Sunday night was much like any other, I went into the kitchen to prepare dinner, popped it in the oven and went into the living room to sit with Curt and the kids, no cares in the world, just chatting and laughing with the family while dinner cooked, it smelled soooooo good and I was eager to try it because it was a new recipe.
Next thing I know BAM, this loud sound that I can only describe as a bomb, eminates from the kitchen. I didn't know whether to run in there or run out the door with the kids. It's funny though because it only took a few seconds for my mind to register what had happened.....before I even went into the kitchen I knew. Yep, my pan just exploded in the oven. WHAT THE HECK???
I started to run a checklist through my mind.....what went wrong???
Pan too cold when I put it in the oven - Nope, wasn't cold at all - CHECK
New pan that is not safe for oven use - Nope, been using this pan forever - CHECK
Very cold ingredients that would cause it to explode - Nope, nothing cold in there - CHECK
So I have come to the conclusion that I really don't know why it happened, just that it did, and with it took my beautiful favorite pyrex dish. THAT is what I was most upset about. LOL
Nevermind the dinner and the fact that now I had to figure out what to make, considering I had nothing else thawed out......just the thought that my beautiful dish was gone, shattered into millions of little pieces, is what got to me.
I did feed the family, I made some quick Grilled Cheese and Ham sandwiches with some potato salad and macaroni salad, some carrot cake mini muffins for dessert and that's it. I spent the rest of the night cleaning out the oven with Curt's help, I'm so lucky to have a husband like him.
But moving on, I'm sure you've noticed the new template, the other one was seriously getting on my nerves LOL I found it nice the first 2 or 3 days and then it got really boring and you know me, I don't like boring, it does not reflect my personality at all. Since I don't have the time right now to be messing with my own template, I just used one of the premade ones available on the net.
The kids are both doing good and both back to 100% health, me on the other hand, I am still battling this sinus, congestion, whatever it is, it's frustrating and I can't remember the last time I was able to breathe, smell and taste food and have a good night's sleep. I've been to the doctor and I've been taking but it's still not helping, guess this is what I have to look forward to for the rest of my life because I am NOT going under the knife, unless I really can't smell or breathe, then I might reconsider. Who knows!!!
I haven't had a chance to go around visiting anyone's blogs either, sorry about that, it's just been really crazy around here.
Tomorrow I have a Parent/Teacher Conference in the morning and a dentist appointment in the afternoon. Next week Jasmine has 2 dentist appointments, I also have my INS Interview coming up within the next few weeks, plus Check Up appointments for all of us, so as you can see it's always busy in this place.
I want to ask you all for some prayers for my husband, he's having some problems at work and without going into details, let's just say that at times bosses can be very unfair. Please send out a prayer that everything works out for the best.
I'll be updating my food blog later today, but for now, I've shared a recipe for Baked Ham and Cheddar Sandwiches, I tried them out the other day and they were really good.
Well I have things to do around here so I'm going to say goodbye for now, have a wonderful day.
For dinner we're having porkchops and homemade fries.
