Adulting and such

On Saturday, I made a cake for dessert, and I put it on the top rack of the oven where it outgrew its bundt and started to rise around the oven coils. So I moved it to the bottom shelf where some of it fell onto the oven floor and turned into charred lumps and made the house smell terrible.

The cake was delicious, and I forgot about the oven.

On Sunday, Ben roasted broccoli, and the old cake caught fire in the bottom of the oven, and the house filled with smoke. We had to open all the windows, but even that didn't help. Ben also grilled burgers and some spicy turkey sausages which he and I were planning to eat for lunch this week. Midway through our smoky dinner, our next door neighbor called to say our GRILL WAS ON FIRE, which explains so much about why the open windows didn't help our smoke problem.

I need to remember to buy more baking soda on my way home. It's great at dousing grill fires, but it's essential for making cookies.

So, how was your weekend?
