Should I share this?
Yes, I did it!
While visiting with my grandkids last night.. Thought I would fix a quick dinner. Their choice, chicken nuggets with mac and cheese.
I noticed a small amount of grease. Really thought it would be fine til after dinner. We placed chicken nuggets on cookie sheet and started a pan of water on the stove top. Sister went back outside while the baby and I got his jammies ready. We were only gone for a couple minuets.
Entering the kitchen I noticed small flames thru the glass door. Thinking no way, I placed the baby in his chair.
The fire grew! It grew quickly! I couldn’t find anything.. I was totally shocked! Grabbed a bag of flour from pantry and doused the flames. Gone. Great. Nope, large flames shortly flared. Using more flour finally the flames were out permanently.
Good thing my grand-daughter did not witness my fire in the oven. I’m sure all the kids on the block would have been excited.
Yes, I had a huge mess to clean after dinner.
In my fortysomething years I’ve never caused a fire in the oven.
Wonder if my daughter will suggest McDonalds next time.
