Ok well that's your house. Guessing from the way she did not check, that most likely does not happen in her house and therefore was not her fault. The oven? Really? To hide an easter basket? I am sorry but that's a dumb place to put it. And i'll most likely get thumbed down but idk it just does not seem like her fault. She would have checked it if things were normally in her oven.
Well this doesn't really matter because it is said and done, and it was just a suggestion. People do things on the whim all the time, I understand that but she should have expected the unexpected. I don't care if I get shit for this. Checking it probably would have been the responsible thing to do.
No you're right, the OP should have checked the oven before turning it on. That's one of the first rules of cooking in a place where more than one person uses the facilities. When I lived with my parents they used to put skillets of grease or pizza in the oven. Hopefully the OP has learned for next time.
That's awesome :) but like i said my family used drawers and doesn't dry in the oven. We put stuff in the oven when we're cooking it and my easter basket would go on my dresser in my room :) so I guess I never needed to learn that rule :) my bad. But I'll stick with drawers and towels :) have fun being super dangerous and putting things in something made for cooking :) dont forget to check your microwave too, never know when someone might have put their Pot or pan in it because they needed to store it somewhere :)
It's the whole hiding Easter eggs and baskets thing people do. It was her fault she turned the thing on in the first place, an her parents fault for putting it there. No need to get super personal, it was a suggestion, and a good one at that. I thought you said you didn't mean to be rude or critical. This is kind of slamming how baking or cooking should be done. Sorry.
No I'm saying that y'all shouldn't be telling people what to do in their own homes. I am not saying to not check your ovens, if you want to have at it but don't get on people cases who don't do it because they don't have to normally. I was giving y'all an example of a house (with four people) that doesn't have to check. Maybe OP lives in a house like mine :) just a thought so really her mom deserved it not her.
I'd have to agree that this isn't entirely their fault. 'Just the way she likes them.' To me, that infers that she usually cooks for her mom (or it could be another family member who does, just my guess) and, as used to cooking, it's routine to just immideately preheat. Just my thought but I'm probably looking too far into it. lol
Redmane I sure hope nothing unfortunate ever happens in your world. If something does and you feel sorry for yourself, you're going to be eating from a bowel of hypocrisy. It seems insanely cynical to suggest that OP honestly deserves to have his/her Easter present fried because OP was trying to do something nice for his/her mother. But I guess by the number of thumbs up and support you have you're not the only one! Happy Easter though right!?
Other than the fact that if she lived in a house like your she most likely would have checked it because she would have been used to things in the oven but she was not and her easter basket was baked as a result. 119 is right and that is what I meant by saying you're 'suggestion' was mean considering what happened. But I guess people who use their ovens for storage or drying dishes just don't understand that some don't and therefore don't need to check.
I love how everyone is just adding more about using their appliances for storage but it does not change the fact that not everyone does. If you do, it would be to stupid not to check. But if you do not it is unnecessary. I just do not understand how y'all do not get this. It's a pretty simple idea to understand. Check your ovens, I don't care. But I am not stupid for not doing it considering nothing is stored in my oven, ever. And it was not OP's fault because she most likely does not have to either and this was a freak accident.
PaulB123 - I'm sorry, unfortunate things have happened to me. Not just breakups and crap like that. Like death of a parent from a terminal disease type things. Am I eating from a "bowel of hypocrisy"? No, I'm not drowning in shit. And if that's what you picked up from those four words in my comment, you my friend are the cynical one.
That's actually a cool idea, my family has never hidden their baskets, we hid eggs with candy in them and do a whole search after our baskets, but we've never searched for our baskets - I'll have to suggest this. Tit for tat - we use different coloured eggs and per each colour there is one shiny one appropriately deemed the "money egg" and there's everything from $2 - $20 dollars in one, then we pick our colours randomly and go searching, how much money you get is in the luck of the draw. (this may potentially work better with at least three searching kids, me I'm an only child but I have nine cousins and they reproduce so the number is well and high, therefore decreasing the issues behind how much money you got as it isn't a black and White winner and loser situation)
I'm going to go ahead and guess that it was on the roof! Was it on the roof? I knew it!
