Of all the stupid

Soda bread, super easy right? Apparently I'm the only one with so little intelligence that I can screw it up. Instead of using baking soda, I used baking powder 'cause I didn't read the canister correctly. Now I have two bread looking bricks cooling in my kitchen. I'm sure I'll laugh about this tomorrow.

I once used corn syrup instead of vegetable oil in a cake. My family tried to eat it and pretend it was delicious but it just wasn't.

I went to put soy sauce on beef and broccoli...I grabbed the guava sauce bottle instead (they look identical).

Yeah, not tasty AT ALL.

Re: Of all the stupid

I love the croûton idea as well, but they are so hard I can't cut into them at all. I was think of getting a hammer and turning it into bread crumbs; just not sure if it's worth the effort.

Re: Of all the stupid

Salt instead of sugar, plain flour instead of self rising flour, Hot chilli powder instead of paprika (that one tasted ok, but DAMN! it burned. And made my dad sweat and swear a whole lot), sweet vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream. You name it, I've done it. Ususally while trying to do too many things at once while sleep deprived. My sister once made a batch of cupcakes, but used fly-spray instead of canola oil spray to grease the trays (both homebrand in similar generic looking canisters).

Re: Of all the stupid

When my mom first attempted a Thanksgiving turkey she caked the inside with salt, just like she watched her own mother do but she never paid attention to the part where her mother rinsed the cavity out after. The turkey was pretty much salt all the way through.
She somehow made macaroni and cheese into a brick.
I tried to learn from her mistakes but Im sure I've made a few!
