Not sure what’s wrong with our weather lately. Two days in a row we’ve been having a blazing hot summer-like weather (high 80s-low 90s) and today I woke up to an overcast 60s-70s weather..again. I heard it’s gonna rain tomorrow.
Paired with left over Scramble Egg with Green Beans and Sausage and a bit of baked purple yam
I LOVE PURPLE YAM! Post workout or not I could dig into this anytime. Too bad they’re so dang expensive ($1.40/lbs??)
Then K and I went to take care some financial stuff so we won’t be stranded on the street when we are 70 years old later in the future. Boy that whole thing took AN HOUR!
And also went to our local grocery market Superking Markets to re-stock our usual produce that don’t need to get organic (cauliflower, carrots, green onions, turnips, onions, bananas, grapes) and some halal beef and lamb.
We didn’t get home until around 1pm (we left our house around 9:30am) and I proceeded with my last workout of this week. I usually like to do my workout first thing in the morning but on the weekends, I rather have my loose leaf hot tea and taking care other stuff first.
So since I finished my workout prior lunch, my lunch was a combination of post workout meal (notice that purple yam?) and bunch left overs and some freshly steamed veggies.
We finished off everything – which means I got to cook new dishes.
I made Baked Provence Herb Lamb Shanks which turned out yummy but there was a little incident happened (more on that later).
After finished with my munchies, I went to check on the lamb and this happened.
Believe it or not, the glass dish BROKE in the oven! WHAT THE HELL?? Good thing there weren’t that much liquid in there, otherwise it’ll be super disaster!
Another good thing was I used my convection counter top oven. Imagine if this happened in the bigger oven. Speaking of which, I’ve NEVER USED the big oven. I’m way too comfortable with my counter top convection oven.
This wasn’t the first time I used that glass dish for baking and I thought it was oven safe. Now I’m a bit skeptical of using glass dish for baking.
Btw tomorrow is K’s birthday but he specifically told me NO NEED to celebrate or cook any special dishes for him. I was planning to make some primal friendly birthday cake, but he insisted me not to. But I know that he likes the Almond Butter Beef that I made couple days ago, although it got burned a little bit, so I might want to make that one again tomorrow. Wish me luck!
Did your baking glass dish ever broke in the oven?
This was my FIRST time ever and now I become skeptical of using glass dish for baking. Now what am I going to use if I need to bake something with acid (like lemon/vinegar) in the dish? Using metal ones is not good either because it might have some reaction with acid.
Any kitchen disaster you want to share?
I know mine wasn’t too bad yet. I’ve read some other people who had worse (broke a jar full of sweet liquid all over the kitchen cabinet for example).
