Tuesdays with Dorie - No Post for the Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler

Sorry, no post from Sherrytrifle this week! You won't believe what happened! I bought some lovely cherries, couldn't find rhubarb so got blackberries instead, and was all set to do my baking. Oven thought differently - it went completely on the blink and gave off a horrible, alarming smell of gas instead of heating up. I called the gas company - they were at my place in 10 minutes and after testing a couple of things, they said my oven was finished! It had decided to stop igniting after about 12 years, so I suppose that's not too bad. Just a pity it happened at challenge time.

This evening I went to PC Richards and checked out some Frigidaire ranges - seems the medium-lower priced ones are better - the fancy ones are way too complicated for me. Tomorrow I will go back and get a new range. Meantime, I have to sit on the bench.

What a bummer. At least you'll get a nice brand new one. :)

Yay for the new oven! Can you come over and kill mine so I can get a new one? Don't forget to include a pic of the new oven next Tuesday!

Well, that stinks,huh? Sorry about the oven, but it did give you 12 good years. Happy cooking/baking on the new one!

Oh, too bad about the baking!

The bad news: you need to get a new oven.

The good news: you get a new oven!

Oh my gosh, we are leading similar lives! I couldn't bake off my cobbler because when I went to preheat my parents oven (I'm visiting them in VT right now), the whole kitchen filled with smoke and flames shot out! You're not alone :)
