Disaster Kitchen strikes again.
Note to self. When cooking bratwurst, remember to poke holes in them with a fork before they've been in boiling water for fifteen-twenty-forty-dunno minutes. The resulting jets of hot grease shooting out everywhere are 1) alarming, 2) bewilderingly long-ranged, and 3) tend to burst into flames when they hit hot stove elements.

Surprisingly, despite the presence of actual (though thankfully brief) flames, the smoke detector did not go off. I suspect it may have gone into reverse in self-defense after the past several years of coping with my cooking skills. Also, I managed to not get sprayed with hot grease myself, although the stove, counter, floor, mustard bottle and sauerkraut jar did not have such an easy fate.

Aside from all that, if you ever want to see an imitation of the dancing fountains in front of the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas done in hot grease and fire, just ask me to boil some bratwurst.

But really, don't. O.o

I want to see large fountains of grease and flame but I want to up it and see it done to music ;)
Ya, that's the ticket

Choreography would be asking a bit much I think. XD

This is another reason I shouldn't cook on days like today. I put those things in the pot straight from the freezer when I got in, spent an unknown amount of time spinning down on the internet before I remembered the blasted things, then went and jabbed them with a fork, hoping for catharsis but getting pyrotechnics.

Don't worry, you're not alone in kitchen disasters. Mom tried to light a pan on fire last week, and I have exploded things in the microwave more than once. Happens to the best of us when things go horribly wrong elsewhere.

*sporfle* oh, kitchen shenanigans. I have a migrating scar that started with kitchen shenanigans... (well, it had help.) I expect LOTS of kitchen shenanigans in a few years when the kitten is old enough to want to "help".

You have a few years in advance to stockpile "help-proof" recipes then!

(I haven't had coffee yet and confusedly thought you were referring to a cat XD)
