I had thrown baking soda on the fire to put it, which worked well, but then my food was covered in baking soda. I don't try to cook game hens in the t.o. anymore.
My SIL/BIL invited us over for dinner. She was cooking a brisket in the oven. I ran to the store to get something we needed.

My SIL was checking the brisket, and it caught on fire. Instead of closing the oven, turning off the heat, and letting it go out, my BIL emptied a fire extinguisher on it.

I got back to pandemonium. The whole kitchen, including my BIL, was covered in a thin layer of white powder. This is the same BIL I nicknamed "The Steak Murderer."

I've had my share of spills, breaks, etc., but I've never set anything on fire or had anything explode in the microwave. Anything you're willing to admit to?

Dinner tonight will be Greek meatballs (ground lamb) with tzatziki, orzo, and a house salad.
I've had the normal minor cuts and burns - nothing first aid couldn't take care of.

I don't have a lot of spoons tonight, so we're having an easy dinner - PF Chang's Orange Chicken over leftover rice & orzo with sugar snap peas and marinated cucumbers.

I used the guard the second time. Still managed to cut off a fingertip.

Thinking back, I did have a kitchen doofus incident. I have a Weber gas grill, and I was a little remiss in cleaning out the tray underneath the burners. There was enough greasy junk in there to catch fire, with flames shooting all around the grill. I quickly turned off the gas from the bottle and stood well back until it burned out. Since then I've become religious about cleaning the grill.

Tonight's dinner was breakfast. I cooked two pounds of bacon in the oven, made home fries in a CI skillet and we fried some eggs.

My most recent kitchen disaster was tonight. When moving the bacon pans around in the oven, a little bacon fat splashed out of a pan and ignited on the bottom of the oven. The fire was short-lived and no bacon was harmed in the cooking and flaming process.

SO wondered if the cookies she's planning to bake tomorrow will taste like bacon. I decided to maintain domestic tranquility and ran a self-clean cycle.

I sure hope tomorrow isn't national cut off your finger day of something similar.
