What's cooking ... or not

My oven died. Right in the middle of a batch of brownies, of all things.

So I'm keeping an eye out for a good deal and just relying on the crock pot and microwave for now. I'm not in a big hurry to get a new one, so I hope a great sale pops up.

This happened on the heels of our spring break trip to New York, which was insanely expensive and physically exhausting - wheelchairs and NYC do NOT go together. But DS had a grand time, so there is that.

Spring might have finally arrived. At least my nose knows the pollen has. I'm actually hoping it stays cool just a few days longer as the A/C is out on our van. Parts have been ordered and will likely arrive in time to be installed next week. It should all be under warranty. When I took it in, I also found out there's a recall on the van seat, so that will be fixed, too.

Adulting is hard work.

Happy Thursday all,



  1. Just in case you need a brownie fix while the oven is down here is a recipe for microwave brownies. It saved my life when I was without an oven

  2. Oh wow... I can relate to not having a real oven. I use my Ninja cooking system for an over. I have a microwave - convection oven but need a stand for it. I need to make one because the floor is so uneven in my kitchen.

    1. I don't think you appreciate a real oven until you don't have one!

  3. Sure hope the a/c is covered by warranty!! Too bad your oven isn't though you've likely had it a goo long time! I think I could manage without an oven for quite a while. I can imagine New York and wheelchairs don't mix well - glad you persevered!

  4. Got the car back and warranty paid it all - woo hoo!
