Carnival of the Recipes

I'm so aggravated with myself, I can hardly stand it. I fully intended to participate this week in the Carnival of the Recipes as CaltechGirl was the hostess with the Mostess. Daggumit!!! GRRR.

So read it HERE! It is up and it looks GREAT.

I was all ready to cut and paste the recipe for Pepper Vodka Chicken from Frazzled Dad, but then I got to the part where it said, 'Fire is involved' and I chickened out. (No pun intended.) It brings back memories on how I accidentally almost set my kitchen on fire a few years ago.

Unbeknownst to me, the evening before, my husband had melted a butter sauce and it got on a back burner and he didn't clean it up. I turned on the stove and after a minute or two, 2 foot flames shot out from the back burner. I damn near had a heart attack. I grabbed a pot lid, threw it over the fire and squelched it. I turned around to look for our fire extinguisher and there sat my three boys. They had been playing nearby and when they saw the great fire, they pulled up chairs. They were sitting three in a row, watching intently when I heard:

Mom! Do it again! Do it again!

I don't do fire anymore.

Anyway, there's great stuff over there at Not Exactly Rocket Science. Check it out! I double dog dare ya!

Don't give up on fire entirely. At least not until you've put a pop-tart in a toaster and just let it go until flames shoot out:
