The Disaster Meal

Tonight I made a disaster meal. Originally, it was hamburgers with fried potatoes.

Step 1: Form ground beef into patties and place on a rack sitting in a foil lined cookie sheet

Step 2: Swear in 3 different languages as stupid patties keep falling apart and falling through the rack. Stick in broiler.

Step 3: Look in cupboard for the potato (the using up of which was the reason this was even on the menu plan) and realize you have already used it in something else.

Step 4: Get out a bag of chips.

Step 5: Set your hot pad on fire while flipping the crumbling burgers over. Make sure to lose about 1/4 of your meat.

Step 6: Get out rolls and discover that even though you bought them YESTERDAY, they are harder than rocks.

Step 7: Weep.

Step 8: Cut up some jalapeno slices, spread over one side of a tortilla, add a handful of shredded cheddar cheese. Microwave for 30-60 seconds or until cheese is mostly melted.

Step 9: Carefully lay hamburger patties onto melted cheese, being careful to drop as many pieces of meat on the floor as possible. Squirt on some ranch dressing. Fold the tortilla.

Step 10: Serve.
