Neat little (and informative) story!!  Just once, years and years ago, I popped a pizza into the oven.  Soon, I noticed a flame through the oven window.  It was a plastic spatula.  Since I had no little kids around at that time......I wonder who might have left it in there.  Even more so, why would anyone put something like that in the oven.  I guess I did it, although I don't remember.  However, it was a learning experience, and I do check the oven now......everytime.....and before I turn the oven on!!

I always check my oven before turning it on because I store extra baking pans in there.  There isn't a lot of room in my cupboards for all the baking pans so the oven makes a great storage place.  It is a pain to have to take them out every time I use the oven, which is frequently.

Speaking of baking with Mother, I remember the first cake I ever made (scratch of course) when i was 8.  I followed the recipe to the letter.  When it said beat on medium for 4 minutes I was looking at a watch to be sure it was 4 minutes.
I also remember the first time I helped my mother make cream puffs.  I was amazed at how the dough made a ball in the pan with the addition of the eggs.
