It was a challenge

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Cooking the Dinner for Thanksgiving, three out of four burners decided to kick the bucket,
all at the same timeI put in new fuses but that didn't work, and since it was a long week end there were no services open, thank goodness the oven worked, so I worked in relays the steamer helped a lot too.The big challenge was the gravy, I usually make it in the turkey pan using two burners,had to rethink thar and use a saucepan and my one burner.
Had a nice glass of red wine to help through my ordeal. emoticon
The meal turned out well.

    Wow I'd have been in a blind panic. Well done for coping & producing a great family meal.

    Great that you just calmly (?!) improvised with what you had available.

    I remember one Christmas when we had a power cut hal way through cooking the meal, which cut off our electric oven. Fortunately the hob was gas, but I had to do my "roast" potatoes in the wok!
