I bet not having a working stove/over doesn't help with the mood either.
The oven is definitely frustrating the h3ll out of me. Tried making a pumpkin pie for my dd boyfriend because he's going thru some serious health stuff right now & I wanted to cheer him up. Only by the grace of God did it turn out. I spent the first 15 mins trying to get the oven up to & stay at 400°. Then the next 50 mins on the floor in front of the oven with a flash light checking the oven temp. It was supposed to be at 350° and I had to keep increasing the oven temp to 495° to have the internal temp reach 350°. Finally it starting reading 350°, but then in about 10 mins the oven temp starting going too high. One moment I was opening the oven to let out the additional heat & changing the oven settings. Spent 50 minutes on the floor making constant adjustments grr... Did I also mention that the dishwasher is not working right anymore & that my 19 year old vacuum has just about crapped out. This housewife is on strike, lol.
