Woah buddy. Y'all....the amount of wife fails that I committed yesterday was absurd. Josh reminded me during the craziness that we were still newlyweds and this kind of stuff is supposed to happen. Thank goodness for supportive husbands, amiright?!

So here's how my wife fails went down. I'm sitting at work around 4:00 and it dawns on me that I totally forgot to put meat out for dinner, we were planning on having tacos. Let me mention that this has to be the 47th time I've done this since we've been married. I text Josh and he's all "its alright, maybe we can put it in some hot water and cook dinner a little later." That's a good man, folks.

I get home and  go to get the meat out of the fridge and GUESS WHAT? No meat to be found, none. I literally searched the freezer like someone had hidden it from me. I would have bet my life that we had some in there. So we resort to chicken nuggets...that we have had for the last two nights. Sigh.

So dinner is going to be chicken nuggets, broccoli and rice. Best dinner ever, obviously. I fill the pot with water and put the rice in, let it boil, once it starts boiling I turn it down and cover it and let it sit. In the meantime I put the broccoli in the microwave to steam.

Everything is done cooking and I go to scoop out the rice and it is SOUP. I'm talking straight soup, you couldn't even see the rice. Want to know why? Because it called for TWO cups of water and I just stuck it under the faucet and filled the pot up about half way. Sigh, again.

We figure something out with the rice, husband to the rescue on that one. Dinner is on the table and Josh goes to eat his broccoli...and it's brown...and cold. WHAT THE HECK?!? I just took it out of the microwave where it was there for seven minutes...seven minutes! It has to be hot after seven minutes!!!

Goodness, so we're having chicken nuggets for the third night, soupy rice, and cold broccoli. Bon appetit? This wife business sure does creep up on me some days, no doubt.

And while we're here talking about fails I guess I should go ahead and mention that about 2 weeks ago I cooked a frozen pizza...on cardboard. It came out of the oven and I was thinking to myself "this thing sure doesn't look cooked all the way" so we sit down to eat it and the blasted thing is COLD! Wouldn't ya know that you're not supposed to cook it with the cardboard under it?

And another, just for laughs. I was making chicken alfredo one night and I had cooked the chicken, it looked delicious and was ready to go. I also had my broccoli ready to throw in (properly cooked this time I might add). Meanwhile, Josh is in the living room and I said "hey babe, all my stuff is ready what next?" (I'm a totally newbie at this cooking biz) and he said "ok good, is the pasta ready?" Y'all, my mouth HIT the floor I TOTALLY FORGOT TO MAKE THE PASTA!!! How do you forget the main part of chicken alfredo?!?! Oh my gosh, I literally didn't say a word when he asked me and ran back into the kitchen frantically searching for a pot and ripping the fettuccini from the cabinet.

Go ahead and laugh now, because I'm not making these mistakes again!...at least for another week or two ;)

The best part about all of my wife fails? The hubs always comes to the rescue and helps me laugh it all off. Don't know what I'd do without that man.
