So this happened …
The funniest thing is I actually thought to take a pic before putting everything in the oven then decided I’d wait until it was done …
10 minutes later there was a loud bang, similar to what it sounds like when your cookie sheet “pops” in the oven. At first I didn’t move but then I couldn’t help but think to check.
Surprised is an understatement. I had heard about glassware shattering, usually from drastic temperature changes. I took it out of the cupboard, added the ribs and put it in the oven like I have done lots of times before.
Sadly this was the first time I made macaroni pie without covering it in foil first. It cost me dearly. 😦 It hurt to throw all this food out. I was so proud of myself for making the macaroni pie and using up some of the cheese we had, before it was forgotten.
My kids were game to eat it. They were not deterred by shards of glass.
I take this as a sign that the universe wants me to clean my oven. A task that is long overdue.
