Today is the cut off date for participation in our 30 Day Challenge. Of course anyone is always free to answer the questions on their own and on their own blog as long as Cherlyn and I are given credit (links) with this particular grouping of question. What I mean by cut off is I will no longer be updating the participant list with additional names. In fact if you are participating and have less than four total posts on this, the ninth day of the challenge I will be removing you name from the list.
It is very time consuming to try to visit the 28 participating blogs everyday only to find no new posts for that day. I apologize if you feel this is unfair but I must do what I feel is best for the majority of participants. Thank you.
My worst cooking disaster involved _____________ and this person/these people…
A turkey and most of my family members. It was a stupid and yet careless mistake. It is a mistake I hear all the time though. I cooked the turkey with the plastic giblet bag still inside of the turkey and we ate it anyway.
I didn’t know about all the harmful chemicals that could have or did get into the turkey meat from the heating of the plastic bag. I’m even embarrassed mentioning it again. I could have poisoned my family and not know it. Who knows if there are any residual effects from those chemicals?
I did not hide the fact that I did something so moronic but everyone thought it was still okay to eat, so we did. Now I know better. I don’t remember if it was Thanksgiving or not, but it was a big deal get together. I was determined to have a moist and delicious turkey. I think it might have been my first time cooking turkey. I used champagne to baste it with and put loads of butter underneath the turkey skin. Seasoned well with Adobo seasoning and tarragon. It did taste good and was super moist. It was just the addition of the unnatural chemicals that added more to the meal than anyone expected.
