What IS That Smell?!

Yup... the smell is the pan baking in the oven, again! I finally figured out something to remind me to take the pan out of the oven before I turn it on and bake the empty pan with used parchment paper on it.

See the tape that says, "Pan in Oven"?
It is right over the controls so I can't turn on the oven 
with the pan inside!

I don't have a regular place to store some of my pans that I use often.....

And I really like to use the parchment paper on cookie pans until they scream for mercy (because I'm a cheapskate!) ....

I put the tape above the oven controls when I turn the oven on. Then I replace it over the controls when I turn the oven off.

That reminds me of something I do - so that everyone can know when the oven is hot - I always leave the light on until it cools down. I taught my kids & now my grandkids that when the light is on they are not to touch the oven since it is hot.
