Cookin' up Trouble

I like to think of myself as a decent cook (among other self-appointed titles), but I do make the occasional blunder in the kitchen. The other day I put some tomato soup on the stove and got to work making some grilled cheese sandwiches. Well, I was out of counter space, so I put the lid for the margarine container on the stove. After a moment I noticed that it was quickly melting. I had turned the wrong burner on, and the tomato soup was sitting there doing nothing. So I quickly tried to take the remains of the lid off of the stove, turned off the burner, and turned on the correct one. As I was trying to remove the molten plastic from the one burner, the tomato soup started scalding, because in my haste I had turned it on too high. It was truly something you’d see in an exceptionally boring television show (i.e., a show with no sex or violence).

I melt a spoon or spatula on my burners monthly. It doesn't directly relate but I felt it was relevant.

Joel, you must never ask Jonathan about my incredible ability to burn EVERYTHING I try to cook. I blame our freakishly hot stove. Seriously, it boils water in less than 3 minutes.
