How’s the rain treating all you cop and fire groupies? I love it, the flowers are starting to bud up all over the yard.
Yesterday I had planned on spending the day baking, made bread and cookie dough, but when I went to turn on the oven late in the afternoon, I found the lighter mechanism had gone out. I think my stove is about 18 years old, and it’s just fabulous. We bought it at Ginnos, from John, who always seemed to have a deal for us. This was a “floor model,” which also qualified as a “scratch and dent,” so John took more than $400 off the tag price, and we took it. It was a lot fancier than we were looking for, with a ginchee dash board and built in oven cleaner, but only a couple of hundred more than the standard disposable model we had in mind. Yeah, it was scratched and dented – my friends all said, “where?” and I had to show them. Who cares about looks, this baby has taken care of us all these years, it’s certainly worth a trip down to North Valley Appliance for a $90 part.
Unfortunately I just happened to have one of my bestest bread doughs to date laying on the board. Of course I didn’t even have to think twice – let’s throw that baby on the barbee!
I might have let the coals go too long – next time I will get the bread in there sooner. I almost thought we weren’t going to pull it off, and had to take a look.
