That's one reason why I don't bake, my attention span is too short!

be very careful putting paper towels under the bacon in your nuker.

a guy at work reheated some pizza on paper towels, leaving one in the microwave that had some of the oil from the pizza on it. another guy came along and put another paper towel on top, then re-heated a cup of tea.

the paper towels caught on fire setting off smoke alarms. the city firemen that showed up weren't too happy, nor were our bosses.

Is your DH willing to watch the baking for you? Promises of cookies, cakes, pies, etc. are wonderful motivators.

Whacked up a frozen 11 pound slab of fat back into portions ranging from 6.5 to 33 ounces. A scrupulously cleaned 1.5" wide Stanley carpenter's chisel and a beefy counter top proved to be an excellent way of performing this task. That chisel has now become a permanent part of my butchering armamentarium.
