Note To Self...

The next time you decide to be thrifty and make your own barbecue sauce instead of paying $1.59 for the stuff at the store, remember not to grab the measuring cup in such a way as to spill 2 cups worth of ketchup all over your socks, kitchen rug and floor and down the crack between your stove and counter.

Just thought I'd mention it in case you could possibly forget how fun that was to clean up.

You make barbecue sauce too? What DON'T you do?

BTW, was the sauce any good?

I hate when that happens.

Matthew did that once. The house we were living in had carpet in the kitchen (crazy, I know, but it was there when we bought it). His 2-year-old self tried to lift a big bottle of ketchup out of the fridge. He dropped it and the plastic bottle "exploded." Ketchup went everywhere! I tried and tried to get it out of the carpet--no luck. Someone mentioned homeowners insurance. Hmmm, hadn't thought of that. What do you know--it wasn't long before we had a beautiful new TILE floor that we didn't have to pay for :o)

tchn5th-
I'm sure the sauce would have been great - if I had any more ketchup to make it with. The 2 cups I dropped pretty much exhausted the bottle.

Cari-
Live and learn, I hope!

holmes-
Our kitchen rug cleaned up nicely in the backyard with a hose. But we had a carpeted kitchen in our first house, too - so I feel your pain.
