New culinary low [Dec. 17th, 2011|03:56 pm]
Richard Clegg
Today I reached a new low by failing to cook a Fray Bentos "put it in the oven in the tin and that's it" pie. For some reason the instruction to remove the lid before cooking had an "on no account" added to it. I remembered to open the tin but then left the lid on. This meant that the flaky pastry (the only really nice bit) welded itself to the lid. Fortunately, the heated metal disk with razor-sharp edges cauterised the wound it caused -- which is handy... I guess. I'll eat out tonight. It's safest.

This is what LJ is lacking : posts entertainingly detailing staggering incompetence (embarrassing injuries optional, but greatly appreciated) :-p

I'll admit to even worse fiascos - but at least they have all occurred as a consequence of vodka...

I really think anything which involves fray bentos and vodka has strayed across acceptable realms.
