Don't Cry Over Spilled Soup

About mid week (last week) I decided that I could take responsibility for our evening meal and all went well. I only prepared simple things that didn't take much work and it kept us from starving. This afternoon I was feeling spunky. The cleaning lady had just left and I had a clean from top to bottom kitchen to work in. There is where this story begins - -

Feeling that I am ready to take over the world, I made a cherry cobbler. It came out of the oven looking almost decent. Next I began working on a recipe that I've been wanting to make for several weeks. There are several steps to this dish but none are complicated. Without further ado let me ask a question. Does anyone out there know just how far a can of mushroom soup mixed with half a can of hot water can spread when it's dropped? It can cover a kitchen chair (with turned legs), a kitchen table leg (turned leg, too), the side of the refrig, at least half of the newly cleaned floor, and one whole leg of your jeans. I hurried to clean the mess before Harry saw it. I didn't want him to think I couldn't manage dinner. Lucky for me I had more mushroom soup and the dish is now baking. I threw the recipe in the trash. Even if it's wonderful I'll never make it again. What an evening!! Old farts - like me - should never feel spunky.

Other than the above it's been a good day. Take a deep breath, relax and enjoy your evening.

I hate it when that happens!You can manage dinner. That was just a fluke.

Well, you are having MY kind of day now...ugh. That certainly puts a damper on spunk.

Have a happy, Mary. Hugs. :)

Oh that reminds me of the time I dropped a can of soda in the kitchen and it squirted all over the place. It was 11:00 PM and I was putting soda in the refrigerator for the next day.
What a sticky mess!

We've all done this at one time or another....some of us more than once. Ahem.

Uh huh. Been there. With newly mixed jello in the refrigerator. It spreads everywhere and gels immediately. With other stuff. Hopefully you threw out the recipe because it just wasn't that good. I bet that never happens with the soup mix again. I'm glad that doing all the cleaning didn't set you back in your road to healing.

OH NO! LOL. I've done that, only with paint, fortunately it was outside, but it was a new gallon and I just took my hands and scooped that paint up best I could and put it back in the bucket. I know you couldn't do that with the food off the floor.
