Wednesday I was making supper, and I needed to think of what to have for a vegetable. I decided on Caesar Salad, and I was thinking (out loud ;D ) "Too bad I don’t have time to make croutons for it". The last few times when I have made croutons, I have the oven on around 200º and bake them for at least an hour, if not more. So, I thought if I put the oven on a higher temperature, maybe 400º or so, and check them more often, that it might work and we could have croutons with our salad!
Leah was teasing me that my croutons would be black, I just laughed it off and went to go start them.
I had them in the oven that’s in the garage, and Isaiah had gone outside through the garage. I thought I smelled something burning, so after a little bit I went to go check on them…..this is what I saw when I opened up the oven door……plus lots of smoke.
It was pretty funny, especially since Leah said that they would be black! And black they were….I heard someone say that they were like coal. I hadn’t checked on them as much as I had planned, so as you have probably guessed, we did not have croutons with our Caesar Salad.
It’s a good thing ( well, maybe its not good, but for this it was good) we don’t have a smoke detector in our garage….or else it would of been going off like crazy! Although if we did have one in the garage, and it was going off like crazy, we would probably have pulled the battery out. The garage smelled like burned something and it was filled with smoke for awhile. Poor Daddy, when he came home he looked in the oven ( who wouldn’t when the garage is filled with smoke, and it smells like burned something, and it’s coming from the oven! ). I hope he didn’t lose his appetite at the sight of them!
Something else that was funny–while I was making supper (pizza), Jessica told me that it smelled like Fazoli’s. Later when you could smell the burned croutons, she said "Cassia, it smells like Fazoli’s on fire!"
So thus concludes my story!
