On Oven Cleaning

The brand new oven in our brand new house spent approximately one week in it's pristine virgin state.

Then I found some beautiful rhubarb at Pike Place Market.

Why, you ask? Because when you find beautiful, in-season rhubarb at your famous local farmer's market, you buy it, chop it up, and bake it into delicious strawberry-rhubarb pies. And when you're in a rush to get said pies in the over so you can do a zillion other things around the house before your toddler awakens from her nap, you forget the cardinal rule of baking fruit pies: put something (tinfoil,  cookie sheets, something, anything!) underneath the pie tins.
