I had a free-form meatloaf baking in the oven, we heard a large pop and crash. The stoneware pan I was using had shattered in the oven...burger grease every where and it was NOT a self cleaning oven.

Well, that really stinks. Time to put Shrek to work with the Easy-Off.

Would you believe the darned hood fan blows back into the room, it's not vented outside. Grrrr!

Let everything cool off and put the cats in the oven!

This was not a recent event, just running on about a "worse mess"...I made the landlord buy a new stove when 3 of the 4 burners stopped working. There was a short somewhere as the large burner would go out each time a new element was installed.

I've had my share of mistakes as well! The first time I made lasagna it ran out of the pan and had cheese all over the pan and the oven. I was about 13 yrs old. It was my first "family dinner" that I did ALL the cooking. Mom only helped with finding the ingredients. My planned dessert was baked Alaska. I had learned how to make it in home ec class at school. So we ate the lasagna and salads. Mom cleared the dishes while I put together the baked Alaska. Set the oven to 500 per instructions. A short time later, we had a flambe going in the oven! The cheese had caught fire. I'll never do that again!

Perhaps these pics will make your SO feel better.

If there is only one thing I learned and remember to do is look inside the oven first Before turning it on to warm up. Corollary-- take cat inventory before turning on the dryer.

Even the best cooks have their mistakes.
