    We still tease my mother about the time she discovered cumin and cooked everything with it for four years with it. Like, even pancakes. We call it the time of enchiladas.

    It was good, just everything tasted like enchiladas. Coulda been worse.

    My mom once cut my ear a little while cutting my hair when i was like 4. I’m 33 and I still remember her the time she almost cut my ear off.

      Memory is funny like that, it was probably the scariest thing you had experienced in your life at the time!

    When I was 8 my mother slammed my finger in the bed of a pickup truck. It locked and she didn’t have the keys on her.

    I still bring it up 25 years later.

      Legit though. I got my finger slammed in the car door but luckily it didn’t lock like that. I could see bone. Even theoretical, thinking about the door locking makes me panic a bit.

      I was about the same age when my mom got my finger in the car door. We were getting ice cream and my dad sent be from the window of the shop to go deliver moms to her. The door closed on it, but thankfully didn’t lock. I just had to knock on the door with my other hand (she was inside) to get her to open it.

      Very painful but no permanent injury.

      Ever since, when I’ve been in a similar situation, I either pass through the open window or I actually step into the swing path of the door.

    Something like 20 years ago, my dad made meatloaf and cooked ketchup into it, since we always coated it in ketchup anyway. Problem was it was that green colored ketchup that was popular then. The result: sickly green ass lookin meatloaf no one would touch.

    I never let him forget about it.

      This is an old post, and sometimes little kids do remember being a baby. My kid is 6 now and losing his baby memories but he used to tell me he wants to go back to certain places we went to “before (he) could talk” which started at 2. He described going on a boat to an island, something he had literally only ever done one time as a baby and we didn’t have any photos of. And lots of other things, that’s just an example. He doesn’t remember it now but he did when he was 4.5.

    Well, my mom once managed to burn taco shells to the point where we had to air out the house. It’s been 20 years and we still joke about it :D

      I think you refer to the movie “Chef” where the kid tried to serve a burned Cubano (Cuban sandwich)?

      I burned like 6 grilled cheeses the other day… Fuck induction stoves man. Damned thing goes from barely warm to nuclear reactor if you blink at it the wrong way.

        If you’re not used to cooking with induction it’s a bit of a learning curve. It gets warm very quickly so your timings are different. I burnt a ton of food learning to cook with induction, but once you get the hang of it, it’s super convenient.

          I think I need some cast iron or something, the element cycle on and off, and we got aluminum pans. I got a cast iron griddle that spans two of the like elements in back and it works perfect.
