Sigh

I love cooking for people, so when our out-of-town guests offered to take us out to eat last night, I said, “No, No… I’ve got a roast ready to pop in the oven! No, No, No. Potatoes are already parboiled, green beans are snapped…No, No, No…”

About 10 minutes later, I heard a strange sound from the oven. It sounded like something had exploded.

Something had.

My meat thermometer – showering shards of glass all over the roast.

Well, we went out to dinner. πŸ™‚

Ever have days like that?

    I was making TWO cheesecakes in Oman (VERY expensive to buy cream cheese) and the oven ran out of gas. No chance of getting more that night. It was the main course for a friend’s birthday party. Sigh.

    Then another time I was making Thanksgiving dinner for a bunch of local friends and the oven ran out of gas again!! That time our second canister was full so Tom just switched it over, but it still caused a MAJOR delay in the partay.

    ps half-done cheescake is NOT yummy. Not like half-done brownies, for example……
