Then I smelled burned food! This couldn't be right... only seconds had passed! Got the pizza out of the oven - it was black alright.

I blamed the stupid timer, until I realised I had set it for 10 hours and not 10 minutes... Geeze!
You have absolutely no idea how thrilled I was to read your post.........I thought that I was the only one to do that sort of thing.

When I think back on some of the dumb things I've done in my lifetime I literally cringe.

Cheers.
