This Would Happen to Me

Today I have some slightly upsetting news. I thought I would share it all with you.

Yesterday evening we prepared some enchiladas for a very late dinner; as tired and as hungry as we were we still had to make dinner. While my husband was putting the enchiladas I turned the oven on to preheat it. Always preheat your oven.

While the oven was warming up, or so we thought, I got my daughter started on her bed time routine (she had eaten something else earlier).

So, my daughter is brushing her teeth when I decided to go back downstairs. That's when my husband gives me the news. The oven isn't working. Of couse my mind goes straight to the baking projects that I have thought up; not how we are going to cook our dinner.

He tried to light it, our stove is gas by the way, nothing worked. So, he decided to cook the enchildas on the grill. They turned out great, and we ate until we were stuffed. This entire time I keep trying to figure out how I'm going to bake.

After arguing with myself I have decided that I can't bake anything until it's fixed. I can, however, still make candy and try my hand at no bake cookies. I've never made no bake cookies before so that should be interesting.

So, there it is my friends. I am ovenless at the moment. I will try to keep you all updated and let you know what happens.


  1. Hi thank you for following me, I returned the favor. I am soo sorry about your oven. I hope you get it fixed soon. I love your attitude tho. Can't wait to see the non bake cookies. Do you have a toaster oven? I have made cookies in mine before. If you don't it may be a cheaper temporary fix.

  2. The broiler on my oven has been broken for over a year :) I just use my toaster oven. I hope your oven gets fixed soon, it's frustrating when kitchen appliances break, especially when you have meals planned! Good luck!

  3. I am so sorry...hope you get it all fixed soon.

  4. maybe your pilot light is out ...

  5. love your attitude and how positive you are about trying something new i would be freaking out and stressed thanks for the encouragement to stay positive let us know how your no bake cookies come out
