Cooktop Fail
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.
