Like mom used to make

Did your mom ever make something that was a failure? Stood out as less than spectacular? Memorably bad? My mother seemed to have trouble with meatloaf. I remember once my father was not delighted with some meatloaf and perhaps I wasn't, either so my mother gave it to the dog. She used to feed the dog on a piece of wax paper set in a pie tin. When Trinket the peke walked over to it she began to use her face to cover the meatloaf with the wax paper. Of course my mother never lived that down. Needless to say we didn't get a lot of meatloaf after that.

And then there was the Christmas morning she exploded two eggs and they ended up across the room, on the ceiling.
