My wife just made some tv cookies. In case you don't know what these are exactly, in this case they were cut and bake peanut butter cookies placed in the toaster-broiler to bake, after which she went into watch tv. She forgot the cookies and they burned. That's when I started coughing while wondering what that awful smell was. By the time we figured out it was cookies burning, the house was filled with smoke, I was coughing so I could not speak. The smoke alarms in our house were sounding off, one after the other. I had to vacate the premeses. Sometime I can eat some of the tv cookies if not burned too bad, most often though they have to be tossed out. These were more like charcoal and had to be tossed. The good wife's intentions were good and I hope she bakes some more, but tv cookies are becoming more and more the rule and not the exception. But that's okay as long as our fire insurance is good.
