Don't even ask what i was searching for when i came across this pict...

OK, the original search was for images of "Atomic Cat" (i had a feeling you didn't want to know.) But when i saw this i thought of TFL.


The good news is i may be baking again soon. Sweety Face has decided she wants lasagna and baked mac n cheese, so we are shopping for a large toaster oven. i told here it has to have enough room for "oven spring". Don't bother to send Wal*mart adds, we are in the Philippines.

I think I'll make a nice printout of this picture, and when I have a real bad baking/cooking/working day, I'll look at it and tell myself how things could be much, much worse....


 


just to think about what it takes to clean this oven up, makes me shiver....

I know right now that the loaf I just put in is not going to look the way I wanted. This reminds me it sure could be worse!


 


And...Nuclear Pizza would be a good name for a band.

1.  Prepare your favorite pizza as usual


2.  Put it in the oven without benefit of a sheet pan or baking stone.


3.  Allow 5 - 8 minutes for it to fail in the center.


4.  Get out of the kitchen, perhaps go fishing for a while, before your wife sees what you've done to her oven.

I like doing my nails and talking on the phone while my pizza bakes... I get the same effect.  LOL

David,


Adhering to the strict requirements of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN), the only allowed ingredients are 00 flour, San Marzano (plum) tomatoes, all natural fior-di-latte or bufala mozzarella, fresh basil, salt, yeast and weapons-grade plutonium.

Thanks for the ingredient list, but I'm having difficulty sourcing the last item. There is a vendor from North Korea, but the only consumer review is in Farsi, and my Farsi is rusti.

Try checking with brother Glenn.  Perhaps Tasha might have a Persian friend who could help.

However, I don't believe Tasha has any Persian friends, or feline friends, for that matter. AFAIK, Tasha only associates with her live-in help.

Tasha does not have anything that one would call a friend.  She has her staff, visitors (all candidates for staff positions) and her adversaries (the feather thing on a stick being the vilest of all).

She would not like your recipe, Steve, as it has no food in it (aka meat).  She is something of an expert on meat.  She could, doubtless, tell you the half life of pepperoni.  If you wanted to know.  And offered her half the pepperoni.

If I gave her half my pepperoni, then I would already know its half-life!

That's why I have a removable silicone sheet on the bottom of my oven! I have spilled pizza a couple times while I am trying to get the hang of my new pizza peel.


That sure is funny.

such a vortex can happen!  Partially frozen and not completely baked dough?  


What kind of black hole is living in the bottom of the oven?  What do the physicists have to say?

Hiya Mini,


i'm gonna hijack my own thread!


Like i said in the OP, we will be looking for a large toaster oven in the near future. SweetyFace wants lasagna, and i am looking forward to baking real again. We don't have room for a full sized range here in the Philippines. i will be gleaning all i can from your posts real soon, but any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,


pakrat

Two different ovens.  I think of a toaster oven as having the inside height of maybe 4 or 5 inches.  Soon too small.  Go for a small oven you can get a lidded casserole into.  Somewhere in the neighborhood of at least 8 inches tall inside and 12" wide.  The biggest problem you have in the Philippines is your power supply.  A small oven can be had for under $50 you just have to look carefully.  Make a little list of what you like in an oven and have your tape measure handy.  I also warn about ovens with shiny bottoms, bad sealing doors and no safety features like a timer controlled on/off switch.   There have been some real nice new ones lately so check around.  


How long you plan on using it makes a big difference.  If you're going to bake a lot of bread for the next few years, it's worth it to look for one that makes steam also even if it costs a little bit more, the seals are better and so is the insulation.  Make sure the steam oven goes up to 250°C, many of them don't.  I don't like lights at the top middle of the oven, they tend to burn more food than light it up.  A mirror or a flashlight works too to look into the oven.  


If you're prone to brown outs and electrical fall outs, you might think LPG. Put a hole in the wall for the gas line to come into the kitchen leaving the tank outside your cooking area with a brick wall between-- safety wise a smart thing to do.  Make sure your oven matches the type of gas you plan to use.  


That's all that comes to mind for now.

Hope it's a self-cleaning oven.  Looks like it needed a good cleaning anyway!

Imagine if the grease tube had oozed itself onto the coil instead of millimeters next to it - *kaboom!*

Isn't that when the singular dense mass of matter exploded into zillions of little pizzas?

That is hilarious!


It also makes yesterday's bread brick into just a minor mishap.

Such a beautiful pizza. I wonder what the half life is on the oven?
