Dave ended up having to take the tongs and pick up whatever was burning and throw it in the sink so we could stop it from burning. We ended up not having the frozen pizza as planned for dinner. It ended being a cereal night for dinner.
This morning I got up before Dave and decided to do the clean cycle on the oven. I found the owners manual that the previous home owners had left us and followed it's directions. Dave woke up to the smell of something burning again and me not in bed. He was a little concerned.
I forgot to take pictures last night of the mess. But here is a picture of my now clean stove.
