As you know by now, I cook.
I cook a really lot!
Thats why I find this mystery so disturbing.
The past several times I used my oven, I noticed that it was smoking slightly.
Each time, I would remember.. "Oh! something spilled in the bottom of the oven, I need to clean it tomorrow."
Well I never remembered until I would heat the oven up again and would smell a faint smoke smell.
Last night we had tacos for dinner.
I crisp my taco shells by hanging them on the wire racks in my oven, It works great and they just hang there! They do not go flat like on a cookie sheet and I can cook a TON at once.
I pulled out the top oven rack to begin inverting my taco shells.
Sitting on the back of my top oven rack, I found THIS!
The boys think it kinda looks like a pile of cow poop.
It is now a nice crispy charcoal lump.
I know what it is.
and I am ashamed to admit that It originally made it's way into the oven on Christmas morning.
So.... my wise internet friends?
What did I find in my oven?
I'll figure out some silly little insignificant prize for the winner.
(I'll randomly choose a name out of the correct guesses Sunday evening.)
