I set the Brussels sprouts to finish sauteeing, but my TV program was starting and I forgot about them. Let me tell you, blackened Brussels sprouts STINK! Fortunately tonight is garbage eve so the physical evidence will be gone by tomorrow morning. I fear, however, that the smell will linger for days. I guess I'll try burning a scented candle. Sue(tm) Lead me not into temptation... I can find it myself!
