It's not even Thanksgiving yet and I've already had a screw-up in the kitchen.
This year, so I wouldn't have to make more than one trip to the grocery store, I wrote up my shopping list and checked several times to make sure I wasn't missing anything. Off to the store I went and got all my supplies.
A few days later, I decided to bake something in the oven and pre-heated it. After about 10 minutes, it started smelling like burning paper. I ran over to the oven and right before I opened the oven door, I realized what it was. See, when I was putting the groceries away a few days prior, I had decided to put the foil baking pan in the oven with the oven bags in it because I didn't have any room in the pantry and didn't want to leave them on the kitchen counter. Yep - I had forgotten to take them out of the oven before I pre-heated it. I had a feeling that might happen. Hmmph.
At first, I wasn't sure if the bags were affected. I mean, they had only been pre-heated for about 10 minutes. I couldn't remember what they looked like. As you can see in the picture below, the non-baked bags on the left are still clear. And the baked oven bags on the right had a brown-ish tint.
So, off to the store I had to go. Again. Thanksgiving can only get better from here, right? :)
