Eww...

What happens when you leave a potato in the oven at 285 degrees for 12 hours?










I put this in for Dave the other night and he forgot about eating it. I noticed that the oven was still on the next morning. Dave took it out and cracked it open and this is what we got. Nasty huh?

There should've been a warning on that post! That about made me toss my cookies!!! haha

Leave it in there a little longer and maybe it'll turn into some valuable mineral...

YUCK!! That is absolutely hilarious. Maybe if you left it in long enough it would petrify and then your kids could take it to school for show and tell. (I always loved taking petrified wood for show and tell)

Looks yummy! But I think I'm all full. -Lucky having the oven on that long didn't cause any problems.

Upon first skim, I thought it was a decadent chocolate-esque cookie. I'm grossly disappointed. You should do some science experiments with other foods, as well.

That is awesome!!!!!! It looks like a thunder egg. Thank you for providing a visual experience that I would probably never have experienced otherwise. Mainly because I am usually too lazy to actually cook potatoes in the oven.
