I was going to write another road trip series today, but then I realized it is Friday. Friday should be all about relaxation and laughter, so I think I’ll do another LP.
This was me fooling around with a plate that was missing the center. So… what happened to the plate?
Well, you know, we were just beginning to learn how to use the conventional oven that was attached in our apartment’s kitchen. Before this, the only oven that we knew back in Malaysia was the microwave oven. So you can understand our excitement to learn how to use a real oven.
The problem was, we did not know what kind of materials are oven safe. We presumed anything that was microwave safe would be oven safe. That’s why we put ceramic plates such as this one into the oven. To make matters worse, we thought it was alright to immediately take the plate out of the oven once cooking was done. After all, that’s what we did when using the microwave.
So, the above picture was the end result of the two blunders. Using the wrong type of plate, AND THEN not giving time for the plate to cool down a little before removing it from the oven.
Lucky for us, instead of cracking into pieces, the plate broke off perfectly like above. Perfect for us to use it to fool around…
By the way, the internal edge of the plate was sharp, we could have ended up with a bloody accident due to our stupidity, fooling around. So, kids, DO NOT try this at home! Mommy will be so worried and angry if you do this and you might end up having to to suffer ear twisting or force fed with hardened French loaf.
Do this at grandma’s house when mommy is not around!
