It was my first Christmas as a young married woman. This was going to be so special. <br />
We had invited our friends, another young married couple who had got married about <br />
the same time as we did and had a baby just a month older than our baby girl. <br />
We had bought a turkey and all the trimmings. We even had a bottle of good white wine that my dad had bought, <br />
because we were still to young to buy liquor. Not too young to get married. Not too young to have children. <br />
Not too young for my husband to enlist in the army. But too young to buy wine.<br />
<br />
We got the house decorated all very festive. With a tree and garlands and mistletoe. <br />
All the gifts had been opened in the morning, except the ones we had for our first Christmas guests. <br />
Oh, I was so excited. I had made a homemade fruit cake, apple pie, and some plum pudding. <br />
And there were only going to be four of us for dinner. So, everything was ready. <br />
All I had to do was stuff the bird and pop it into the oven. So I did it. <br />
Not too early, as it was not a big bird. Just about a 12 pound turkey. <br />
About noon, I got the bird stuffed and put it in the oven. Our guests arrived about threeish. <br />
When hubby went to the kitchen for the refreshments, I asked him to baste the bird, while he was out there. <br />
He called me to the kitchen and told me in a soft voice, that the turkey wasn't cooking. <br />
"But, it must be" I cried. "I put it in there at noon." But, sure enough, it wasn't cooking at all. <br />
I had forgotten to turn on the oven. Well, there was nothing we could do, <br />
except turn on the oven now and have a late dinner. <br />
So, we took the turkey out of the oven, turned it on to preheat. <br />
And went back to our guests apologizing for the delay and explaining that I had goofed <br />
and forgotten to turn on the oven. But all was well. supper would just be at nine instead of six. <br />
They didn't mind, they lived near-by and it wouldn't matter if they were late. <br />
The babies were both okay with us. Their boy was four months old and our daughter was three months old. <br />
As long as they were taken care of, they wouldn't care where they were.<br />
At half past seven I went back to the kitchen to baste the bird, I discovered, to my mortification, t<br />
hat the oven was indeed hot, but I had forgotten to put the turkey in. <br />
It was sitting on top of the very well preheated oven. I went back to the living room and asked, sheepishly, <br />
"Who wants bologna sandwiches?" <br />
So, for our first Christmas as a married couple, we had bologna sandwiches. <br />
On boxing day, we had our friends come back, and I did not forget to turn on the oven; <br />
everything went just fine and we had dinner right on time.<br />
<br />
But, I am so glad we only have one first time. I don't know if I could go through that again.

well just this week for starters, I put chicken in the slow cooker, turned it on and went to work. When I came home 8 hours later, there was an awful smell in the house. It turned out that I had put the temperature probe in between the base of the slow cooker and the pot itself and the probe melted. It's a wonder my house didn't burn down
