Hot Stuff

I've been fighting with my old second-hand gas stove for a few years. The stove didn't have the right orifices when we got it and the flames were never high. The only eye that ever got anything hot finally started getting lower and lower. Every night when I started cooking I would begin to gripe about my crappy stove. Don told me that I should get a new stove and quit complaining about it. He said I could pick out any stove I like.

I wanted to get a stove with a convection oven. My mother has one, and it's really nice. I began going to the stores around here looking at different ones. At first, I thought about getting a stainless steel stove. I even thought about getting a white stove to match my cabinets in the kitchen.

I went to Lowe's and Home Depot in Dalton and looked at them. I also went to Home Depot in Calhoun. After I saw the stove I was interested in I went back several times to try to decide which color I wanted to get. I found a five burner stainless steel GE gas stove in Dalton, but when I went to the Calhoun Home Depot I saw a GE in a new color, slate. They were both alike except for the color. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

The sales lady in Calhoun told me that the stove was on sale. 

I took Don with me to look at the stoves Saturday. He and I both agreed on the slate colored stove. I decided to go to Calhoun and order my stove on Tuesday. When I got there I found out that the stove on display was on clearance. I love a sale! I was so happy, I bought a matching over-the-stove Adora microwave. I rushed home to tell Don and he and I went back to pick up my new appliances. 

I haven't got the microwave over the stove yet. The guys are going to have to do a little renovation to make room for the new microwave. I'm tickled to death. I'm not used to such luxury. 

Every dinner is an adventure. Tonight I cooked a roast in my blue speckled pan and it turned out golden brown. I can't believe it. I made some delicious biscuits that rose like a dream. Maybe I'll begin to enjoy cooking again. It's hard to believe that something as simple as a stove can make a woman so happy. Maybe I'm becoming Betty Crocker. We'll see.

Happy birthday to me. I made out like a bandit.
