Four Alarm Cook - Etheree

day I 
thought I would
boil some eggs so
I put them on the
stove on high heat, being
the impatient lass I am.
I got distracted in the yard.
The eggs blew up and the pan almost
melted. That’s why my husband is the cook!

    Just here to say HELLO!! (joe coming home very soon and we are going out to Cheesecake Factory, so it's something to look forward to, but I doubt I'll be here for two days!)

    I'm not seeing congrats for this one, but just wanted to tell you that I sure thought it was humorous.

    Patience is a virtue, and now we all know why. Cause if we eat your cooking, we probably will die. How's that for a rediculous exaggeration. :)

    I was trimming the flowers until I smelled the burning smell from about 20 feet away out my sliding glass doors.

    hahaha, GOOD WAY to do her contest. Wow, Connie. Why didn't I think of this? I might go the etheree route myself!! I have done this egg trick at least three times myself, but at least the pan never melted. hahaha. Luv ya, Andrea (cute avatar!)
