The art of burnt toast....
I excel in this art form.
I forget that I have actually put something in our broken toaster oven. As you can see, we have a knob broken off, plus the timer inside takes way longer than needed to turn off.
So what do we do?
We use these pliers to turn it on,
then plug it in, wait for the toast to finish and unplug it. Usually, about 15 minutes later, you hear the ding even though you have already eaten your toast, washed the dishes and have moved onto something else.
My problem is that I get involved in something else and forget that the bread is in there. Did you know that bread can actually catch on fire? Well, I do :)
Here is the first try from this morning. See the smoke?
Then the second was about the same (yes, I know... how could I let it happen again! but really, it was so quick to burn the second time!)
Finally, my breakfast. 3rd time is the charm right?!
These fruit on my plate look a lot like tomatoes, but they are called Caqui. They are a delicious, juicy, sweet fruit that I have seen nowhere else but here.
Hope your breakfast was a little simpler than mine! Buen provecho!
