Holy crap this soup is good!
She packed both soup and main course in QVC “Lock & Lock” containers and sent me on my way. Tonight after the news I headed to the microwave.
Everything went perfectly. I took the top off. The soup heated nicely. To carry it back without spilling I loosely slid the lid on top but didn’t lock it down.
This is when science took over!
I’d laid the lid loosely, but as the bowl cooled a little of the water vapor in the air condensed. All of a sudden the pressure in the container was a lot lower than the pressure outside. The lid was locked by air pressure!
I tried wedging silverware under the seal, but no go. It’s designed to be airtight. Mission accomplished.
Finally a co-worker suggested reheating. All I could think of was exploding asparagus soup all over everything.
Sixty seconds later it’s soup! Crisis averted.
