We were going to have a nice bacalhau dish for dinner tonight, baked in our (well, boyfriend of feitpingvin's) Schlemmer-topf. After the food had been in the oven for a little while, we smelled something burning, and boyfriend of feitpingvin went to have a look.
"OH SHIT! GET OVER HERE NOW..."
I went quickly into the kitchen and looked in the oven. There was a big crack in the clay pot. Shit, shit, shit... Boyfriend of feitpingvin managed to take the pot out of the oven and hold it together, while I scooped the food into a boring stainless steel pot.
Yeah, the food is saved, but we're both in a foul mood now. We need a new Topf, and cleaning up the mess in the oven (the liquids that seeped out) is not going to be fun :-(
