The pan has since cooled and I'm sad to say we still cannot separate the lid from the pan. Any ideas??? We ran cold water on it, thinking perhaps the glass would shrink slightly and allow us to pull it off....nope, but it did seep in somehow and we now have green bean soup! What kills me is two hours later, my hubby comes into the stamp room (where I am posted for the PTI release of course) and says "ya know, maybe I could bring the pan up to a high heat and it will steam the lid off. But I don't want to burn the beans." Burn the beans?!?! I think the beans are pretty much a wash, eh??? BAHAHAHAHA I can't stop laughing over this, and watching him continue to walk into the kitchen, grab the pot and start shaking it just puts me into stitches all over again!!!
But on a serious note, does anyone know how to save my pan? Should I be greasing the sides with butter at this point? ;)
