This morning I had a doctor's appointment, so I took a few minutes to clean my small appliances and canisters on the kitchen counter. It was a small job, one I could easily finish before I had to leave. Everything looked so good when I left, so shiny and clean!
It stayed that way till I cooked supper. I am diabetic, so I decided to try the Dinner Diva's recipe for FauxTayToes. You steam cauliflower till it's soft, then mix in cream cheese, butter, salt and pepper till it's the consistency of mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes without the carbs! So I steamed the cauliflower in the microwave in one of those steaming bags. I forgot that those steam the veggies to just crisp/tender. I needed them soft, remember. I got the cauliflower out of the microwave, put it in a bowl, and lowered the mixer into the veggies. Cauliflower flew everywhere. In the toaster. Under the toaster. All over the counter. All over the stand mixer. On the stove. On the coffee maker. On the floor. Everywhere.
I was not happy. The veggies wouldn't mash, but at least they tasted good - very good. Lesson learned, and the cleanup wasn't too bad, since everything had been clean to start with. Just be careful when you think everything is perfect. Because it won't be for long.
