That's not what I expected to happen
I made German pancakes this morning. Not my favorite, but could it be much easier? I put the butter in the baking dish and into the pre-heating oven to melt the butter. As usual. Problem was, the mix wasn't even ready and I got distracted. I started to smell something burning. Oh great, the butter... So I take out the dish with the scalding butter and dump it into the sink. "I don't want that burned taste on my panckes!" I think. So I turned on HOT WATER mind you to rinse it off. All while holding the dish in the hot pad. I hold the dish under the running water to quickly rinse it out. BOOOOOOOM! The 8X8 Pyrex dish litrally burst into TONS of big and tiny pieces alike inside my sink. WHAT THE CRAP?! It was such a shock I just stood there staring at it! Hmmmm. How on earth am I going to clean this up? So of course, I call my trusty source. Michelle Webb! I love Michelle. She just seems to have the answers to everything. "Uh, I have a random question! How do I clean up a sink full of shattered glass?!" So of course in her wisdom she says, 'Why don't you use the shop vac?' BRILLIANT! Why can I never think of the solution myself? Anyways, it worked WONDERS and I was able to place the hose down INTO the disposal to get all the pieces I would never be able to see or get to! I'm sooooo lucky that it shattered while in the sink and not all over me or the floor. The mess was very much contained. But WOW! Kinda crazy.
