Monday Night Dinners

I was briefly feeling fancy and smug last week.  I thought I found the secret to happy Mondays, and I was going to be the one to share it with the world.  What’s the secret?  Cooking, vino, and Otis.  Otis Redding that is.

While I was giving myself a congratulatory toast with another sip of wine, I had a moment of pure genius in the kitchen.  I turned on the wrong burner and proceeded to warm a pyrex dish on high.  I was far too caught up in posting a pic of my beautiful artichokes to notice the glowing red.

Do you know what happens to pyrex when you leave it on a burner?  It explodes!  How in the world is it even safe for an oven?  Oh and it doesn’t just explode into pieces that are easy to clean up.  It explodes into teeny, tiny shards that go everywhere.

Thankfully most of the food was covered and could be saved.  What kind of wife would I be if the husband came home to takeout when I always go on about loving to make a special Monday night dinner for just the two of us.

After the incident, I did what any woman would, I had another sip of wine and continued cooking and instagraming without any mention of my oversight.

I haven’t decided what I am cooking tonight, but I know what I am not doing.  Not putting a pyrex on a hot burner.  What are you cooking tonight?
