Yeah...I can hardly stand myself.  Wanna know what happens when you bake a chicken in the oven covered with Saran Wrap instead of aluminum foil?  First, you wander around wondering who is burning tires in their back yard.  Then...the fire alarm goes off and the dog gets so scared he pees on the floor.  Then the smoldering plastic stench oozes from the crack in the oven door.  Finally, you get what has happened.  THEN, when you take out this incredible example of food prepared by a chimpanzee, the Hubby says..."That's okay...we'll just scrape it off!  Uh...I don't think so!
This is what happens when a fibromite is used to cooking in the microwave.  Gotta love that hubby though.  He was determined to save it but I'm not looking forward to a bowel obstruction so I passed.

Wow Donna!! That's a gastronomic experience I think I'll pass up this time. Your description was enough for me...lmbo I do know that you can bake frozen pizza with that cardboard circle still on the bottom and it actually comes out quite nicely. The crust is done but not rock hard. ;-)

Oh no! I've never baked with saran, but I did put a huge roll of it under the heat lamps at work. Let me tell you, it didn't take long to melt through.

You do have a wonderful, understanding hubby.  I hope he didn't eat any of that.  If he did, he is a brave soul!

Of course we all have cooked a turkey with the giblet packet left in the neck space.  That's always fun to discover...especially on Thanksgiving!

I think the Thanksgiving turkey with the giblet package is a right of passage. I think every member of my family has cooked their first solo turkey and forgot about the giblet package. My daughter grew up hearing our stories and swore she wouldn't make that mistake.

Well, last Thanksgiving was her first time (we were sleeping at Best Buy for Black Friday) and, sure enough, she forgot to take out the giblet package. She pulled out the stuff from the neck but didn't know there would be more stuff in the other opening.

My husband won a turkey last year so I decided to cook it around Christmas time. I let it thaw in the fridge and then put it in the sink to remove the wrapping. I cut into the wrapper and the turkey started oozing a thick, brown fluid unlike anything I've ever seen come out of a bird. I ran out of the kitchen because I've watched way too much sci-fi. My first thought is "toxic waste" or maybe an alien takeover of the poultry population. It turned out to be a gravy packet. I never knew you could buy turkeys with a gravy packet under the plastic. Next time, I'll read the directions!

Oh, Donna, I did the exact same thing last week with leftover steak that I put under the broiler. Luckily I remembered just as it began to burn, but the smell on the meat was still gross so I had to ditch it. I do the pizza-box-thing all the time. <sigh>

And this is why I stay out of the kitchen. devil   The oozing brown stuff would have sent me running too. I have bought hams with glaze mix but never a turkey with gravy.
I turned the oven on to preheat one time with a store bought angel food cake in it, oh what a smell.
I tried to get my DIL to turn my oven on and clean it while we were on vacation cause it hasn't been cleaned since we moved here over 4 yrs ago and it smells so bad I can't stand it. She didn't do it either.
luv and hugs
