The jokes on me!

OK, Now I have had a big ole slap in the face of the reality that "I can't do anything".....well I guess I should say "I can't do everything"!!!!! My wonderful UPS man brought me my new cookware this afternoon and I couldn't wait to fire them up!

Wellllllllll............FIRE THEM UP I DID!!!! I burnt the crap out of one of the pans!! LOL!!!!!!!! FYI, Waterless cooking is not the route to take for sweet potatoes. Remember that!! The book says to put cool water in the pot and bring it to a boil to loosen the burnt food off of the pan and then let the pan cool and clean as usual. (so I guess other people burn food in these too?)
It didn't say how long to boil the water. I have boiled the pot almost dry twice, about an hour and I still have burnt particles in it!!!!!!! At least Danny understood. I guess there is a learning curve that comes with this cookware. I wasn't supposed to know how to cook waterless until I had the right cookware, right?????

I had my follow-up appointment with my pulmonologist today about my sarcoidosis and I got a great report. I had to have pulmonary function tests and they were much better than in July!! Woowooooo!!!!! He did start me on a systemic treatment for the rash in my scalp. Remember that's how we found out that I had sarcoidosis in the first place? This area has been there for over a year now and hasn't gotten any better and actually has worsened in the past few days. The treatment is the same drug that is used to treat Malaria!!! Please pray for me that I can tolerate it. I am so sensitive to so many medications. He expects it to take as much as 6 months to really see an improvement in the rash.

We had at least a half inch of ice this morning so school was closed today. I did not want to go to the Dr by myself.....not that I was afraid of him, I just wanted to have a fun day of eating out and shopping!!! I called Morgan and she was more than happy to agree to go with me!! She was so happy until her belly was full and then for some reason her feet started hurting?? I wouldn't tell her but mine were too. We did a lot of shopping, well looking at stuff and had a lot of fun. It was a GOOD DAY!!!!!!! Thank you Morgan!! We'll do it again sometime!!

Update!! December 10, 2009 @ 5:34 AM ~ The said pan is now free from debris and shines like a crystal. I had nightmares about this pan last night. I let it soak overnight with Cameo cleaner, a cleaner for stainless steel. I was afraid to even look at the pan this morning but when I did I was really pleased!! Why I have had to soak my other pots or pans for a lot longer than that to remove burnt food from them. Just kidding!! I usually don't burn my food! Or it's burned so badly that the pot has to be thrown away, such as Danny's popcorn pot!!!!!

Well I sure am glad I didn't come for supper. I wasn't in the mood for burnt sweet potatoes. I could do that with my old cheap pans!! Ha...ha. You will get the hang of it. Please don't ruin them, I get them one day!!!

I have definitely burned lots of food by mistake in my stainless steel set. It took me quite a while to get used to using it. Hope all goes well with your treatment. Love the music.. definitely my kind of Christmas music!

You quack me up girl friend!!!!! I laughed so hard. It doesn't help that it is almost 1 in the morning. So glad the pan looks better. I bet that will be so nice to have those kind of pans.

You will have to share what you make with them.

Your home looks so beautiful. We had 4"of snow, love it!!!
Blessings sweetie!
