I have a working oven again! A week without oven usage just about killed me. We had a bit of an incident last weekend.
While preheating the oven last Saturday night, my oven heating element burned through. It was a bright fiery orb. Sort of like having the sun in your oven. So bright that after the flame subsided we had spots in front of our eyes.
A month ago I got a cute little Wilton mini pie pan. On clearance, of course. If you know me, you know I refuse to spend money on that sort of thing unless there is a good reason or a good clearance.
I realize that this sort of pan will not be used enough to blink at. I’m hopeful that I will find lots of reasons to use it and it will be fabulous. BUT, I am realistic enough to know that it will probably become one more kitchen gadget that I don’t have room for and it will live in the basement. It will end up a waste of money. And possibly a Goodwill donation two years from now.
It’s our niece’s birthday. Happy 16th, V!
A few lucky folks in her life may get her to share a cupcake with them.
I was tapped to make the birthday girl’s cupcakes. Several hours of my weekend were devoted to making 2 kinds of yummy cupcakes. I’ll share one today and we’ll talk about the other later.
