This morning before I left for work I put a few chicken breasts in the fridge to defrost.

See, I planned to make Thai Red Chicken Curry for dinner with leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

When I arrived home I discovered the chicken breasts were not defrosted.

Therefore I went with plan b, which was to cook a frozen lasagna.

As I was removing the film, after the pan of goodness had been cooking for 50 minutes, the outer part of my arm made contact with oven. The 375 degree oven door.

A long time has passed since I experienced a cooking related burn. It may be a mild burn but it hurts like the dickens and gives me a greater appreciation for those who suffer second and third degree burns.

In case you are wondering, the lasagna was yummylicious. However, it doesn't make the burn worthwhile.

Excuse me while I go apply another cold wet washcloth and take a couple of ibuprofen.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Not only do burns hurt, but they can scar. I have an ugly one on my forearm from a curling iron. That one was probably 400 degrees. The spilled coffee grounds/hot water only left a little discoloration on my leg. I hope you's fades away to nothing.

Happy Wednesday!

Oh yikes girl. So sorry! Right now I am looking at about 3 mild burn marks on my right hand and arm. I am always burning myself on the oven door and grates. Drinking & cooking don't mix sometimes :)
