Writer's Post: Stirring The Pot

This weeks Writer's Post topic is "Stirring the Pot." Here is my take on the matter.

Have you ever been cooking when suddenly you have to run to the bathroom? You tell your husband or kids to stir the pot, but do they? Noooo. By the time you're no longer indisposed, the soup has either boiled onto the stove or is crusted on the bottom. When this happens the results are two fold. If you're lucky, you're eating burnt food and scraping the bottom of the pan for an hour or so. But if you're unlucky, three firetrucks come tearing down the street with their sirens screaming and the neighbors peeking out their windows. 

So why is it people never listen to Mom and stir the pot? It's a national tragedy! In fact, I'll bet if you counted the number of times firetrucks–What? What's that you say? Figurative meaning, not literal meaning?

Been there, done that...but never with fire trucks racing toward the house. And guess what? They trained me to turn the stove off and move the pot aside until I can keep an eye on things when I'm cooking them. Too bad I didn't train them to take me out to eat when I burn the food, huh? Happy Saturday to you...what's left of it anyway:)

I just turn it off and then on again when I return. You just can't trust your family to do the right thing. Just saying. :)

When I put something on the stove, I never trust anyone, not even myself. The thing is that I cook everything on very low fire, so the chance of food getting burnt is not high.
I like the two pictures - yummy soup and a frightened lady.
