Four Alarm Cook - Etheree

One 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! For Susan Burch's Contest "Ridiculous Self Exaggerations"

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.
