Here’s a picture of the stove just as it died. Prior to this, every light on the display, including the night light and the oven light were lit up. Then, everything just quietly faded away until only this sad little “J” showed.
We also thought you might get a kick out of the clock/radio display. Now, keep in mind, this clock does not have a military time option.
In an effort to “make do” without a stove, She has tried to come up with things that could be prepared using only the microwave, toaster oven and George Foreman Grill. Because She had bought the ingredients for Chicken Salad, She pressed on and accomplished that, at least!
She was able to “boil” the chicken in the microwave, and toast the pecans in the toaster oven. After that, it was just a matter of assembling the ingredients.
Topping a buttery croissant with the chicken salad and adding a slice of cheese.
She couldn’t even wait to take a couple of bites until after pictures were done!
The large bowl of chicken salad provided several meals for them. Now that it’s gone, She is trying to come up with more quick and easy recipes that can be prepared with the tools she has on hand.
The repairman has orderd a part ($600 and under warranty, thank goodness!), and will be returning on the 13th to install it. A replacement alarm clock was bought, as well as a clock/radio, and they are still waiting to find out about the recumbent bike. So, slowly, but surely, things are getting back to normal. Well, OUR normal, at least.
