Learning to Love Cooking!

About 12-13 years ago, my stove quit working---completely. Money was tight, so rather than purchasing a new range, I decided to have the old one repaired. It wasn't a cheap fix, but certainly less expensive than buying a new one. Besides, the repairman indicated that if I was lucky, I might be able to get 8-10 years more out of this one. So, when I remodeled the kitchen the following year, I chose to keep the old stove, despite its almond color (and the newly painted white cabinets surrounding it).

The stove has worked okay, but I knew its days were numbered. After all, I was already several years past the life expectancy of the repair---I think that it was actually about 24 years old. After a few months of research and contemplating the purchase, I splurged and got a really nice range. Today, the plumber delivered and installed it. I'm really glad he took the time to tuck that shirt tail in before he began---:-).

If fit perfectly and I love it!!!

It was a late work day today and then I went to exercise, but tonight I've been thoroughly reading the owner's manual so that I'll be prepared to use it tomorrow to make a yummy batch of granola!! My favorite part is the fact that I have a small top oven that I can use when it's just me (which is most of the time) and a large bottom oven when the whole family is here! Cooking is going to be a lot more fun!!!
