Beware leaving Pop-Tarts unattended in the toaster.

Or you might just find yourself racing through a thick, smoke-filled house to extinguish raging flames, armed only with a nearby happy snowman dish towel.

Thankful for the little Ian voice coming from near the kitchen that said, "Why is the house filled with smoke and fog?"

Thankful that happy snowman did the trick.

Thankful only my toaster and a small portion of my kitchen went up in flames today, and not my entire house.


What's cookin' in your kitchen tonight? We'll be microwaving our Pop-Tarts from now on.


  1. Oh bummer :(
    I can't tell you have many pots I have ruined because I boiled the water out and started to melt the Teflon. Accidents happen. Hang in there!!

  2. Scary time for you! I'm glad it wasn't any worse than that. Guardian Angel at work!

  3. This is so scary. Your mind can't help but wonder what could have been. SO thankful you are all okay.

  4. I am so glad the snowman put out the small fire...scary to think what might have happened!!!

  5. I left a tortilla in the toaster oven too long and it caught fire. I feel your pain!

  6. Oh man. I'm SO sorry. I hope it cleans up okay. what a PAIN

  7. oOOOOOOHHHHHH, man. I am so thankful you are all okay. {Hugs}.


    Who likes poptarts anyway.
