I decided since I was going to stay home I would make Mr L. some fresh chicken cutlets which I haven’t made for him in a long time.. So I breaded the cutlets after I fileted the chicken breasts.
Next I put some Olive Oil in the pan, let it get nice and hot before adding the cutlets.. All is going fine at this point. Looks and smells delicious too!
Enter………….the baking soda!! Can you imagine why?
I lifted the pan with the cutlets cooking in the oil and somehow I spilled hot oil on my hot stove burner and poof! Fire! My cook top was on fire!.
I have never set a fire in my kitchen. And no I didn’t get a photo of it!! Don’t think I did not think about capturing one before I put it out though..
Yes I am over the edge with blogging, obviously. Thankfully I was able to stamp it out real quick with of all things a paper towel..My husband then taught me about using baking soda for things like this.. I was a wreck..I am terrified of fire and there it was staring me in the face, in my home, on my stove and I SET IT!.
Once the little fire was out and my nerves calmed down and my hands stopped shaking I proceeded to make a double layer chocolate cake for desert..
After the drama and everything was done cooking I spent the rest of the day relaxing. Bailey and Onyx took the opportunity to relax with me too!..
Have you ever started a fire while cooking in your kitchen?… What did you do on Sunday?
