Kitchen Mishaps Event and my illtreated Flan/ Crème Caramel..........

Well, this is my entry for the "Kitchen Mishaps Event" hosted by a wonderful cook and friend named Malar!


As soon as I saw the title of the event, I was totally YES to participate in the event, as it was original, new and something out of the usual titles and moreover, I have collected a good number of blunders in my kitchen.... in so many years of cooking experience and my trials and my re-trials to excel a dish, imagine how many times I'd have messed up!!

I've gone through all sorts of disasters, from deserting the boiling milk on the stove to over cooking the ingredients....and I can go on.....yes, I do make mistakes like any other normal human being...and after all I beleive that I make mistakes to learn better....:):):)

You remember my last post Flan/ Crème Caramel that I did for my Papas's Bday? well, the recipe is fine and I got it well..... no doubts in that!!!!

well, actually I had all the ramekins filled and there was a little more of the cream left and ofcourse a lazy bug like me would never want to take the pain to wait and cook it in the next batch...instead of doing that, I filled up quickly another oven-proof dish; PS: I filled up without even greasing the dish (urge to finish up the work and to quit the kitchen soon) and didn't bother to coat the sides with the caramel either!!! In fact, as I was finished with the caramel which became a rock by that time, ofcourse I wouldn't take the time to do the caramel once again, no, no, no, it's too much of work!!! and sothis is how I illtreated my flan without any caramel and baked, as it is, along with my other ramekins.

The result: There's nothing to say, look at the face of the cream, it is making a disastrous face on me!!!

You see? My kitchen disasters are dated not too far than yesterday.....Good Luck and Happy Hosting Malar!!
PS: FOR THOSE WHO DON'T READ THE INTRODUCTION PART:

Please don't think this is the recipe and don't scold me searching for the recipe, (I think you'll don't even search for a recipe like that...), just zap this post and come back later :):):)  Have a nice week-end , all of you!! Cheers!!!

I like you anecdote' part, well written. Infact, laughed so much seeing the punch line (for those of you all who dont read intro'). Dude, you are one 'sarcastic devil' like me:)

And thanks for the entry, dear. I appreciate it. Hmmm, I agree after several 1000s of disasters' I perfected Wheat Halwa'. We are humans...its okay to make blunders, sure its a learning experience. And I wish, you post 2 recipes per page' as some people will be trilled to see your hard work 'creame caramel' the original:)
