Weekend Question Thread

What was your worst kitchen fail? Recipe gone wrong, gave a party food poisoning, what? 

We had just bought a new oven when I was having friends over for dinner and I was toasting pine nuts in a pan. Got distracted doing something else and totally forgot about them, so when I smelled them burning I grabbed the pan. Spilled them everywhere inside the oven and they burst into flames. 

Luckily, these were old friends, so when they arrived they merely asked politely when I’d purchased a smoker for the chicken we were about to eat.
