My husband has already left for work when I came back home from dropping my daughter off at school. I was starving and craving for sandwich and went on to making one for myself. I love cream cheese but the one we have is packed in a foil and not in a resealable container. This, I assume, is the reason why it is a little too hard. I wanted it a little softer and stuck it inside the microwave. I totally forgot that foil and has no place inside the microwave. I panicked and froze when I saw sparkling fires. I must have stood for about five seconds before turning off the microwave. What a way to start my day!
