Domestics: I forgot I was making soup.


I did something I’ve never done before. I burnt, badly, a pot of soup. I was making tortilla soup for my dad and completely spaced that I was even making it. The house was warm, smelled amazing, and then all of a sudden I realized something smelled like it was on fire… that would be my soup.

Of course my mother was beyond angry with me but thanks to the wonderful guises of Facebook I was able to make enough connections to get a good suggestion on how to clean the pot.

So for future reference and for anyone who might also make this stupid mistake…

1. Thin layer of water in the bottom of the pan
2. 1 cup vinegar
3. Bring water and vinegar to boil on stove
4. Add 2 tbs of baking soda
5. Empty water and then scrub as usual.

About ten minutes later my parent’s precious revere wear pot was spotless. I was pretty excited to fix the problem and not have to toss out a pot that my parents have quite literally owned my entire life.


Peace, love, and parachutes!
