Following Instructions

The other day I had a rather unremarkable start, to an otherwise challenging day.

No mater what I did, I just couldn’t seem to get anything right.

Perhaps you can see where I made my mistake…

The Instructions said,

…in a large pan, reduce one bottle of white wine, with a few coarsely chopped mushrooms, half an onion, two garlic cloves, and a sprig of fresh basil…

Which I did.

I put all the ingredients in a large pan,

….. switched on the heat;

………. the fresh ingredients burned, and

…………… the bottle exploded!

 

Terror in the Kitchen!

 

I still don’t quite know what went wrong…
