Burnt offerings

You know that really good recipe that you make all the time?  It’s so easy.  And only has four ingredients?  It’s so quick and easy that you could make it in your sleep?

I thought I did, too.

It is quick. And easy. And only has four ingredients. It’s so quick and easy that I can make it in my sleep.

Except the last time I made it.

I forgot that the TOTAL nuking time was three minutes. A minute and a half for Part I and another minute and a half for Part II.  Not three minutes for Part I and another three minutes for Part II.


Nope Part I got the entire three minutes in the microwave.


And burnt to a crisp.


A special kind of burnt crispness that took a full seven days of soaking and soaking and more soaking to remove the offensive burnt-on goodness.
