Trent and I have been on a spending freeze trying to build up our savings.
Before the freeze started, I should have taken a trip to the grocery store. Dumb me. It has been a pretty good opportunity to clean out what's already in the pantry though! Today's lunch: pb&j's. Happy Memorial day!
I decided later this afternoon that I wanted to make some cookies. We don't have chocolate chips but we DO have Nutella. After a quick search, I found an oatmeal Nutella cookie recipe. YESSSSS!
As the oven heats up I'm like "Hey! I should put this stick of butter on this cookie sheet and put it in the oven so it gets a little softer." (You probably know how this is going to turn out)
I get distracted doing other things (no surprise). Suddenly I turn around to see A FIRE IN THE OVEN!
*screech* *scream* *squeal*
I turn off the oven.
"AHHH!!!!!! TREEEEEEEENT!" *more screeching* *Gracie barking*
I'm running around the kitchen looking for a way to put out the flame. I realized at this point that we do not have a fire extinguisher.
My husband flies down the stairs. "WHAT!?!?"
"THE OVEN IS ON FIRE!!!!" (Me, being way too dramatic)
I look at the oven to see the flame is completely gone. WHAT A RELIEF. Then I look at my husband...who is in nothing but his undies and slippers. This is marriage.
Me: "Oh good the fire is out! I just panicked because I didn't know what to do."
Trent: "OH MY GOSH! I thought you were being abducted!!!!"
Me: "No! I just forgot I put butter in there."
And so started the endless amounts of teasing and jokes about me starting fires for stupid reasons.
Trent: "Why would you put butter in there!?"
Me: "I don't know! I thought it would be just a quick little nuke!"
Trent starts laughing. Followed by more jokes, of course. That's what I get for trying to be domestic!
Luckily the oven is in perfectly good condition, the fire alarm didn't go off and I got to make my oatmeal Nutella cookies after a good scrubbing of the oven.
I also got to laugh at the fact that Trent ran down in his skivvies to come defend me against an abductor.
And that's our memorial day.
