Bad Butter!

So I forgot that I had spilt some butter on the bottom of the oven when I was making muffins yesterday.  I remembered that had happened when I opened the oven to throw in some cauliflower today.  There were flames on the bottom of the oven.  I promptly closed the door.  I may not be a genious, but I know oxygen and fires like each other.  Once the door was closed I turned off the oven and thought about my options.  Fire extinguisher seemed like overkill.  Baking soda, maybe?  Then I remembered I had read something about salt.  So I grabbed the industrial sized salt box (full) and chucked some in the oven.  Worked like a charm.  I'm sure there are other methods, but I thought I would share the one that worked for me.  

Then I texted S so he wouldn't worry.  "Small kitchen fire, nothing to worry about."  We'll see how long it takes him to call me.  

Dang!  I forgot to take a picture!  Good thing I have more butter.
