  3. Just a little cracked pepper thanks. And I'll have the caramelised placemat for dessert.

  4. It was a craft experiment, right? LOL :-)

  5. So, what happened?

    I too saw your label, and thought I would check to see if there were any more entertaining posts such as this.

    Are you planning more???!

  6. I second the 'what the?' comment. I can only imagine that you put the chopping board in the oven- nah, not one's that silly, are they? heehee

  7. Hehehehe.... I thought for a moment you had been dipping your toe into the field of modern art...!
    (...for if you were, that would be a very acceptable piece; perhaps titled 'The Human Condition'...)

  8. You do have a way with using your cooking things in an unconventional way. Better stick to crafting! :o) Happy New Year.

  9. Hey!...wait...isn't that 'Post Post Modernist' Sculpture!!
    I saw the like at the Gallery..worth a fortune....

  10. "Carmelized placemat" bwahahaha!

    Oh, sorry.

    Um. Isn't there ANY possible way to blame this on a man? Because at my house, that would be a given. :)

    Thanks for the laugh at your expense, Jodi.

  12. hahaha I melted one too! Argh, I must admit it was kind of fun playing with the plastic as it cooled off though, really weird!

    Check mine out:

  13. That IS a Nigella recipe. It's called 'melted blue jumbly hands with Sumac.' It is served with cous cous and pomegranate seeds. I can't say I've tried it though.

  14. You want fries with that???? lol
    Hugs,
    Joy :o)

  16. Been there done that...although mine was a plastic children's plate. And ahem..its been more than once so don't feel too bad!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow, is that really what happens if you put it in the oven? By the way, why was it in there in the first place??

    ReplyDelete
  18. OMG does this mean you don't have to cook anymore??? Because if it does, I have a great yellow cutting board I'd like to vaporise!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ah, such a delicious smell! NOT! Tehehehe, how did that happen then?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Onion sauce with mine please!

    Off to make Parsley now.

    The elephant, not the sauce.

  21. I am sure this dish also filled your kitchen with its unique smell?!
    Oh dear.

    ReplyDelete
  22. And what word popped out of your mouth when you first smelled it??

    ReplyDelete
  23. Alas, I too, have BTDT. Although mine included an entire stack of dirty dishes I had tucked away to deal with later. Doh! My silverware has never been the same.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yikes! I seem to be prone to turning on the burner the cookbook is always sitting on! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  25. I wish I had a dollar for each household item that "we" in our household have melted when turning on the wrong burner. (Why do we have things on our burners that are not meant to withstand the heat? Begs the question, doesn't it?) Let's just say that I live with my DH and 3 teenage boys, on good days, it's like living in a frat house, and on bad days, a locker room.

  26. Quick, call Doctor Who, there's a dalek got out of it's pepperpot!

    I agree with Curlypops - back to the Craft room for you, young lady!!

    My friend Jackie has a husband to do the cooking for her... otherwise she'd starve. I suggest you get darling daughter to cook and you do the craftwork!

  27. Even though it's a mess, it actually looks pretty cool :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ha ha ha ha ...that was entertaining!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I first thought you had created an oven baked playdough recipe or something..... oh Jod, you are a cracker!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Uhhh, major Uh oh! ...but if this is the worst you do this year, it should be a marvelously creative year.

    All the best for 2010

  32. bet it was very tasty! and my secret word was 'mested' good word for what you did!

    ReplyDelete
  33. HILARIOUS!!! Reminds me of the scene in Bridget Jones Diary where she creates a beautiful blue soup with blue string!!! Hmmmmm Yummmmmeeeeee

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh no! It's THE BLOB!!! Run before it absorbs you!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Haha Jodie you are such a dag! Pity I know you are also a great cook!! When are we going to catch up for a sewing day?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh dear, sure that has happened to the best of chefs!! How frustrating to clean that up, did you have to cut the plastic from the wire?? I don't think our Army issue oven would fair so well. Love Posie

    ReplyDelete
  37. I think it's a given that from now on all invitations to dinner at your place will be refused! My two worst things were a plastic spatula dropping onto the dishwasher element while it was on - took ages to get rid of the pong - and do not ever make microwave salt dough; it burns and stinks the place out.Thanks for the laugh, Jodie!

    ReplyDelete
  38. HahaHA! As someone who once melted the 1/4 teaspoon magnetic measure (which means I can't measure 1/4 teaspoons any more, SO annoying) I sympathise, but also want to know if, like me, you smelt the burning plastic toxic smell, but failed to act on it for another 5-10 minutes because your brain couldn't quite compute what it could possibly be, by which time it was all Too Late.

    ReplyDelete
  39. And i thought i was a bad cook!, lol, I don't know where to start! the event or the posts! all are just great. I agree, Forget the kitchen, back to the craft room where you belong. Love you. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  40. LOL! I hope the fumes and smell was not too much with that little accident.
    What a way to start the new year!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm trying not to giggle. Honest I am!!!

    Actually at first I thought it was just your way of creating something new and wonderful and you were giving us sneak peeks.....roflmol.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Once I roasted the plastic handle of a knife right in with the chicken. It was a swirly black similar mess. We still ate a lot of the chicken though! Probably poisoned the whole family!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi jodie,
    I did something similar at work once...forgot to turn off the steriliser oven...it was on for the whole week-end. Still at least it didn't burn the place down. Lucky me huh LOL

    ReplyDelete
  44. oops forgot to say happy New Year
    Hugs,Sharon

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh Jodie!!

    Well I love your label and there's my first real belly laugh of 2010!!
    What's next? giggle...

    Thanks for the laugh!

  46. Was the air as blue as the (used to be) board ?

    ReplyDelete
  47. That made me feel a little queasy!

    I'll just have another beer!

    ReplyDelete
  48. That's a fantastic looking alien blob. It even has a mouth.

    Also don't hide gifts in the oven thinking no one will look in there because no one cooks with the oven. Eventually, someone will ...

    ReplyDelete
  49. Sigh. I've done the exact same thing. Mine was purple. This brings back memories -- thanks for sharing your pain. :)

    Meanwhile, it's a lesson you only have to learn once. I've never stored anything in the oven since!

    Happy New Year!

  50. Gelukkig Nieuw Jaar!!!
    Looks a bit like the blue soup Brigit made in Brigit Jones Diaries (O:

    ReplyDelete
  51. I don't think the kids will come at eating blue chopping board. I heard they only like the pink ones!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Don't you just LOVE the aroma of melted plastic in the morning!? Its a wonder you weren't asphixiated (sp?) in the process!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ha HA did the same thing with a knife and because I am such a domestic goddess and have such a clean oven couldn't see it hiding up the back of the oven. Ever time I used the oven I got this horrid smell after a few times decided reluctantly to clean the oven(not my most fav job) and found the blade and a pile of black plastic. Shame though it was one of my fav knives.

    ReplyDelete
  54. OH my word. just the fumes alone must have nearly asphyxiated you. I once melted an aluminum pot in college. Also I have cooked a plastic spoon, and you wouldn't believe the nauseating smell. Just thinking about it makes my stomach roll. I probably lost quite a few brain cells that I couldn't afford to lose. Sorry about the oven.

Hellloooooo !!!!
