I will start with, I am an insomniac. I have not actually slept decent since I was a small child. So I do stuff at night. House work, baking, posting on here...you know. So anyway, last night I decided to make some caramel, as I learned on the sweetened condensed milk thread. That stuff is amazingly good, BTW. I started the cans (2 of them) boiling and started doing other stuff. Since it has to boil a few hours I just checked it every now and then. Then I decided to kick back and read some stuff on here, etc. Next thing I know, I hear a horrible noise and wake to smoke everywhere. The pan boiled dry, the cans exploded and they were burning!!!! Got the smoke alarm to stop screaming, opened all the doors and windows except the kids rooms. Thankfully, since I had been still awake and with all the lights on their doors were shut and their rooms didn't fill with smoke. The entire kitchen is covered with this sticky black and tan goo. We have vaulted ceilings and it goes all the way to the highest point. I cleaned the floor and some of the cabinet doors. Gonna work on more later....I have a headache and think I want to sleep for a few minutes first. Just wanted to share and here are couple of pics....sorry, crappy cell phone pics...it was all I was up for.
