Sooooo…..about that baked vegetable pilaf.
As I went to put the dish in the oven, I glanced at the recipe instructions one last time and realized I needed a lid for the casserole dish (the directions called for one).
Welp, I didn’t have a lid, so I made a makeshift one using two glass lids for the 9x13in dish. One was from a smaller casserole dish and the other was my crock-pot lid.
The handle on the crock-pot lid had melted.
In a huff, I grabbed the other glass lid with my non-mitted hand and immediately felt the shock of HOT. I quickly threw the glass down into the sink and turned on the cold cold water to run my burned fingers under.
Then I heard a large SNAP.
Maybe I need to go back and read Cooking For Dummies.
Have you ever had a baking or cooking fail? What happened?
