Cooking Frustrations

Ugh…so for Thanksgiving I bake the biscuits and cornbread muffins for my dressing in advance (so they can dry out), normally on Sunday before Thanksgiving.

So, on Sunday, I was making a new chocolate treat for the family “Rolo Turtles.”  Square pretzels, unwrapped Rolo’s, and pecans.  Place the Rolo on the pretzel, and place in heated oven for 8-10 minutes.  Take out of the oven, and place (carefully) pecan on top (pressing down).  Let cool, and enjoy.

Well, I did those and turned off the oven.  About a hour later, I went to turn on the oven to preheat for the biscuits and muffins, and no heat. Nothing.  I have a gas oven, and the burners worked. Broiler worked. Looked like the heating bulb igniter went out.  This happened before when David was in Afghanistan (it is always when they aren’t home), but was told from the repair guy not to service it, but replace the oven instead if it happened again.

So in a panic, we have been shopping for an oven.  Lots out there, but none that could be delivered and installed before Thursday. Friday or even the following week, no problem. Ugh.

So, in frustration, David started looking up how to repair videos on YouTube. About a hour later, I have a working oven again.  Replacement part ordered from Amazon (for $18) to be delivered on Wednesday (just in case).

But now I want a new oven.  But I want  a lot of things.  Just really THANKFUL that I am able to cook, and enjoy the day.  Oh, and have some dressing.
