So I’m pretty sure my host family is going to hate me. My host mom has a gluten allergy too so my mom sent us some gluten free brownie mix since that isn’t available here. I preheated the oven was mixing the patter and greasing the pan and as I was putting my un-finished masterpiece into the oven, tragedy struck. Turns out, my host family uses the oven for storage. Inside the oven were 4 pans (which are fine) and a splatter guard, which melted into the bottom. I felt terrible and was scrubbing the bottom for half an hour before I put the brownies in to bake. I really hope my host family doesn’t hate me.
