OOOPS… I did it again!



Yes…I did it again.

Not that I do it every day..

but even once in a blue moon

is one planet too many.

I made a beautiful roast in my crock pot

with red wine

 and garlic

and freshly cut oregano

and basil

cooked it for 6 hours

to serve another day

because I want to make my life easier

and be more organized

and plan ahead..


I left it to cool on the counter

 and then

watched some ice hockey on TV


washed my face


brushed my teeth


went to bed..

forgetting to put the roast in the fridge.

Sunrise over downtown Cincinnati

Went online immediately this morning

after discovering it

in its luke warm state

still sitting

on the counter

right where I left it.


Read about food poisoning..

 calculated the risk

and the cost


before sneaking it out to the trash

which thank God gets picked up today


At least I remembered that.

    1. Cindy says:’s just the worst feeling..and the internal debate that follows as you mull over things like..” well, how bad could the potential diarrhea actually be for my family?..maybe just a mild case? but husband has a flight scheduled..that would be bad…” and on and on…


  2. I would’ve cooked it. I’m a rebel. Plus, might drop 5 lbs….
