absentminded kitchen disasters

I am so glad to see that many others forget about their hard boiled eggs!
I have been alerted many times by the loud popping in the kitchen and each time, I can't believe That I have done it again!

But probably the weirdest kitchen mishap was when I was grading Spanish exams. I was sitting at the table with a messy pile of papers and books, when a finicky friend dropped by. I grabbed all the papers and threw them into the oven, to neaten up...then I forgot that they were there. The oven was not turned on, but by the time I remembered my papers, the heat of the pilot light had curled and browned each and every exam. I had a hard time explaining that one to my students!

I always make____for the holidays, because my Grandma did

The tradition in our family was to have a ham and home made macaroni and cheese on Christmas Eve at my grandparents' house. When I got married and moved to Mexico, I continued the tradition. One day someone asked me what the significance was of this dinner. I called my aunt back home in Connecticut. The answer? "Your grandparents used to invite everyone back to supper after the church Christmas Eve Carol Sing. It was the easiest thing to make for a crowd!" and yup, we still do ham and mac cheese!
