Blankets and a Pot Roast

Ummm. I found an awesome recipe in a cookbook a couple of weeks ago. Cranberry Chipotle Pot Roast. I love the tangy taste of Cranberries with meat, so I went to the store specifically for a nice roast. But while I was at the store I saw these yummy soft blankets on sale, so I loaded my cart with blankets and a pot roast.The blankets are going to be Christmas presents to the kids, and my mother, so I rushed home and hid them away in the depths of my closet before the girls saw them.

A few days later, I was digging through the freezer looking for the pot roast and an ugly thought entered my head. "How come I don't remember putting that roast away?" I started to panic a little bit. I went to the other freezer and proceeded to dig away to no avail....

YES dear friends I had stuffed it in my closet under all those fuzzy blankets. Luckily the blankets insulated the stench of rotten meat, and I was able to avoid most of the nasty bloody meat smell because it was in the store bag. But I wasted 10.00 of prime beef. OOH did it stink.

Has anyone else got a story like this or do these things just happen to me?

I've put the milk away in the pantry before. I've also left a roast out on the kitchen counter (defrosting) all night, went to church and came home to a warm roast. (I was only going to leave it out a while the night before but totally forgot about it.) So, yeah, you're not the only one! I'm glad it didn't stink up your closet.

My co-worker left a roast in her trunk and couldn't figure out what the smell was for three months...bleah!

I put the water jug in the pantry.

Gross. At first I thought that the blanket was your roast and to be honest, I was grossed out until I read further. Too bad about the meat.

When things like that happen at our house, it's always Jeremy's fault.
