Oops I did it again

It's that time of year again. Time for the annual open the windows and air out the house. But, as usual, this annual tradition is NOT because the weather is perfect and 75 degrees. (which it is.) It's because of this:

Yes, it may look like a delicious pot of turkey chili. But...if you stir it around a bit...




You will notice I TOTALLY ruined my favorite pot. :( So, just for the record, I HATE my electric stove and miss miss miss my gas one in Utah. :( This is what simmer will do to you. And, also just for the record, kids walking in and out of the 100 times does not mean that one of them will tell you "the house smells like fire mom."

Ah come on...the pot can't be ruined. Put an inch or so of water and baking soda and let it come to a boil and simmer. It breaks up the burned on crud. Not that I know...

Oh, that stinks! I miss the gas stove at our old house too. All the appliances here are awful. Were you able to salvage the chili?

Oh, yikes... It did look quite yummy! That is like insult to injury... I can feel your pain, really!

I have to say I think that was one of the hardest things I had to adapt to in AZ, aside from the 115+ degrees. Electric burners, grrrr.
