The Dangers of Cooking Abroad...WW!!

No...really. This is just a serious accident that could have been HORRIBLE! I was cooking a Chicken Broccoli Casserole and the cheese just wasn't melting...so I leaned down...opened the oven...didn't smell any gas...and thought hmm...this is strange. So I leaned down a little bit further so I could see the fire and clicked it one time and out came a HUGE flame.

The amazing thing is that I have no nose hairs left but my eyebrows and eye lashes are still in tact! Yes, I know my hair looks really bad. The thing is that I have been growing out my "frizzies" for about 8 months now and they were finally manageable...but well, they were sticking up when the flame hit so they just burned right up. I think they protected the rest of my hair because the fire burned upwards...I don't know. I just know I'm very lucky and I will never never never again lean down to see the fire as it lights and I will double check smelling for gas.

I thought I was being safe to make sure I didn't assume the fire was lit...This has never happened before...AH! So here is the BEFORE picture...yeah, it's ok...I give you permission to laugh...:
