I'm an accident waiting to happen! The other night I put on some humming bird food to start to boil. I sat down at the computer, wasn't paying attention and next thing I know the house is starting to fill with smoke. I jumped up and my sugar water was a big, black ball of something indescribable!
So I cooled off the pan, opened up the doors and got it mostly out. Of course this was at midnight.
Funny; neither hubby or the boys said a word about the smell the next day. I know there was one; I smelled it!
And, just a minute ago I got what I thought was tea out of the ice box and sucked down a strawful of hummingbird sugar water I had put in the fridge! Now, for someone that drinks diet... :gross:

LOL!!! I'm sure that was INDESCRIBABLE! Next time I go to the fridge, I'll be sure to look before I take a sip!

Last year I tried to make snow candy like they did in the LH books. I overheated it and that molasses and sugar mixture smelled so darn gross. And worse, my mother-in-law ate some. It tasted like a piece of charcoal (I had to try a bit) and she said it wasn't too bad. UGH!
