Living up to my name

I'm not a chef. Let's get that out of the way. I had company over for dinner last week and at the last minute I realized that I hadn't thawed any butter for the bread. (I use butter so infrequently that I store it in the freezer.) Having just cooked a beautiful stuffed pork tenderloin (lovingly prepared by some guy at the grocery store), I figured I would put the stick of butter in the oven as it cooled.

Bad idea. The oven was still really, really hot when I put the butter in it. Of course I didn't bother to use a plate; I just tossed the wrapped stick of butter on the top rack.

And then I completely forgot about it.

Stay tuned for Chapter 2, which tells the story of the next time I preheated the oven...
