Blueberries on the Ceiling: Hiliarious Stories of Kitchen Mishaps

This is my second attempt at a food blogging event (I tried “Make Martha Cringe” a while back but only got one entry! boo hoo…) and I think this one might be a little bit easier to participate in.

“Blueberries on the Ceiling” is your chance to write about your most disatrous (and hopefully hilarious) kitchen mishap. As someone who cooks a lot, I love telling kitchen horror stories and then hearing what went wrong in other kitchens as well. It makes us all feel more human, dontcha think? I mean, no one’s perfect, and as far as I’m concerned, if we’re going to be making mistakes, we should take the opportunity to laugh at them! Did you set the top of a crisp on fire and then dump a gallon of water into your broiler to put it out? Maybe you accidentally dumped an entire cup and a half of sea salt into an otherwise perfect mushroom pasta minutes before company arrived. Oh wait, that was me…. ehhhh… Anyway, I’m sure you’ve done something similarly ridiculous, so fess up!

Here’s how you participate:

  1. Write a short story about something hilarious and disastrous that happened in your kitchen. The length of the post doesn’t matter, but see if you can include a somewhat relevant picture so people have something colorful to look at while reading your post.
  2. Post your story between now and Sunday, June 15, and please include a link back to this post so that other people can read about the event!
  3. Send me the link to your post so that I can compile a list of all the entries and pick a winner!  You can either put the the link in the comments, or email me at caitlin DOT Larussa AT gmail DOT com.

EDIT:  There will be a prize!!!  The person who submits the story of the most ridiculous and hilarious kitchen disaster will win one of my favorite books about a certain someone’s adventures in many kitchens.  So send in those stories!
