On the eve before Xmas - a young scoobette decided to make a for real Xmas cake for the family arriving in the morn to celebrate the day.

She went out and bought all the expensive ingredients
Came home and slaved over the recipe for what seemed like hours
But it was worth it as this Xmas was going to be a good one
And she wanted to impress her family

She popped the cake in the oven, feeling all excited
And waited










And waited 














And waited   













Two hours later, scoobette was wondering why the cake was still raw...  eek  She checked the oven which felt hot. So she














waited


















and waited  eek


















and waited  eek



















another two hours later, she still wondered why it was still raw in the middle.
So she checked all around the oven (pretending she knew what she was doing  )

Then her flatmate came home, walked into the kitchen to see a rather tired and worried scoobette sitting at the kitchen table. Upon hearing the story, the flatmate walked over to the oven and turned the dial from grill to bake
It took another hour and a half  (cake had to be watched like a hawk by that stage) to fully cook.

5 1/2 hours to cook a bloody cake!    Guess who ALWAYS checks the settings on the oven before doing anything now

Oh and there was the time when





















I forgot to put the lid on the food processor....

   I had some lamb shanks in the oven and forgot about them.





















And then I wondered why I could smell smoke, so went into the kitchen and saw there was big flames in the oven  eek



















So I rang CM in a panic and said the oven was on fire and what should I do. 













I turned it off, and opened all the windows and doors to let the smoke out but I was paranoid someone would see the smoke and call the fire brigade 












The oven was stuffed from then on. Cooked the thermostat I think 






















We now own a fire extinguisher  Brought to you by dab

 Christmas are good to make & easy. They say that a person who can makean excellent christmas cake ,can't make a light sponge. (Thats because of the heavy arm, don't forget that we are talking of befor cake mixers.)

I had a mild disaster in the kitchen last night /this morning  . I thought I'd make some porridge in the slow cooker I read the instructions but when I got up this morning it was almost rock hard and all stuck to the bottom of the pot...I had to soak it for ages (for hubby cos he does the brekkie dishes) ...does anyone cook porridge in their slow cooker and if so ..how?
