Toasted Pan

I'm a pretty decent cook. I'd humbly put my skill level at around the 65th percentile...

But that doesn't stop me from doing things like setting the frying pan on fire - twice - while trying to make fried eggs for breakfast.


So yes, I definitely lose points for endangering the life of myself, my child and my cat, and the property of 3 families. But I regain some by not giving in and going to Dunkin' Donuts for breakfast. I pulled out a second frying pan (as the first one is probably going to be sent to the great stove top in the sky), did NOT turn the burner to the very highest setting, and made some very delicious, completely un-runny (thats a good thing in my book) fried eggs. And I enjoyed them very much.


(Oh yes, I also gain points back for only thinking about taking a picture because it would be great on the blog before putting the fire (okay, both fires) out.)

I always seems to boil things over. Put water on to boil, turn it up to the highest setting, and walk away. 5-10 minutes later..."Ahhhhh!" (Running to the stove.) My range is perpetually dirty. Oh, Maxine got a book from her school's library today about Paul Revere and his ride to Lexington and the start of the Revolutionary War. I was very pleased to tell her she'd been to Lexington and had the pictures to prove it! Thanks Em!

that made me remember when Laura stayed at our house right after she got married(we were gone for the summer) and she did the same thing,the fire alarm went off which set off the house alarm, good thing it wasn't actually monitored at the time cause the fire department would have shown up. haha. but I once set the oven on fire...yeah kinda scary...i always keep the oven clean now. :)

haha. Yes. It would have been tempting to take the picture of the fire...except for the small risk of burning down the house. Nice save!! :o)
