Of Ovens and Explosions

Standard

So, my gas oven blew up. Just after I started Tuesdays with Dorie. I was preheating, going to roast delicious vegetables, chopping merrily away, right next to my oven, when BOOM! The damn oven exploded. It’s gas. Yes, I just about crapped my pants – the dogs nearly did too. Thankfully, nothing more exciting happened the the explosion noise and the door blew open. But, since then, I haven’t been able to use my oven. Stove top works just fine.

I had to rewire my house, so I did that about two weeks ago and have been in the market for a new oven since. So yesterday, we bought one! It comes on Thursday, and I couldn’t be more excited! So I can bake again. Ugh, I will try to catch up.

Well, I’ve started this blog to do Tuesdays with Dorie. My Baking with Julia book is speeding through space to arrive in a few days. I ordered a couple of other books while I was at it – who can resist books??

I am a baker. I’ve worked in food for a time now, and I want to learn more. I think this will be a great way to do it.
