Stupid Thing I Just Did

Hey, y'wanna hear something embarrassing and stupid I just did?

REALLY stupid?
Ok. I was baking some pizza rolls for dinner. I used one of those disposable pie-tins and lined it with aluminum foil. Put the pizza rolls in, baked them, took them out, and placed the flimsy disposable tin onto a plastic disposable plate for support (what can I say, I like disposable stuff because I HATE doing dishes.)
So far, so good, right?
Well, then I noticed that some weren't heated all the way through, and decided that they needed to go back in the oven for just a few more minutes.
I went back to my computer and continued blog-surfing. After a few minutes I smelled something strange. I didn't know what it was, and was truly puzzled. Then I realized, to my horror, that I had placed the PLASTIC PLATE in the oven underneath the pie-tin.
A flurry of embarrassingly non-repeatable words were thrown about as I raced to the kitchen and opened the oven door.
Sure enough, the remains of a thin plastic plate were now melted against the oven-rack.
I waited 'til it cooled, and picked it off. Most of it came off in one whole piece.
Good blogger that I am, one of my first G-rated thoughts was "Wow, I gotta blog about this!"
Then I thought, "Wow, I better get some pictures of this melty plate."
So here you go. Enjoy. Feel free to laugh at my expense, for a few (hopefully brief) moments. :)

The question did the pizza rolls taste?

Janna said...

Surprisingly, they tasted just fine! I was worried they'd be contaminated with burnt-plastic fumes, but nope. Nothing icky at all.
Thank goodness!

sorry, i gotta call em as i see em--janna, you're an idiot.

Janna said...

Hey! Be nice!
I'm not an idiot, I'm just occasionally thought-deficient.
Yes, that's the word.
Call me eccentric.
Lovably eccentric.

Classic - It's ART! How many people are so talented they can make a work of art at the same time they make dinner!

I'm surprised I haven't done that, but then I use those Dixie paper plates, so I would start a fire fer shur. I buy those cuz they come in 115 packs. LOL


Christine said...

Cool. Art.

It's like one of those vases you make by melting an old record album over a coffee can....I've got one of those.

Christine said...

Sooooo, the Lee that called you an that Mo's Lee, or are you inundated by friends named Lee?

Have I virtually brushed the sleeve of the mysterious, never-before-seen-in-captivity Lee?

Anonymous said...

LOL Christine.
yes, last night I made Lee read Janna's blog.
and he actually wanted to leave a comment!
we couldn't sign up on Blogger, so he had to leave it anonymously.
he said, "Janna's been bugging me to leave a comment for her, so there ya go."
Isn't he just the sweetest?!?
so, yeah, you've brushed past the reclusive as yet to be revealled Lee.
Although -- SPOILER ALERT --- he does make a cameo in the Friday, October 27th Jannafied Costume post at
It’s A Blog Eat Blog World

Janna said...

Goteeman: Yes! Thank you! See, everyone? It's art! Now how much would people pay if I auctioned it off on E-Bay... "Rare, one-of-a-kind accidental heat-generated sculpture in a red plastic medium..."
Christine: Yeahhhh, that was "THE" Lee. Kinda like a 'bigfoot' sighting, isn't it? :)

A friend's kid threw one of those ziploc containers into my oven once, and I didn't think the fumes would ever go away. How's your kitchen smelling now?
