Dumbass strikes again!

Do you like Indian food? Over here in Cakerwakerville, we love Indian food. I have been craving Indian food lately, so we eat it 3 or 4 times per week. When my husband got home from work tonight, I happily suggested Indian food for dinner. Being the nice guy that he is, John agreed to cook Channa Masala again.

Unfortunately, the evening turned out to be more hectic than we had originally intended. After arriving home late, John had to take out the garbage, help a neighbor move some furniture, get in the shower, and cook my beloved Indian food. To save time, John decided to let me cook the Nan while he was taking a shower. My only job was to flip the bread...
Guess who forgot to flip the Nan?
I seem to be completely unable to cook. Even flipping a piece of bread is too damn hard. I am pathetic.

Praise the good lord Jesus for restaurants.

I asked my husband, an awesome cook, about this and he said nan is hard to get right. Even for him!

That's fabulous! I only say that because I'm notorious for doing crap like that too. That's mainly why I rarely cook, and the stuff that I do cook usually comes out of a box that goes in the microwave. However I've been known to burn that stuff too.
