Have you ever done this:
Made yourself a cup of coffee, then added apple juice instead of cream? Well that is not really a blind moment, just a overwhelmed blunder. The apple juice was between the coffee cup and the Keurig, while the cream was in the fridge!
Here is another:
Have you made meatloaf using cocoa powder instead of breadcrumbs? I have! By the way, it was delicious!
How did I accomplish this feat? Well, I was cutting up an onion, and started to cry, onions do that as you know. So I closed my eyes and used my sense of touch to finish cutting the mean ol’ onion. I am skilled at cutting visually or tactically, no problems! After scrapping the diced onion into the bowl with the beef, egg, ketchup, mustard and some other secret ingredients, I reached up to the cupboard directly above and took the “breadcrumbs” out, removed the lid and poured a large dumping into the bowl. Oh, I forgot to tell you: My eyes were still closed due to the mean ol’ onion making me cry!
So, after I grabbed a towel to wipe my eyes clean of tears. I was about to mash my meatloaf together when I noticed the “breadcrumbs” did not have the right consistency! That was when I noticed the Cocoa container was open and the breadcrumb container, which are the same size, but on different shelves, was still in the cupboard!
Yes, I did grab the breadcrumbs, upend the container into the bowl and hope that it overpowers the chocolatey taste! It did!
99% of my meatloaves always turn out great and my kids always love it! Haven’t made one in a long time that did not stick around for leftovers!
