Proof I'm not a Vampire

I was making dinner last night and I was having trouble mincing some garlic (in the press). So, I called Jason in to help me. I was holding the bowl (so it wouldn't be knocked over) and I asked him not to get any on me. The next thing I know, this happened:

He pushed so hard, garlic went everywhere. Luckily, I was there to block it from engulfing my kitchen. I love garlic, but man, did I smell (yes, I cook in my pj's, aka: old running shirt).

The garlic managed to go around me and even get on my cabinets. What a mess.

I cleaned up before things got difficult to. Little did I know, I still had a large piece of garlic stuck to the inside of my nose. I was wondering why I couldn't get the smell away from me and my nose burned (maybe I am part vampire).

Through all that mess, my maple mustard buttermilk chicken turned out great. I also made some (standard) mashed potatoes and corn with it.

What kind of messes happen in your kitchen?

    I always have trouble with the garlic press - that's a husband job!
