We’ve all had them and while I believe that my putting an overly full “non oven safe” matzo ball and chicken soup filled tureen in a 350 oven and having it explode 10 minutes before I was going to serve it is the funniest (in retrospect, of course) story ever told it occurred to me, when my friend Connie was recounting her Turducken “incident” that other host and hostesses might have even better (and messier) stories. So, I’m having a cooking story challenge for anyone who thinks they can top my funniest story ever. All you need to do to participate is write your best story in the comments section and the editorial board will pick our favorite 3 and everyone can vote to pick the winner (and they get a prize!). Deadline to submit is the day after Pesach ends (4/19). Let your friends and family know that the challenge has been issued and may the best (or worst as the case may be) story win.
While you’re sharing your stories, we are cooking, cleaning, and taking a break until after Pesach. We will be back with the final three stories to choose between, as well as an exciting announcement after the holiday, so stay tuned! If you find yourself in a bind during yontif and need help or suggestions, just send me a message here or on Facebook – I’ll be happy to respond. Have wonderful and meaningful Seders.
