Adventures in my Kitchen

Tonight, while unloading the dishwasher, I went to stack some glass serving bowls and this one practically EXPLODED as soon as I sent another bowl inside of it - I barely tapped it and it shattered, sending microscopic shards of glass flying all throughout the open cupboard and across my kitchen floor where I was standing barefoot. Uuughhh... Luckily, no cuts and I was able to carefully pick up the bigger pieces and cautiously make my way to retrieve the vacuum. I guess this is what happens to glass dishes as they age - this bowl was over 20 years old.

After cleaning the glass from my kitchen, I decided to throw together a quick stir-fry for dinner... the bottled teriyaki sauce in my fridge was a bit "aged" and I didn't want to push my luck (seeing as how I was not on a good track so far tonight...) so I splashed some soy sauce in the pan and added a few leftover packets of Chick-Fil-A polynesian sauce - yum! Worked great in a pinch =)

I am so glad you were not injured. Yes glass does get fragile as it ages...also, if it was hot from the dishwasher and you placed it with a cold one (or vice-versa) that can happen too.

OH NO! Maybe time to try your hand at mosaics? Then you could preserve the memories of it and make a little art with it?
