Do you have times like this when $$'s just fly out the door?
Well that was us!!
Our oven decided to stop working and when the service man told us what the part and labor would cost plus what we were paying for this visit we decided to just buy a new one. The cost would have been over $550 total so we just added another $100 and got a fantastic gas range/oven. Always loved white but being we were changing and not sure how long we'll be living here we decided on stainless.
I seriously miss my flat surface for more things than cooking. It was a substitute ironing space when I worked on my projects and a quick go over of some things to wear - it also held all my baking when it came out of the oven, like racks of cookies, etc.
Now I have to load up the counters with things but that's fine...baking is not high on my list these days anyway (don't need all those sweets!)
This particular style # by Samsung had the best consumer rating so that's what we bought. Very high BTU's on the burners so very happy for that and the oven has a 'dehydrator' mode....LOVE THAT. Used it a couple times already. Oh and a 'proofing' setting. LOVE THAT too! There's a griddle that fits over the center one.
I forgot to mention - it was just the oven that quit working - broiler still works and the burners...isn't that horrible to have a part cost that much?
I forgot to mention that Doug didn't care for the white microwave so he bought us a new stainless one...glad he did because as you can see by the second picture how unmatched it really did look.
Then on Saturday Doug finally bought his long desired 36" griddle!
He's seasoning it here (that's why the smoke)
He made 3 meals on it already - this is the first one.
Ham and hashbrowns!
Ham and hashbrowns!
Before we bought the griddle though we went to a flea market specifically to buy our mums - they have the best around and the prices are very reasonable.
We got these quite large ones 3/$40 ($13.33 each, can't beat that price for the size of them)
When we buy all our pumpkins and smaller mums next week we'll take those hangers off and put them where they belong.
That's all for this week
