Burnt to a crisp...

Baby was napping, I was in the kitchen making a huge bowl (4 batches) of blueberry muffins to give as Christmas gifts.... I mixed it all, poured it into mini muffins pans that were lined with gingerbread men wrappers and popped them into the oven.

Then baby sweet pea woke up and was of course hungry so I fed her, and then burped her, and then was changing her diaper when I smelled a horrible smell... it was getting stronger, what was it. As I stepped into the hallway I could see some smoke coming from the kitchen, My blueberry muffins Ahhhhh...

It was then that I remembered I didn't set the alarm because I didn't want it to go off and wake up the baby, however alarms are there to keep you from forgetting thus case in point.. never cook with out the timer, as a good hour will go by and you will have little lumps of blueberry coal, thats only use would possibly be with the NHL as hockey pucks.

When I nannied I used to set my cell phone alarm on vibrate for however many minutes out I needed, worked great! No obnoxious beeping or buzzing, but I could still bake snacks for when the older kids got home from school.
