Putting Her to Work
I put my new range to work tonight! We had some friends over for a dinner before they are off for their month-long summer trip and I wanted to put my oven and stove through the paces. We had chicken sauteing, pasta boiling, carrots cooking, brownies baking and bread warming. I tried out the convection option on the stove and my 45-50 minute brownies were done in 28 minutes of baking plus some sitting in the turned-off oven.
I'm still getting used to it, but I like it!
And now, I have so much to do before my out of town company arrives on Friday. And when I say "so much" I don't mean cutesy little extras. I mean I've got a layer of grime to chisel off the bathroom floor (eww). If I'm scarce around here, that's why.
