I'm a pathetic cook
I'm trying to cook a frozen pizza and when I went to pre-heat the oven I realized that I couldn't remember how to work my stove. :dunce:

I've lived here for 8 months and I can only remember using the stove one other time. I'm only using it now because we are in the middle of a blizzard right now and I don't want to leave the house to get something to eat.

1. You think that's bad?
I hate the annoyance of taking off those little stickers from the fruit I buy.

2. Eh, leave them on there. Adds fiber.

3. A candle and a trivet might work.
:shrug:

4. Don't want to leave the house?
How long has the pizza been in the freezer? Did you buy it, or was it left there by previous tenants? Pizzas get petrified (or mummified) over time.

You can probably grill the pizza outside. Even in a blizzard, a fire in a grill will work fine.

Bon Apetit!

:hi:

5. No I just bought it yesterday :)
I eventually worked out how to drive the stove. I kind of wish I hadn't now. The pizza might have tasted better frozen.

6. I once forgot to take the cardboard circle off the pizza before I baked it.
It tasted a little... odd.

7. I'm surprised it didn't catch on fire!

BTW, cardboard contains a lot of fiber. So that would counter-act all of the cheese on the pizza. :hurts:

10. I preheated the oven once
with a nesting set of tupperware mixing bowls IN it..

Looked like psychedelic cheese dripping from the racks..

8. Well, I can top that - try putting dinner in the oven;
going back 25 minutes later only to realize I'd forgotten to turn the bloody thing on!


:wow:


It's a good thing I never make pancakes...

9. They're called sandwiches
And they're a boon to reluctant cooks. I've even heard of a new invention called the salad...

Whatever you do, don't do what my son does. The smoke alarm is not meant to be used as an oven timer.
