This is why we can't have nice stuff

I can't blame this on my kid.  It's all the fault of the adults.

Seriously, who goes through this many meat
thermometers, and
keeps them?
Here's what you shouldn't do with meat thermometers.

You shouldn't put them close to the burners when they're on.  It melts the plastic cover, and makes the numbers difficult to read. (My fault.)

You shouldn't put the meat back in the oven with the thermometer still in it.  The plastic cover pops off, and the sensor is forever ruined. (My husband's fault.)

You shouldn't put them in the garbage disposal.  They break. (Both our faults.)


  1. I can't tell you how many meat thermometers we have gone through in our 13 years of marriage. This Thanksgiving my husband was looking for the meat thermometer and he was shocked that the one we used last year still worked! We haven't even done anything like you, ours just don't work very long before it is time to replace them.

  2. I think I'm running for some kind of award here, though I'm not sure what. Something deserving of a frame at least, I'm certain!
