what's that smell?

I set a few eggs on the stove to come to a boil. In the meantime, I went into the office to read a few blogs.
...35 minutes later...I hear a crackling popping noise from the kitchen.
Uh oh.
All the water had boiled off and the pan is sizzling. With half a dozen dry eggs in it.

The house reaks of overcooked eggs. and burnt pan.

I finally got a kitchen timer I can carry in my pocket after doing the same thing. They stink don't they?!?

Uh-oh! I hope you weren't commenting on my blog when that happened! :(

Ugh! I hate eggs to begin with and often get nauseated when Eric cooks them. This sounds awful! I did this once in high school with tea bags that I was boiling. All of the water evaporated and the bags were burning up, nearly on fire. It had a really odd smell that led my mother to question whether I was doing drugs in the house!

Oh gee! I am glad I'm not the only one who has this smell to deal with! I dislike the smell of burnt eggs and a fried pan,but I love the taste of blogging!
