pretty flames!  
ok, so apparently butter is flammable now. these things need to have warning labels.

this is why i cook in the microwave. less things explode into fire.

honestly, who designs this stuff?! It's made to come near heat sources, for fucks' sake!

someone should sue.

[edit: omg. i did it again. this is why my roommate doesn't want me in the kitchen.]
[edit#2: butter makes pretty flames like sparklers!]

aw baby, just come on out here and I'll take care of you and cook for you. All you gotta do is look pretty and give it up now and then.

If your butter is catching on fire, it had already been scorched past the point of tasting good anyway.

I'm thinking that the MAX setting on your stove is not a good idea for whatever it is you're doing :P

i don't think i was supposed to leave it melting on the stove next to the flame. fortunately it made little noises i could hear from the living room.

the second time, the pot boiled over and made delicious sparkles!

RE: Your edits: Sorry, that's funny.

I actually worry more about something asploding in the microwave more than I worry about fire on the stove.

So, what were you making? *pass the bread*

oh yeah, my first year of grad school, i heated the skillet, placed some butter in it to melt, and before you knew it, I had a 4' flame reaching for the ceiling. *good times*

the milk solids in butter have a low smoke point. it may be better to saute on medium when using butter. just a thought.

i've a bone to pick with her.

i would have preferred to live quite content in my ignorance; believing it impossible to ever fold a fitted sheet. I had a system that worked: take it out of the dryer, ball it up, and put it in a drawer.

Then on that fated day she, with smug grin, sweet demeanour and oh so helpful voice, showed how it was done. deliverance much to my chagrin. that's when i realised my gross domestic incompetence. that bitch deserved what she got, if only to subdue my own inflamed ego.

A Toast to You
Sounds like Sandra Lee trying to pull off a Paula Dean recipe... however obscure those references may be.

Should you attempt to use butter in other recipes, remember: Butter the bread AFTER you toast it.
