carbonized croissant

No. It's a croissant.
Hard as a rock.
Carbon. It may be a new life form.

Friends have suggested that it is not going to decompose. It is here with us forever, along with eleven other ones.

I do like the pattern they left on the baking sheet, however.

And next time, I will find the stove instructions about how to programme the oven to come on and off automatically, and not cook all night.

Have you been using the kiln lately and perhaps got carried away?

Glad that blackened croissants were the only result!

Future fossils! I like the pattern on the baking sheet too. You can get a similar effect with a torch.

Maybe another month in the oven and it will turn into a diamond?

I like the baking paper pattern too, and you could always consider the ... ahem.... croissant.... to be a form of Terry Pratchett Dwarf Bread

I once cooked some bread rolls that ended up like this....I nailed them to the garden wall in a pretty pattern....they did not decompose, and the birds did not eat them lol :-)

right on. my friends.

I can try pressure (the train tracks) and make diamonds, use them as weapons (always handy) and there will be a few left over to nail on the garden wall. A full service blog.

The pattern on the baking sheet is wonderful. It would make great giftwrap or even a wall-covering :)

excellent suggestion Euphro. That way I don't have to attempt cleaning it.

I love the idea of the authorities investigating when they find these blackened crescents on the train tracks.

They'd be bound to blame it on Islamic terrorists. Or are Canadian authorities more rational?

I like the rusty pattern on the baking tray too.

They do look like coprolites, don't they? Yum!

swamprose says:

yes Facto, they do. I debated blogging it at all for that reason...

also, snow is hard enough to photograph, but now my sympathy is with photographers of black cats, dogs, black anything.

oh dear. I've had a few moments like that. And a lot of burnt pans where I wander off to multi-task and forget all about the veggies on the hob ...

Thanks Gael. I know I am not alone. We could probably run the world, but ask us to check something every ten minutes...

Croissant. Arent they things that you buy in the supermarket? If you wanted to warm them up, you should probably leave them in the fridge overnight. That way when you take them out, they will be warmed upto 4c, which is alot warmer than the outside temp :).

Teehhee. Good to know there are others out there, just like me. Food that's not burnt to a crisp is highly over rated anyway. Sigh! :)

FF, not at all. I knew it before I blogged them, that is why my comments begin, No. It's a croissant...:)
