Helpful Household Tip

So, the next time you find yourself lying in bed trying to take a nap at 5:00pm and you get a craving for fried cauliflower (who craves fried cauliflower anyway?), I do NOT recommend you do the following:
  • Do not fill your small pot almost all the way up with oil.
  • Do not then heat this oil on the very highest setting
  • Do not then dump a large amount of battered cauliflower into this very hot oil

If you do these things, you may end up having the oil instantly boil over, spilling ALL over your smoothtop range onto other heated elements. This may cause you to fear that your stove will soon catch fire. If your stove does catch fire, it's best if you are wearing a shirt so that you can run outside quickly. If your stove does not catch fire, you will still wind up with a house FULL of smoke.

You have been warned.

I'm glad you're ok though. I'm going to imagine this situation with you in a shirt because, the other I don't know if I want to have burned into my head right now.

Let me also tell you that I absolutely love the new picture of Jarrod and you on here. You look absolutely gorgeous in it!!
