Hot Stuff

On a normal weekday, I am just waking up when Keith is leaving for work.  Today, however, I was covering the earlier shift and was up with Keith.  When I came out into the living room he told me there had been an "incident."

He woke up at about 2am to get a drink of water and smelled a weird burning smell, but could not figure out what it was, then came back to bed.  This morning, as he grabbed a clean bowl out of the dishwasher, it became clear.  A lid for a little tupperware container had fallen onto the heating coil thing at the bottom of the dishwasher and melted.  So, he was smelling burning plastic when he got up.

I am so happy to live in the age of the internet where I can Google "how to clean melted plastic off a dishwasher" to solve my problems.  (By the way, the answer, which was what I was thinking of doing but thought it would be best to look before doing something that would ruin my dishwasher, is to turn the dishwasher on the drying part of the cycle and let it melt more of the plastic.  Then wipe with a wet rag.  I'm pretty sure I got most of it off and it was not difficult.)

This evening we watched Survivor, which had a pretty intense tribal council for it only being the second show of the season.  I think this season's going to be pretty good.

For dinner, I added tofu to some frozen veggies with teriyaki sauce.  This was my first time cooking tofu, though I've had it out at restaurants plenty of times.  The tofu was so good.  I don't know what took me so long to make it myself!  I'm definitely going to be looking up some new recipes.
