This week's episode of...
I AM DUMB AS A STUMP !!
First the Sampler:
Here is a not-so-good picture of what it looks like now. Its folded up and hanging over a chair, but you can see how long it is and what the new stitches look like with the rest of it. The newest part is at the top.
Here's a closer look. At the top are two rows of hdc, then the Catherine's Wheel stitch, several rows of hdc, another strip if bobbles with DCs in the background, several rows of the Ribbon Afghan stitch. I think that's it since you last saw it. This picture is awful. You can see it looks better in the first photo.
I pulled a good one yesterday, y'all. I swear. I know I've told you this before, but I should not be allowed in the kitchen anymore!
I'm going to write this so it's easy to read...
1. I saw a recipe on the Web for a chicken kabob recipe by Ashanti. You know, Ashanti, the singer?
2. I asked The Captain to run to the store and get us some kabob meat. He likes steak and I like chicken.
3. I happened to have one of the ingredients for the marinade, Sazon. See picture below. Buy it in the Mexican Foods aisle at your grocery store. It makes everything orange, including your hands, so be sure and wash up immediately so it doesn't stain.
See my chicken kabobs marinating away? Don't they look good? You sprinkle the meat with a dry spice combination, and then you marinade it in Vinegar mixed with the Sazon seasoning for about an hour before grilling. There's pineapple for the kabobs too, but I had that separately because he bought the kabobs already put together. My mouth was so ready for some of this.
So he gets the grill ready and comes for the kabobs. As he's taking the chicken ones out to the grill, he stopped and said, "Ew! That smells awful!"
I'm like, "What do you mean?" Alarm bells start going off in my head. It shouldn't smell bad. I didn't notice any smell at all when making it (which is weird because I have a great sense of smell).
"Are you sure you used Vinegar and not Ammonia? Ha-ha-ha. It smells like ammonia."
"OH MY GOD!" I ran to the pantry to see that I had, indeed, grabbed the wrong jug and made the marinade out of Ammonia instead of Vinegar!
What the hell is wrong with me?!
In my defense, these jugs do look similar! I just can't imagine why I wouldn't have smelled that ammonia immediately when I opened it and poured 1/3 cup of it into a bowl.
So in the garbage it went, and I pouted the rest of the afternoon. I'm dumb as a box of rocks, I tell you!
So who's coming over for dinner?
