Sterile Potatoes

So here I am all proud of myself that I was able to go to the grocery store and buy food in a Chinese grocery store. So on Monday I decide to try to cook myself lunch with some of this food. I stir-fry some broccoli & beef and I turn on the oven to bake a potato. After about 20 minutes I check on the potato to see how its doing. The dang thing isn't hot and has not cooked one bit. I press the only two buttons on the oven a couple more times and still have no success. I then give up and microwave it.

Last night I asked the president of Scott's company, Shu, if he can show me how to use the oven for future reference. He smiles and says, "What oven?". Hmmmmm. Turns out, what I thought was the oven is really a sterilizer for dishes. I start laughing really hard, almost to tears. Shu asks why. I manage to get the words out, "I sterilized my potato!" Everyone got a good laugh out of that one. I guess it tasted clean?

You can never be too safe when it comes to eating clean food!

How big is the sterilizer? Sarah wants to know. It could be the first dry shower for babies and small children!
