The best cooking blunder yet
I had to share this funny incident, which happened in my house yesterday. I hate to say it (as I seem to moan about my husband a lot), but yet again it involved my husband.
For the first time in a long time, he decided to make himself some breakfast. As his culinary skills do not stretch further than cereal or toast, I was not holding my breath for him making a full English breakfast.
I watched him head into the kitchen and off he set on his venture to make himself a fantastic breakfast (This is what he was leading me to believe at the time). After pottering around I could smell what I believed to be toast and thought to myself well at least he is trying to make something edible.
After 10 minutes (Yes ten minutes), I decided to go see why he had not appeared with any food. I thought to myself something is not quite right, maybe he had made such a mess he was clearing up his mess.
When I walked into the kitchen, greeted by my husband smiling at me in what I would describe as a nervous look, actually a bit like a naughty schoolchild.
I could smell plastic or at least something burning, so I looked in the direction of the toaster and there were still slight remnants of smoke coming from it.
I asked my husband “I THOUGHT YOU WERE HAVING TOAST” he replied “NO BECAUSE IT TASTED LIKE MOBILE PHONE”. At first, I thought he must have been joking until he showed me the mobile phone he had burnt.
Apparently, he left a mobile on top of the toaster when he came home from work the night before. Unfortunately, he decided to force the toast into the toaster thinking, and I quote “I THOUGHT THE BREAD WAS A BIT WONKEY OR SOMETHING”. He had failed to notice that the mobile had fallen inside of the toaster and this was why his bread would not go in properly.
He stood by watching the toaster produce smoke thinking it was his toast burning but never thought to check if anything had fallen in.
As a punishment my husband had to clean the toaster out to remove all the bread crumbs and bits of mobile phone, when he did this we were amazed to find a melted bank card and one of his old pens. Oh yes, and the bankcard was his that he had lost a while ago and had me searching the house for.
Here is what a toasted mobile phone looks like!
I am debating whether to start him his own section on this blog for all the blunders he manages to make. Although he does do, some funny and frustrating things he is still a trier!
I thought I would share this with everyone because even now it makes me smile.
