Food Medusa

Yesterday, I was rummaging through the refrigerator to find something to make for dinner. That's when I spotted some tuna steaks. I pulled those things out and started to find a pan. Just then my husband came in the kitchen. "Woman!" he bellowed. "Stay away from the tuna!" "Why?" I asked. "Because you'll destroy them!" "Will not!" I said, getting defensive. "Will, too!" he said. "Don't even look at them. They'll turn to stone!" "What are you talking about?" "You're the food medusa. And you're not going to kill these expensive tuna steaks!" Apparently he was referring to the time I baked the Easter ham with the wrapper still on it. (And the last time I overcooked his fancy filets.) All right. Fine. I'll leave the darn tuna steaks alone. But he's not getting one teeny tiny piece of the chocolate cake I'm baking!

  2. Does that mean your husband fixed the whole meal, or just the tuna steaks?

    I left the plastic circle thingy in the spiral ham one time. And I've left the neck and that paper sack of innards in the turkey before.

    I've even burnt water! Now that is a story for another time. : )

    1. Just the tuna steaks. Hey, you sound just like me when it comes to cooking. Burning water? Hmmm. I think you've got me on that one!

  3. Let him cook as much as he wants. I'm sure the cake is much more satisfying.

    1. He had a great time cooking that thing. And he was very proud of himself, because it turned out well.

  7. I don't know, Sherry, I'm pretty particular about tuna steaks, too. I just like them to see the pan - not develop a lasting relationship with it! I might have to side with the hubs. But just this once... (-:
