Another reason why I have been a little bit quiet… I had an issue with my stove.
A few weeks back, while attempting to fry some green plantains for making tostones, my stove had a short circuit and the burner I was using exploded. Yes… it exploded!!! I was extremely lucky I was not hurt in any way. Not even a drop of oil got on me. I can’t say the same for the kitchen walls or floor.
Look at the hole the short circuit made on the pan I was using… you have seen this pan before in many other pictures. It’s a Jamie Oliver collection T-Fal. Look at the HOLE it made!!!!
The moral of the story???? Please, buy a fire extinguisher for your kitchens. I didn’t have one and I wished I had one at the time.
My mom was with me at home when this happened and being a true mom, she “prohibited” me from using that stove again. We went to Sears that evening to get a new one. You’ll get to see it soon in upcoming posts… it’s really cute with a glass top. No more regular burners here…
