“Fire GOOD!”

Picture me stumbling around the kitchen like Frankenstein on ecstasy, saying “Mmmm…MMMM…”

Indoor cooking has returned to our house!

A week or so ago, I returned from grocery shopping to discover our oven had screwed the pooch. (Not literally, but you never know. Our dog is up for anything.) After a week of chicken strips, roast beef sandwiches and the occasional microwave wrap, a hot meal cooked at home at 3 AM sounded like the most wonderful thing in the world.

Enter Spencer’s Appliance, located on NE Glisan. For $119, they delivered a clean, compact used kitchen range and hauled off the piece of crap old, broken one. The young man installed it, tested it and was gone in about fifteen minutes.

I shouldn’t knock the old one. When we bought the house, the folks gave us the option of keeping it or removing it so we could put in our own. We kept it as a temporary, and it lasted seven years. Seven years with a functional oven and one working hot plate. When cooking spaghetti, timing is everything. With four functioning burners, I will have to rethink my whole cooking routine!

What was for dinner? Cube steak burgers, with melted Swiss cheese. It was heavenly. Tonight? No idea yet, but it won’t be a microwave burrito.

Or chicken strips.
