I was drawing a blank on dinner tonight when I remembered I’d made some rich and creamy goat cheese polenta for breakfast the other day and still had some left. I decided I’d slice it, fry it up to get some dark, sweet caramelization on the surface, and top it with a bag of leftover tongue bolognese from the freezer (I have a bunch left from my last big batch).
I took the container out of the fridge and was about to drop it on a plate for slicing. A bit of condensation had collected, so I drained it over the sink.
Like an idiot, without holding the lid in place.
Plop. Right into a bowl full of soapy water.
Lesson: clean the goddamn sink before cooking.
