You know, I learned something today. Multitasking can be a bad thing sometimes. Oh – and maybe I need to add a new category called “Kitchen Adventures” for things that happen around here, like this. . .
And like setting a glass saucepan full of sugar and water on the stove to boil for iced tea. . .and then going into the back room to work on tomorrow’s special music with your husband.
All of a sudden, I smelled something. I ran to the kitchen just in time to see my sugar syrup a dark, dark brown instead of the usual clear, boiling and smoking something fierce. Who knows HOW long it had been since I turned on the stove!
Stephen told me to go outside and dump it in the woods, so I did. It was so hot that it made the leaves on the ground smoke! We both had to laugh as one of our young roosters came running over to investigate the “goodies” that I had brought outside.
The pan is soaking in a sink full of the hottest water I could draw from the tap. Hopefully it will come clean. (I take that back. I just checked it and all of the burned sugar came off – with only about 10 minutes of soaking and not a bit of scrubbing. Now I’m happy.)
Aw, grr. I really got sidetracked this time!
