"NOBODY PANIC!"


...just a small stove top fire....everything will be under control...I think.
Well, it all started with some grease that had spilled in the catch under the burner. I was on the phone with Brian who was telling me that he in fact won't be able to make it home for dinner or the revival service (we have revival this week).
I was trying to make sure that dinner would be ON THE TABLE as soon as he walked in so we could be on time for church. Why do bad things always happen all at once? No sooner had I hung up the phone when I heard the sickening sound of something bursting into flames. I turned to see my pot of green beans engulfed in flames...
I thought "Oh, maybe it will just burn out"...nope..it got bigger, and I started to worry about all the electronics in the stove top. I got the fire extinguisher...(came with house LOL) and could not believe I was going to have to use it. I sprayed it once, and it went out for a half a second then burst into flames again!! I fired a second time and put it out...that is what that all yellow stuff is (yellow stuff...very technical terminology right?). I did not have time to clean it up before we left for church...I wonder what Brian thought when he saw it? :) I guess it adds up...Pregnant blonde girl in the kitchen with 3 little ones running around...husband is not home to supervise...yeah it could have been worse.
