    "On the back burner" would be my guess.

    What about 'a watched pot never boils'?

    That is an idiom, but I wouldn't get that from this picture.

    I'd go for "Put it on the back burner" too. It means to postpone something, usually to leave it alone for a while and then go back to thinking about (or doing something about it) later.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
