My 4yo was very tired and cranky/whingy at dinner time and he sat and sooked for a bit and then said his lasagne was too hot and he couldn't eat it.. I was cooking veg lasagne for me and the hubby, so without thinking I took a fork full of his lasagne and stuck it on my tongue, just to check for heat, It wasn't til after I did it that I thought.. oh **** that was beef.. I didn't taste beef.. all i tasted was a lil cheese and no heat. Anyone else done dumb stuff like this without thinking?

I don't make anything with meat so not really.<br><br>
I was breaking up my sons grilled cheese sandwich yesterday and a piece of cheese that had to have been at molten stage hit my thumb though and I instinctively put it in my mouth.<br><br>
I don't stress about it though. It's not really a big deal in the run of things.<br><br>
Why do you make meat lasagna for your kids? Why not have them eat the veggie one too? Lasagna works wonderful with vegetables..<br><br>
Just confused I guess. I *never* put beef in my lasagna. lol<br><br>

A while back, I caught myself licking the knife after spreading cream cheese on my daughter's bagel. I was really surprised at how greasy the "real" stuff tasted after having had "Better Than Cream Cheese" for a while - and I can honestly say that I prefer the BTCC now.

our oven is broken.. I usually make a great lentil lasagne the whole family loves, but I had to buy frozen from the supermarket, the only veg lasagne I could get had big chunks of veg the kids won't stand for that.. and as my kids aren't veg I got them a small beef one. ( We .. hubby and I.. have only been veg for 8 months, with home cooked stuff I usually win the kids over ), but as the oven is broken.. still waiting on the repair man for the third time, damn rental properties.. I have no oven and have to do stove top or microwave.

A few months ago I was in London with a group of people, and one had a bucket of popcorn chicken. She offered me some and I half held my hand out and said "Wait, is there chicken in this?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/idea2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":idea:"> I think that not only goes under the stupidest vegan related thing I've done, but the stupidest thing I've ever said full stop. I still have no idea what my mind was doing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dizzy2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dizzy:">

Misty - make crazy lasagna... boil your noodles and make your sauce just like usual. Put sauce and noodles in your serving platter then add in whatever cheese you use (if you use any sort of cheese or ricotta, that is), toss gently it to mix everything through and serve. Yes, it will look like a disaster occured but it will taste just as good as the stuff you bake. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
BBTT: When we met up with Tofu and Froggy just recently, I ordered a fruit plate because it was quite hot out and I didn't feel like having a lot on my tummy in that sort of heat. Dense me forgot to check about the dipping sauce that came with the fruit and when my order came out that sauce was yogurt based....with REAL yogurt. I ate it without saying a word (like I'm really going to admit in front of <i>real vegans</i> that I screwed up royally? Not on your life, bub! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> ) and afterwards, got a lovely flare-up I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. On my defense I should say I usually check things well, but I was so caught up in the social aspect of the meetup that I honestly forgot.<br><br><br><br>
Next time I do a meetup, I'll make sure my brain is one of the <b>first</b> things packed, instead of one of the last.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

Dumbest thing lately? Turned the sprinkler on full blast without checking to see that my bedroom window was closed... It sprayed in the window and soaked my bed. Yes, I feel stupid, thank you.<br><br><br><br>
Dumbest vegan thing? Took a bite of my sisters ravioli at a restaurant. She said "It has tomato sauce" which it did... but it was FILLED with cheese (duhhhh). She wasn't meaning to mislead me, neither of us thought about it...

I procrastinate.<br><br><br><br>
Don't mean to. I just do. I know I need to get things done, and yet I put them off, and put them off and put them off.<br><br><br><br>
A direct line to this is why I am so late places as well. I don't leave until the last possible minute, and when I AM on time, it is usualy only by a minute or two.<br><br><br><br>
That would be the dumbest things I do without thinking.

Well, Last year in food studies, we were making savoury muffins, mine without bacon, and my friend gave me a few of his, without thinking, I quickly took a bite into one, when I realise "Oh crap, that has bacon"<br><br><br><br>
*quickly spits out and puts in bin*

Yikes! I've never cooked a lasagna in the microwave! That takes guts.<br><br>
I'm always a little thrown by meat lasagna. Then again I never really ate spaghetti and meatballs either. i was a pasta purist I guess.<br><br>
I hear you on the veggies. We actually just served them to our 5 year olds and let them pick them out for ages. Now they eat them. one day one of them said "What's this? A carrot? I'm going to eat it." and that was that. Now they ask me which veggies I'm putting into dinner.<br><br>
Just a thought. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>

My mom put butter on a sandwich she made me one time.<br><br><br><br>
I was halfway through the sandwich when I realized there was butter on it.<br><br><br><br>
P.S. Isn't it kinda creepy the way the ads seem related to the thread topic? People were talking about lasanga and the ads are about lasanga.

Just the other day I bought 2 cups of instant soup- the Nile brand I do believe. One was a curried lentil soup- I read the ingrediants and it was totally vegan. The other one was a black bean soup. I brought that one to work and was just about to go get hot water when I read the ingrediants again. Chicken stock!!! Never assume that because one of the flavors is vegan, all of them will be!

Testing the soup at my job to see if it was hot enough to serve to people and then remembering that it was <b>chicken</b> tortilla. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

Ugh. That's exactly what it's like with me at restaurants when it comes to veggie burgers. I have to yell out that I don't want cheese. Slips my mind sometimes.
