I added the frozen strawberries, and noticed my blender wasn't plugged in. So I plugged it in. Unfortunately, it was on. Frozen strawberries went flying across the kitchen. Meira immediately grabbed one and ran under the coffee table with her prize.
I recovered from the shock and shut off the blender. Luckily, there wasn't any liquid and most of the strawberries ended up on the counter or on the linoleum. I rescued the my strawberry from the dog, cleaned up the strawberry explosion, and (successfully) made my smoothie.
Picture from here.
Note to self: Make sure blender is off before plugging it in.
Anyone else have any kitchen mishaps lately?
