Have you ever misplaced something that should not have been misplaced?
It was time to straighten out the pots and pans cabinet after the whirlwind fam visit so I’d be prepared once again to be a chef, baker, and short order cook.
Everything is now nicely organized, except for this:
I have a twelve-inch non-stick saute pan with a red handle and a red see-through lid.
I have the lid –exactly where it should be– but the pan is gone. I used it not too long ago because it’s the perfect size as an adjunct to the giant non-stick pan I use for bigger recipes.
I looked everywhere, every cabinet in the kitchen, even the freezer though it’s really too big to fit, to no avail.
I texted son/DIL just in case they packed it up and took it with them (not unheard of to do stuff like that) but they don’t have it.
Quite literally, it disappeared.
That’s why I’m perplexed. I don’t often LOSE things; I take good care of my possessions –I even have pots and pans from my mom dating back to the 40s and 50s, not kidding.
I mean it’s not like I lost something tiny like a contact lens or a pair of earrings…a pan takes up space and can’t simply walk away on its own, right?
If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Otherwise, I will continue to be perplexed.
(If I DO locate this missing pan, I’ll update.)
