Holidays and my kitchen just don't want to get along. Yesterday afternoon my oldest son and his SO arrived for a week, big Thanksgiving dinner at his brother's place again. His daughter bought a house earlier in the year and has a dinner party for him today. Since my husband is just not up to visit and I can't help, I decided to bake and do some sides for both occasions.
Supper last night, chicken and garlic bread. Chicken is done, Garlic bread in the oven, all off a sudden smoke out of the oven, temp. indicator on oven says cool/clean, it dings, smoke alarm goes off, can't shut off stove. Had to switch circuit breaker off. Stove would not re-set this morning, so I am off to buy a new stove this afternoon. At least I should have a new one by Thanksgiving for the pies and gravy I promised. I had one stove break on me once while the turkey was in the oven.
