Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen...

I'm sure you've heard the saying, "Too many cooks in the kitchen spoil the broth. In this case for me it was "Too much salsa in the blender dirty's the clean kitchen." Everyone has those days where it would just be better off if they didn't set foot in the kitchen. This evening that was so true of me. I thought it would be a nice surprise for Tim when he got home if I had some homemade salsa with chicken tacos. It was the perfect plan until...I decided to use too high of a speed to blend the salsa and neglected to put the lid on top. I'm sure it's not very hard to imagine the disaster that followed soon after. Salsa quite literally went everywhere! It got on me, the counters, the linolium, the carpet...I don't know if it got on Lucky cause I'm sure if it did she happily licked it off. It reminded me of a horror movie when you can see it all happening as if in slow motion and yet there is absolutely nothing you can do to stop it. I'm pretty sure it took me longer to clean up the mess than it did for me to chop everything up and make it. Here's a sample of the mess that ensued...

I didn't take a picture of the floor, but you get the idea.


  1. I sooooo have been there too many times! :)
    I had a cheesecake explode (ask Daniel and Stephanie about that one), and once left eggs on the stove to boil.....they all exploded. That was a stinky mess!

    Miss you! Janneh
