I had a small fire in my oven this morning. Nothing drastic, and it was out within a few minutes … but it totally freaked my daughter out. (Ok, maybe me too.)
Oven fires happen. Certain things make oven fires more likely to happen … like, say… maybe having forgotten to clean the oven for many months.
Martha Stewart I certainly am not, but this house-chore-left-undone was a fun little wake-up call. It was a brilliant reminder that things like crap hidden inside the bottom of an oven can be only be forgotten about for so long … until the consequences of doing so literally blow up in your face.
