Domestic Woes


This is in response to my sister-in-law's blog entry where she talks about how she melted a frozen ziplock bag of soup to the bottom of her pan. As she puts it . .bottom of hot pot + plastic bag = big hole and ruined soup.

I had a similar domestic casualty. I made some pasta noodles, strained them, and decided that it would be fine to rest my plastic strainer back on the stove while I finished making the other stuff. (We have the old school coil burners stove) Niels and I ate our entire dinner without realizing what I had done. We soon realized this destroyed burner when we started to clean.

Ok, so I hope you dont mind me checking out your blog. Its just so fun to see what other people are up to. When we lived in an apartment I had just turned off one of the electric burners (which I hate by the way) and then I set a glass 9 by 13 pan on that exact same burner and a few minutes later it shattered all over my kitchen. After that I was REALLY careful. Glad to see im not the only one who has funny things like that happen. Hopefully the dinner turned out good though. lol.
