinterest. I was feeling adventuresome and thought to myself I can do those, really how hard can they be to make. HA!! I really gotta stop listening to my adventurous side!
I started with getting all the ingredients together. I got out a bowl and the flour. Well apparently the door to the cabinet did not close completely and when I wasn’t paying attention I hit my elbow JUST right. I hit my funny bone so hard that it wasn’t funny. WOW! Didn’t realize I could hit something that hard so that it was still tingling 2 minutes later.
So I licked my wound and went on with making the calzones. The flour I wanted to use was Whole wheat (second mistake, way more dense! Does not kneed NEARLY as easy as white bread). The dough just did not turn out right on the mixer so I took it out and tried to kneed it by hand. The directions said it will yield 6-8 calzones. HA!! Yeah right! I was lucky to get 3 blobs to roll out.
Started to roll out the blobs of dough. Some how (and I have yet to figure this out) I sat on my knee wrong. As I was rolling out the dough I moved just right and some how hurt my knee. Now when I say hurt my knee I don’t me just a little stumble and bump. Somehow in all my glory I managed to hurt my knee bad enough that I could hardly walk on it the rest of the night and I have a bruise the size of a golf ball on my leg. All from rolling out some dough.
By this time I was determined to get these done but had to call in reinforcments. My hubby came and rolled out the dough for me.
In the end we cooked and ate them but they were awful. It was the principal of the matter at that point! I made something dang it we are GOING to eat it! My family must love me! They both ate it and my son said it tasted good! OH how I love that boy!
Tell me your funny story! I would love to hear some!
