“Open the oven, take a look; first to complain is next week’s cook”

"Open the oven, take a look; first to complain is next week’s/tomorrow’s cook” is a saying that has been included on many lists of humorous kitchen one-liners. The saying has been cited in print since at least 2005.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
Yes I know there isn’t such a thing. But, anyways. The day before Thanksgiving is more of a pain than Thanksgiving day. I worked for half of the day today, then came home and worked all evening in the kitchen preparing food for tomorrow. It is rediculous that we spend all of this time preparing for a meal that takes about half an hour to devour. At least in my family that is the case. And, Uncle Richard always has a comment about something that isn’t just right. One of these days we aren’t going to cook anything for him and make him fend for himself. Like the sign that Uncle Bobby gave Mom that says “ Open the oven and take a look, The first to complain is tomorrows cook.” If only that were true
