Oven Update

So the repairman comes over yesterday morning as scheduled. He pokes around the oven and asks me to turn off the breaker to it so he doesn't get electrocuted. Score one for Heather, I learned which breaker turns off the oven. Yay. For. Me.

Repairman asks me how old the oven is. I tell him I assume it is the original oven that was installed when the house was built...which was about 25 years ago. He agrees with my assessment and does more poking.

Finally, he thinks it could be the heating coil. So, he orders one, which will come to my house. He will come back next Wednesday and install it. He's not sure if this will fix everything, but it's a start.

So, I have to go another week without an oven. This is extremely annoying. I'm having to look in my recipe box for stove top recipes because most things in my culinary arsenal have to be baked. I made green bean casserole on the stove top last night. Brother thought it was the shit.

I just thought it was shit.

Why can't you use your BBQ grill as an oven? Or you can come over to my place to bake cookies....

Too bad you don't have gas.

I know.

But I have a chef-worthy gas range that I will be selling. Power-burners, covection oven, all chrome and black. Every bit as nice as a Wolf Range, just $6k cheaper!

Not trying to turn your blog into Craig's List or anything. It just sounds like you are exactly the type of person who would enjoy what I have to offer. So to speak. LOL!
