Thank you Cabernet Sauvignon!

I have been sick since NEW YEARS EVE! I even fell asleep before the ball dropped (very disappointing) I started feeling like myself yesterday and sick of eating canned soup; I wanted to cook a comfort meal and even more comforting dessert. My menu planned of pot roast with mashed potatoes, carrots, peas, and brioche berry bread pudding. As I start my pot of oil to sear my pot roast it splatters and about 1/4 cup of oil decides to pop on my arm... (OUCH!!!!) At first I was in shock... then in agonizing pain. I was so upset because I was so looking forward to drinking a glass of the best wine ever (Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon) listen to my new Dean Martin CD (thanks Grandma) but yet I cooked my arm. (And I thought olive oil was good for your skin) So, instead I freaked out and ran all around my duplex (people below were prob wondering what the heck I was doing. Finally, when my scorching arm 'cooled' down I did cook my delicious comfort meal! (just drank the bottle of wine to ease the pain while I cooked)

Thought I would share the pain (picture of when it happened and day after (Ouch!)

After that heres a pretty site!
