    I got up and started some wash and checked the computer, all is good so far. I forgot that I put water on to boil and suddenly started to smell something. Grabbed the dry pan off the stove just as it was starting to smoke. Thanks goodness no fire anywhere, not sure about using the pan again, I'll scrub it up and see how it looks.

    Then I got a pumpkin pie together and was putting it into the pre-heated oven. Somehow I pushed the rack wrong and the front tipped up and the pie filling went all down the back of the oven. I got most of it cleaned up, but there is a vent in the back wall and the pumpkin is in the vent openings. I tried to clean it out and can't get it. There are screws in there, so I'm sure it comes off, but I can't move the stove away from the wall and I think I need to unplug it just to be safe. So I guess that when DH gets home he can help me get it unplugged and take off the vent and clean it.

    You didn't really need pumpkin pie for Christmas anyway, right?

    I have done the same thing with Farberware pans on the stove - burned two of them up. The bottoms actually separated from the pan. I hope yours is salvageable, but if not, at least it will be easy to get a new one.

    This is behind you now, so go have a Merry Christmas!

    Good idea, except I'm having fun reading and looking at all the fun stuff on here! Maybe time to head to the craft room!

    years from now...you will look back and laugh at these moments. In the big scheme of things, it's not the things that matter, it your family... So glad you have a DH to help you with the moving of the stove.

    Have a blessed holiday....and go get yourself a pie at the store..lol.

    Oh what an awful mess! I hate having to clean things like that. Hope it's not too difficult to get to. And I've cooked many dry pans before too, so you're not alone there!

    Oh Man, I have burned up my share of tea kettles and those burner covers. Now, I have a flat stove and don't have to worry about the covers and a whistling tea kettle. It took me a long time to learn.
    Merry Christmas.

    Unless your oven is really old, you should have a switch in the electric box to turn off the power to the oven. When I replaced my stove a couple years ago, I had to have that line put in so that the stove could be "plugged in" instead of direct wired to the electric box.

    This was a wonderful day. I had to go to Joann. Yes I had to go. My DH bought me the Go. But forgot to ask about the mats. They don't come with the die you have to buy them. Then I went to the ATM for some cash.On the way home I seen a garage sale. So thought I had time to stop. She didn't have to much to sell.BUT I seen this black/brown case. I ask what was in it. She said just a old sewing machine. I ask to look at this."OMG" it was a old singer. I ask her how much she was asking. She said $10.00 "OMG" again to myself.Sure am happy I went to the ATM.So when I got home ask the DH to come to my truck. "It was so heavy" I
    I jumped on the board to email Eddie he told me to email Lostn51.I did. This is what he told me I bought for $10.00
    Singer 99 only 10,000 allotted Birthday August 19,1924.and she runs.Will call the man that fixes my other 2 machines. I will post pictures of her later.
    What a wonderful day it has been for me.
    Merry Christams everyone.Have a wonderful New Year

    Here's to a better day - just roll with the flow and enjoy yourself. Some one once said to be like the rock that stands firm, but personally I think it would be better to be like the water that flows over and around the rock and gets to see more things.
