the first time i cooked by myself i was 6 years old. my parents worked, and me and my little sister got hungry! i made eggs the first time, then mac n cheese. one time my dad got home early, i was cooking scrambled eggs. i thought he would get mad so i put the pan in the closet, waited for him to go to bed (he worked graveyard). later when he was sleeping i took the pan, finished cooking the eggs, and they turned green!!! yukko! it was a cast iron skillet so maybe that's why they turned green.
