No, not fun with The Boyfriend and I...fun with Fruit, literally!

Sadly, there almost no gas stoves in Switzerland and I can't do this at home. We have one this glass-ceramic thingy that has to be handled like a Fabergé egg. I guess, I have to keep watching the video...

Gomad speaks the truth. There will be no fun with fruit and gas stoves at Chateau Mac.

Although, I do have some bananas and a kinky side.......

What exactly are you doing with the orange peel?

I'm a bit dim today.

Michael said...

Gomad & Ms. Mac - I am so sorry to hear that, life must be pretty dull without a gas stove!

Actually you can do this experiment with a lighter as well.

Ms. Mac get one of your little ones to keep the lighter lit and then squeeze the orange peel. They'll squeal with delight.

Andi - There's lots of "oil" in orange rinds and it catches fire when you squeeze the peel really quick.

The only thing you need to do is make sure you're careful when you're peeling the orange so you don't squeeze the oil out prematurely.

Michael said...

XM - I'm so happy you know that song!

CHG - I can't make meth, I don't have the recipe.

I'm just getting around to seeing this because for some reason the box wasnt coming up on my puter for a while ... anyway, this was fun! I too love that song - my roommate and I in college had the Ferris soundtrack adn used to play that song while grasping for a second wind during all nighters. And usually finding some odd diversion comparable to this subject matter ... LOL. But I digress ...

Thanks for another fun look into your life and times - Always a pleasure, Michael! :)
