Out of the Blue

Well, yesterday was our first grilling mishap of the season, though I am not to blame, so my record remains so far unblemished. The chicken thigh fillets I was going to cook turned out to be startlingly rancid. These were actually vacuum sealed in plastic, which seems like it would help prevent such a mishap, but when I cut open the package it immediately filled the kitchen with the most horrifying odor. I didn't actually think you could generate that much stench from a one pound package of chicken meat, but it was a pretty close call that we were able to dispose of this without anyone actually upchucking.

Doesn't count as a grilling mishap. Was still in the house so it's a "food prep" mishap. Goes right along with missing steaks and smiling dogs.

Or in the case I last remember:
"Missing 5 pounds of lasagna and one smiling yellow Lab"

Poor thing was in agony.
