Sometimes I can really mess up, not just in sewing sometimes life can get rough. I just had to share my today boo-boo. I make the dog's treats, usually I use turkey dogs, as they are cheap and fat free, but I was given some sausage by a person didn't care for it and thought maybe the dogs would like it. The way I make the treats, is to slice them put them in the microwave and dry for about 3 minutes. They come out as little hard treats I can keep in a container. These sausages were pretty big, so I am thinking maybe 4 minutes would be needed to dry them. What I didn't take into consideration is the fat content!!!! So what did I get after 4 minutes? A kitchen filled with smoke, little black treats that are hard as rocks and even now a house that smells like it does when I try to cook supper. Oh yum-- well the good side? The dogs love them.
