This Is Not Needed Right Now

Houston, we have a problem.  The oven is no longer heating up.

Look, I’m stuck here at home, and I happen to NEED to feed the family, as well as maybe bake some things (and for crying out loud, EASTER IS THIS SUNDAY), and THIS is the time that the oven decides to give up???

After some diagnostic work, we discovered the problem was that the bottom heating element had died.  This oven is over 20 years old, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.  However, this timing stinks.  (The broiler/top element still worked, so dinner was saved.)

The Webmaster looked up our oven model and found a replacement element – which, even though it is substantially cheaper and easier than buying a whole new oven in this current lockdown, will not arrive until AFTER this Easter Sunday.


I guess I need to change up the menu…
