Yes. I'm a guy. Not often, but once in a while, we make kitchen mistakes too.
One year, I was having about 20 people to my house for a New Years Eve party. And following tradition, I decided to make this huge roaster of sauerkraut, pork and potatoes to have at midnight. After simmering for some hours, I decided to add spices for the remainder of the slow cook time. I've always liked the addition of a generous amount of paprika to my recipe for taste and color. Unfortunately, when I reached for the can of paprika, I accidentally grabbed the can of cinnamon. I proceeded to dump about a half can into the roaster and didn't realize what I had done until I stirred it and started smelling it. Here's the fun part.
It was too late to get new stuff and start over, so I just let it cook as it was and started thinking about excuses, like trying a new recipe or something. When the guests were there and it was time to serve, everyone got a plate full, ate it and said how much they enjoyed it. Not one person mentioned the cinnamon, so neither did I. Amazingly enough, you could not taste the cinnamon at all. But you could smell it. Twice someone asked me if I was baking something, and holding back from laughing, I told them that I had burnt a toaster strudel earlier in the toaster. They believed me and they hadn't even been drinking a lot. Go figure.
Guess what my resolution was for the next year? It was never to put the cinnamon next to the paprika in the cupboard ever again; EVER!
