Seriously. What is wrong with me that I cannot pay attention long enough to keep my food from burning. It’s not HARD to stand there; barely takes any energy. I get distracted and think that if I’m doing one thing at a time how efficient I’ll be getting TWO things done! Except then I burn my bread. Who just heard, “My biscuits are burning, my biscuits are burning!” in their head?
Sometimes I’ll buy two loaves of French bread that we’ll bake with garlic butter because we know I’ll burn one and we’ll save the other. I’ve tossed charred asparagus. That hurts the worst because they’re ‘spensive!
Doesn’t this look lovely? :D
But then this happens to the other side when I’m not looking. It’s like a ninja snuck into my kitchen (they ARE very sneaky, those ninjas) and turned up the burner while I had my back turned (I think I was filling the paper towel dispenser… you know, something imperative that I do at that very moment.)
My other quirk with grilled cheese? Even though I use my mouth as a weapon, it’s very sensitive on the inside. Hot cocoa to me is better when it’s warm cocoa, pizza straight out of the fridge is my preference, sometimes I even eat leftovers without warming them up for fear that one corner piece that I shove in my mouth first is on fire. Having to baby a burnt mouth for a few days while I avoid eating anything with flavor, texture, or density and suck on yogurt (squirm). So I do this…
…and eat it with a fork. That way I don’t have to bite it and rub the roof of my mouth.
Yes, I AM that tender. All over the place. Inside and out. So be careful. Tread lightly :D
P.S. Did you also noticed that I cut off the outer crust BEFORE I cook it? Oh yes I DO! It’s just barely a sliver that I get rid of then I don’t have to eat around the outside edge first then savor the inner softness. I get to savor from outside in! And I also know I should stick with Cravings Bistro for my Gourmet Grilled Cheese needs. Sigh.
