The new stove has arrived! We are back in the world of real cooking. When we bought this house the appliances were all an almond color. I'm sure
that dates the house but when exactly was that color popular? This house flooded in about 1995 so I'm guessing that's how old the appliances were. Since we moved in 5 years ago we've had to replace the washer, dryer, refrigerator, and now the stove. The only appliance left is the dishwasher and it was only a year or so old when we arrived - how long do dishwashers last? I bought a new microwave immediately - a built-in to give me more room since the kitchen is really small - and chose a black and stainless one. Then the refrigerator died and the only one that would fit in that spot was black. So when I was choosing a stove black and stainless is what I went with. Isn't it gorgeous? And girls, it has 5 burners! It has the normal 4 but a 5th in the center! How handy is that? And a griddle, available for purchase separately of course, that will fit onto 2 burners and cook evenly all over. I'm thinking bacon and pancakes in one pan!
Take a good look at the clean oven - it probably is the last time it will ever be that clean because this morning I cooked these:
Six Week Refrigerator Muffins
I've mentioned these before. They are delicious and good for you (bran and fruit and all that kind of stuff). You mix them up and keep the mix in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks, baking only the number you want. If you want the recipe e-mail me and I'll send it to you.
