Now we're cooking!

We just got our stove and oven in working condition again, after the gas valve was accidentally shut off a week ago. Which  meant that our crock pot got a lot of visits, as did the old electric skillet, a small electric burner and a George Forman grill. We learned what you can and cannot do on a single electric burner. Boil water? That would be a "no." (Although you can cook pasta by leaving it in the warm water long enough.)
On the whole, I think our culinary creativity got a real work-out--but I'm glad to be "cooking with gas" once again.

Be sure to indoctrinate a stand- in for the weeks that you will be on vacation. When you pass the torch and the toque on to the new chef, you may have to include a really good can opener. Bon appetit.

I reiterate:

It is said that from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Au contraire, from the abundance of the mouth, the heart speaketh.

I guess I am doing a monologue. I hope I am enjoying it. Anybody home?
