Roasting beans

  • 18th May, 2005 at 11:44 AM

I woke up to the smell of freshly roasted coffee this morning.

"That's odd," I thought to myself, "I don't drink coffee."

Then I had a more meaning discussion with myself as I brushed my teeth, "Self, there is also no-one around to make coffee. Timin doesn't have opposable thumbs."

I wandered into the kitchen and noticed it was pretty warm in there. That's when I realised that I left the oven running on warm all night. I had planned to roast some peanuts so I could snack on them, but forgot to take them out. Putting on my welding gloves, I fished the frying pan out of the oven to reveal dark-roasted peanuts.

They sure looked like coffee beans. And they smelt like coffee beans. But I decided to toss them out instead of brewing myself a cup. It seemed like a better idea.

I'm semicurious what it would have tasted like, actually.

Is your pan still in good shape?
