Let’s All Celebrate…

I learned how to turn on my oven. It only took me two months to get over the fear that I had to actually light the thing myself.

When I was first told that I had to manually light the oven I thought there was no way in hell I was going to reach my hand into a gas oven and light it. I like my fingers and arms just the way they are.

Ends up, as long as I have one of those long lighter thingys I don’t have to reach my hand anywhere.

My first dish in the oven? A semi-vegetarian lasagna (I added beef flavoring. I couldn’t resist. I’m from Texas.) that was quite tasty if I do say so myself.

No matter for the moment. If I find an oven thermometer I’ll get one. If not, I’ll keep guessing and hoping for the best.

  1. “Girl, you should have been in Ghana with me when I had to light my propane oven!!! Hahahaha… There is no temperature on it either. I baked a whole chicken, which was killed in my yard and de-feathered in my kitchen prior to my preparing it. Oh, and I made a cake — should have taken it one hour to bake, Noooooo, two hours in the oven without a temperature indicator. i am purchasing an oven thermometer for my return to my home. I became a pro. Kelli — welcome to real-world baking!!! Congratulations… hugs, too.
