Thread: Flood

    Flood

    I took a pork loin out of the freezer for dinner. I always defrost meats in a big pot of cool water, takes a fraction of the time compared to letting sit on the counter, and I never microwave defrost.

    Set the pot on the stove, put the loin in and started filling with water.

    Popped my head in the fridge looking for a snack. Found 2 different kinds of string cheeze, decided to do a taste test. Grabbed an apple, sat down in front of the TV.

    I hear an odd noise. Turned off the tv, strained to hear.

    Then it hit me.... omg.

    All I can say is: Thank Gawd for wet/dry vacs.

    So I'm racking my brain.... Pot is on the stove filling with water?? From a hose? Cuz I'm trying to figure out how you have water running over when its on the stove, unless you mean boiling water. Or you have a fancy faucet that reaches the stove....

    I took it to mean he started filling the pot with water, got distracted by cheese, and forgot to turn the water off once the pot was full. I think he has one of those pot filler water spigots by his stove.

    So which strong cheese was better?

    I have a fansy pot filler on the island next to the stove. It fills slow, so I start it and get back to it in a few minutes. I just plumb forgot to shut it off.

    I prefer the Polly-O to Galbani. Polly-O is a bit more salted, Galbani is very good but is a bit more sour.

    Just discovered the carpet in the basement under the kitchen was soaked too....

    Found a pic of the filler before the kitchen was done.

    No way would I put that in my kitchen because it's way too easy to get distracted multi-tasking and their is no back up safety net like you have filling up a pot in the sink...
