Okay.. there is a running joke in our house..."mom isn't done cooking until she's set off the fire alarm." Its true, my kids dont even flinch when the annoyingly loud alarm blares through the house. Im almost afraid that they wont exit a burning building, they will just think someone left something in the oven a little too long. Common talk at our house when we sit down to eat is:
Me: I kinda toasted a couple of tortillas a little too long
Big Jorge: Ah, just the way i like it
Me: The garlic bread is a little....
Big Jorge: Just the way I like it??
Me: Sorry babe, but don't get the rice on the bottom of the pan..its a little..
Big Jorge: just the way I like it!
You get the point. But let me just warn you that nothing and I mean NOTHING stinks up your house quite as much as Frijoles (beans) that are burnt. And it always surprises me at how quickly it can burn. And forget about taking the ones just off the top.. it scorches the whole pot. thus I got to make a trip to Publix with both kiddos to get more beans. So, FYI, don't burn the beans!
