Silicone Lid

Sili-lid. What a rainy day! But it was brightened by a call this morning from my cousins, one young one studying in Finland for a semester and calling me from there with her mom in Nebraska. Why? Well, she was jumping up and down in joy for receiving her letter of admittance and scholarship to grad school at Harvard for this fall. That would make the sun come out anywhere!

Dad & I stayed inside out of the rain and I thought I'd try out what I thought would be a cool new silicone lid, which stretches over bowls for storage and microwaving. It's not cool at all, but rather hot like the devil! I struggled with this to put it over a small bowl and I can't say much good about it as far as a lid is concerned, but it sure does make a good sling shot! I'm lucky I saved the bowl from breaking and only a bit of the contents slopped out. I struggled with it for a good 20 minutes, and at the end, needed a nice cup of herb tea to relax!

Oh, how frustrating when we buy something that turns out not to be quite what we expected.; o ( Thank you for visiting my blog Anna.

Oh no! I wanted to like those lids, and now I will hate them for you.
Thanks for the review.
