A Little Disaster

When you invite friends for a meal, you plan... everything, at least I do.
Well, when it is six o'clock and they will be arriving at half past six you don't want this to happen!!!

I used this casserole dish for the first time and decided to make Chicken a la King. I fried the chicken strips in olive oil and later covered the casserole to let the chicken simmer for a while, when I got back in the kitchen after few minutes, this was waiting for me.

To cut a long story short, I had to defrost some sausages and I drank a lot of wine that night.....
The lid was replaced but I haven't used it yet. (I am a bit scared)

Four Days Later..... I baked a Cheese cake. The cake was in the oven for five minutes when the cheese mixture started dripping through the pan and onto the bottom of the oven. The drippings turned black and started smoking. I popped in a baking tray to catch the rest of the drippings. After I realized that I did not fit the bottom of the pan correctly, I started crying.

So if anyone wants the recipe for "smoked baked cheese cake" I've got it!
