Whisked Away!

We have a submersible blender that we use a lot for smoothies, shakes, etc. It is a very handy tool that we use a lot around here. Well, it came with a whisk attachment that we have never used. Tonight I was making pancakes and I thought it would be a good time to try the electric whisk. Bad idea.

(Blogger decided to turn this photo too. Tilt you head to the side to get the full effect!)

It shot the pancake batter out of the bowl faster than lightening. The sink, the counters, the refrigerator, the floor, the throw rug, the baby boy and I were all covered in pancake batter. The poor little guy was standing beside me when the stuff shot out and his face was at just the right height to get the blunt of the batter. Poor little guy's face and hair were covered. I felt horrible! I learned a lesson today...don't do that again! And, if I do decide to take the whisk attachment out again, I ought to read the instructions first.

I just have to post the following picture because today I learned that after dinner disasters, a little dress up can help cheer a mama up!


  1. What a mess! I am sure it was not fun cleaning that up.

    How fun of dd dressing-up. Did you help her or did she come up with her outfit all on her own? I love the birds on the head...the scarf, the shoes, everything. SO creative.

  2. No, it wasn't fun!

    She needed help with tying but all of the outfit was picked out by her. The birds on the head were by favorite!
