WHAT: Random | WHEN: January 26, 2010
|The good news? The gas cooktop was installed today. The bad news? I
scorched one of our Calphalon One pots on my first attempt at using
said cooktop. It's too soon to call this my fault, but my case doesn't
look good. I wanted to test out the awesomeness of cooking with gas,
so I told Kylie I was just going to run a little test case by boiling
some water. That was around 9:05pm this evening.
[cut to 10:16pm]
Kylie: (walking into kitchen) "Why is this still boiling?"
Me: (sitting in my photography room at the computer) "What'd you say, honey?"
Voice in my head: Uh-ohhhh... tell me I didn't forget about the water I started to boil an hour ago. TELL ME I didn't forget about the water I started to boil an hour ago?!.... I forgot. Quick, come up with an awesome excuse to deflect the blame.
Me: (walking the walk of shame into the kitchen) "Oops. I think I forgot."
Voice in my head: Really? "I think I forgot?" Is that the best you could come up with? You're hopeless.
So now I'm in search and rescue mode. I'm looking for and taking recommendations for trying to save our [awesome wedding gift] pot. I've got some Bar Keepers Friend stuff I'm gonna give a try, but I'm open to other ideas if you've got 'em.
