Chris Pratt says he's proud of wife Katherine Schwarzenegger's stab at cooking after she scorched microwaveable Bagel Bite

Chris Pratt took to Instagram Sunday with a light-hearted jab at wife Katherine Schwarzenegger after she burnt, to a crisp, a microwaveable snack she was preparing.

'Proud of my darling for trying to cook tonight,' the Guardians Of The Galaxy leading man, 40, wrote. 'Did it go well? No. No it did not. Not at all.'

The shot depicted a large burn blotch on a horizontal white dish that had water poured over it, and Pratt addressed it affectionately in regards to his spouse, the 29-year-old daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.

'As you can tell from the lump of coal in the center of the plate, this bagel bite never stood a chance,' the Moneyball star said. 'I honestly simply cannot imagine what went wrong here. Pretty simple. Microwave. 2 minutes. Maybe she thought it said 2 hours.

'But I want to commend her for her effort. This is a big step babe. Proud of you.'

The Minnesota native quoted Sylvester Stallone's iconic cinematic character Rocky Balboa in putting the culinary gaffe into perspective. 

He wrote: 'It’s not how many times you get knocked down, it’s how many times you get up... and keep moving forward.'

Katherine responded, 'Looks like my plan to just have you do the cooking is working out very well,' while her younger brother Patrick got in on the act, writing 'Smh,' shorthand for shaking my head.

Pratt and Schwarzenegger tied the knot this past June 9 at Montecito, California's San Ysidro Ranch.

He was previously married to Anna Faris, 42, from 2009 until their July 2017 separation, and they share a seven-year-old son named Jack.
