  • trying to make caramel slice and forgetting to put the caramel in it


  • I made a slice and was in the process of putting In the pre-heated oven when one said toddler ran up beside me. In stopping the toddler and dropped the slice which scattered all over the floor. Then we decided to make a new one and cook it in a spring form tin which I had never used before. The bottom fell out and that lot went on the floor too. Of course little fingers and feet got to it first…..and scattered it, then somebody else let the dog in to clean up the mess before the floor. Except the dog decided that the fruit in it was not to her liking and pushed aside what she didn’t like. By the time the floor was thoroughly washed I decided I wasn’t making another attempt.

  • The only fail would be having to pluck the chicken we were having for Christmas lunch. Being a year where money was really tight, we decided to kill one of the chickens for lunch so we could have some meat. There was a chicken who was causing a lot of hassles with the children and in the chook pen with the chooks and ducks. So off with her head. Plucking her was getting to be a hard job as I had never done it before. I ended up skinning her and solved the problem. So we had a baked chicken skinless.
