Top 10 SCARY Holiday Foods

Sometimes, bad menus happen to good people.

And, sometimes, people are just horrible cooks.

It wouldn’t be a holiday if we didn’t have tons of food. But, let’s face it, just because there’s tons of it, doesn’t mean the food will be fabulous.

    First time I hosted a large family group for Thanksgiving, the house filled with smoke. I had used too shallow s pan for the turkey and the drippings were spilling onto the oven’s burners. I decided to transfer the piping hot turkey into a different pan. Mid-transfer the greasy turkey slipped from my grip and hit the floor, where it developed a spin any bowler would be proud of as it slid across the floor, slinging hot grease all over the walls. It slid down the windows in shiny streaks. I burst into tears and my husband wordlessly got the turkey into the pan and began cleaning up the mess. You’ve heard the expression “ you could eat off the floor”? Little did my guests know. Never told a soul…til now. P. S. The turkey was still delicious.

      Oh my gosh, Denise!!! That is hilarious!!!

      My first time hosting our 30 plus family at our first home was crazy stressful with aunts and cousins giving more advice than I could stand, sick kids, surprise visitors, etc. Everyone calmed down when dinner started and I was glad there were no major hiccups. I didn’t find out until YEARS later that one of our large dogs had grabbed the giant ham I had prepared, ran out to the back yard, and been chased down by my cousin. Apparently, he rinsed off the ham & put it right back on the serving platter. I just thought one of my aunts had rinsed off the sauce I’d glazed it with. Lol!!! Only my cousin knew!!!

    Corns bread … oh man, you’ve reminded me of the time my mother got my then 17 year-old son to replace the corn plasters on her feet in the middle of rush hour in downtown San Francisco. Uh huh, pretty special.
