I just did the dumbest thing ever...

Proof of lack of sleep - I've been cooking lamb shanks in the crock pot all day. The final step was to strain the liquid and remove all the bits and pieces from it (cloves, cinnamon stick, star anise etc etc), discard the crap, then return the liquid to the pot and thicken it for sauce to go with the shanks.

What did I just do??

I strained it alright, through the sieve, and into a COLANDER!!!! Thereby tipping all the 'sauce' down the sink! Stupid woman...

Guess I'd better go make some gravy or something :-/

  1. Oh dear that sounds like something I would do. A bit like someone fixing a pipe and then squeezing a rag into the attached sink.

    Well our dishdrawer's motor has burnt out so be glad you are only looking at a ruined dinner not a hefty repair bill or replacement cost.

    Hope the gravy turned out ok!
