A Sorry Lunch, Or Who Burnt the Brats?

I couldn’t either, until the smell of beer brats wafting up the stairs became the smell of burnt beer brats.

What I saw was a sorry site. I wish I had taken a photo, but my mind kicked into thinking how I could save my pan.

FIFTY YEAR OLD PANS

A few months ago when I realized how old there were I decided perhaps I deserved a new set. Out of curiosity I looked them up online to see if they still sold them. They don’t, but to my amazement people wanted to buy them. I decided perhaps my lifetime investment was worth keeping awhile longer.

LEARNING HOW TO CLEAN UP A BURNT PAN

I still had charred remains going up the sides of the pan for an inch or more so I scraped off what I could but it looked pretty hopeless. Then I remembered reading about baking soda. Grabbing the baking soda I covered all the burned spots with a healthy covering.  I added hot tap water to cover the burned area and brought it to a boil   before reducing it to a simmer. I let it simmer while we had leftovers for lunch and cleaned up.

My next step was to get out the Bar Keepers Friend scouring powder.

Guess I still don’t get new pans. But that’s ok, I’m really content with these, and grateful to that salesman for convincing me they were the best pans around. And now, I’m cooking with Vintage cookware!

A few weeks ago a received an email from a young man who had read this post from a year ago. He graciously offered me a link to a post he had done on the used of baking soda. His post 51 Ways to Clean With Baking Soda is so interesting that I thought I would re-post this article and include a link to his article. I’m sure you will find all sorts of helpful information there. Enjoy!

“She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.” Proverbs 31:27

I heard from another reader that she has used baking soda for a variety of medical issues. Some sound quite interesting. I’m not a physician so please be sure to check with your own doctor before trying any of these. Thanks for sharing, Jen of Jen Reviews! 

NEW READERS

On a more serious note, I’d like to share a blog post that really spoke to my heart this week. I know you all want your marriages to be as great as they can and I felt this post by Lori Alexander gave some great food for thought.

You're Gonna Love this Easy Cheese Sauce

I’ve been making this cheese sauce for years and years. It’s very simple and difficult to mess up unless you make it so spicy no one can eat it. Even then a little more cheese/milk and it can be saved. You might just have a lot of it. Don’t worry – it will disappear in no time.
