So, yesterday I spent the whole day in the kitchen baking bread; 2 loaves of whole wheat and 6 loaves of French Baguette. As you may or may not know - French Baguette needs a container of water cooking underneath it for part of the bake time. I have this glazed earthenware casserole dish that I have been using for this purpose.
I bake 3 loaves at a time. The first batch went off without a hitch. But, then...
when the beeper when off signaling me to remove the pot of water from the oven...
I grabbed my pot holders, opened the oven door, clasped the casserole dish by the handles, lifted it up, and...
The whole side just lifted right off - pouring steaming hot water all over my oven door, which in turn, spilled all over my floor. Buuuummmmmmer!
I was shocked. I couldn't even articulate what had just happened. But hearing my moans of horror - my big, strappin', helpful husband hopped up and came to my rescue. I love that man! At least it was just water - albeit, scalding water. I choose to look at it as an opportunity to sanitize my kitchen tile! :0)
I have NO idea what caused this dish to snap like that - I'm just thankful it happened before I had it up in the air. I'm sure there would have been burns involved at that point.
Have you had any kitchen (or other) mishaps lately?
