So yesterday I received my brand new Lock & Lock Round Borosilicate Glass Pot that I ordered on Yuppiechef. I’m not sure if it was the big meeting I had this morning or the excitement to use my new favorite kitchen gadget but last night I was unable to sleep. At all. And so after tossing and turning for hours eventually at 4am I got up and decided to do something useful.
Early birds should catch worms. Not cook.
So what do you do at 4am? Well after writing a few blog posts I decided to do some cooking. First I made apple and carrot bran muffins and then, being the proactive fabulous girlfriend I am, I decided to make dinner for tonight.
Wanting to make a hearty wholesome meal for my man, I decided to make a cottage pie – well my version: mince the way my mom makes it with a white sauce topped with cheese.
By 6am supper was ready, muffins were made and posts were written. I thought I was doing fantastically.
As the day diminished so did my energy levels. So when I got home after a day full of meetings and no sleep I decided to put my delicious cottage pie in the oven to warm so that it would be ready and waiting when Jamie got home.
A right F*** up
I’m going to blame my faux pas on being over tired and not thinking straight but I honestly did think that the whole pot (lid included) was oven proof.
Well let me just tell you it’s not.
This is what’s left of the lid of my beautiful pot, which I am now mourning:
Hopefully I’ll be able to get another lid. No pot will ever be complete until it finds its match.
And so I end the day in sorrow as I grieve the loss of my Lock & Lock Round Borosilicate Glass Pot sans lid. Moral of the story: Don’t operate non-heat resistant kitchen wear whilst under the deprivation of sleep. Also make sure to read the instructions not just glance at them and file them diligently.
