What Happen When You've Been Sick for 2 Days...

and you try to cook supper for your family? Well, I cooked a sippy cup instead of the chicken!


I was in the other room, thinking "hmmm... something must be on that eye burner," so I walk in the kitchen to check the chicken and lo and behold I had turned on the wrong eye! Smoke, toxic smoke, from the toxic plastic has already filled the kitchen. I turn off that eye and open the windows and back door in the kitchen. My throat is sensitive since I've had strep this week and I have to get a cloth to cover my mouth.

The kids are amazed that there's 'fire' in the house but want to make sure that the 'fire' stays in the kitchen. After all the smoke clears and things start to calm down Emmie asked me why I burned the cup and I told her that I didn't mean to. A few minutes later she came up to me and asked me if I was mad at the cup!

Doesn't sound so yummy. :)

I cannot count the number of times I have turned on the wrong burner. I ALWAYS DO. Maybe it's because I am right brained or something.

I've seriously wished they made a stove with the knobs for right-brained people like myself.

Sorry for the lost sippy cup.

Oh my, that's a funny story!

OH NO!

That's pretty scary looking.

Oh, no...that sounds like something I would do...I did melt a plastic plate once by laying it on a hot burner.

It is good to see your running is going well! I had pneumonia for a couple of weeks, so I am just getting back to it!

Oh, I am so sorry you did that! I made cupcakes for our foster daughter's Valentines party and had a few of the extra on one of my NEW plates on the back burner. I turned dinner on (so I thought) and ruined the plate and almost started the cupcakes on fire...they were burnt right through the paper!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't read the labels on the stove - Clara & Beau get SO frustrated with me!
