Isn't Life Great?



This is a sink.  In the sink lies a bowl.  Inside the bowl lies, just visible, a frying pan. Now it is not unusual to see a pan in a washing u bowl, but this one is different.  This is a symbol of my life today!  You see I used the pan to fry some mushrooms and tomatoes to go along with my fish, chips and beans, a nourishing but unspectacular chow the other night.  The pan was later stored away at the bottom of the oven, some oil still inside, awaiting further use. Last night, using all my intellect to the fullest effect, I decided that eating the remains from the bag of oven chips would equal my tea because I was too lazy busy to fix anything that required effort.
It was while I searched the web for dead soldiers in the fields of France and Gallipoli that I began to actually taste the aroma of war. The burning smell from the shells and destroyed buildings was very clear to me as I Googled.  It was as if I was there!  I was!  The frying pan was burning and the house was filling with smoke and all was danger!  I ate in a calm atmosphere, eyes nipping with the smoke in the air, doors and windows open, and a cold draught going right up my kilt!  The smell still lingers today, even after a lot of elbow grease has been involved.  
Life will be better from now on, I wonder if I bought that lottery ticket.....?

i have a wee trick for you. Light a candle. No really for every culinary disaster you can escape ridicule by lighting a candle. It makes the smell go away. Even more so if you place a twig of dried heather over the flame. But don't go to bed and forget to blow out the candle ok.

Have you invested in a smoke alarm?

Mo, Indeed I have heard of that before. The smell has died down and the opened windows have helped. Naturally I am now freezing to death!

A, I have! They make a lot of noise.....

RDG, Oh good! Then I won't have to do any more of this....

Sounds like life as usual around here.

I suspect you had been to the pub beforehand...

Adullamite said...

Jerry, I believe this.

Mike, Me....?

Have you ever tried grilling oven chips? I find from experience that using a plastic bowl cuts down on the washing up.

Jenny, I just burn everything!
