As a totally inadequate follow-up to the now infamous "Oatmeal Blog"I thought I would share more things they don't teach you in cooking school (actually they probably do). In this case the kitchen range was installed too low (or the counter-tops to high) which allows the flames under a large pot to scorch the countertop, which could result in cooking more than supper. Sure would add a "different" odor to whatever was cooking though. I don't know if any of you have had an occasion to set plastic laminate material on fire (not implying anything about my cooking abilities in the kitchen either)----but it smells REALLY, REALLY bad .
At least the sink is close by.
But wouldn't it be nicer to have an actual "combination-pot-filler/fire-extinguisher" right at your fingertips?
PS, for those of you that are new to my blog (or for some other unexplained reason have never noticed) all pictures and smiley-face inserts (emoticons) have messages that show up when you point at them with your cursor.
