Waiting - not my best attribute

    Still without a stove - they have promised to come on Monday (the part has arrived) but were supposed to send me a "robo-call" with the time but no message so far. I will just have to wait and see, I guess.

    I am managing without the stove quite well although yesterday I just had a cheese toastie for dinner. I have made soup and stew in the rice cooker so far and made my breakfast omelet in it today. I also made a batch of green tomato chutney which turned out well. Tonight I am going to try to cook chicken thighs in it, in a salsa sauce with mushrooms. The main inconvenience is that there are only two settings - cook and keep warm, so there is no way to control the heat. So far I haven't burned anything!

   I will have the fire on tonight as it has turned quite cold. It will be chilly on the tennis courts tomorrow!


  1. It is amazing how creative being without a stove can make us. I haven't had a working oven for 20 plus years and have learned to do without now.

    1. I'll be interested to hear some of your tricks - although hopefully I won't need them after tomorrow. Tonight it's a catfish fillet in the toaster oven and cabbage and sweet potato in the rice cooker.

  2. When my oven went the instant pot, microwave, and the toaster oven became my best friends. Hope your stove is fixed very soon.

    God bless.
