Simba, you naughty one, you!!! Simba cheated and found the answer but told me in an email like a good kitty. Paul...that was a great answer but too direct. Hehehe.
It's raining of course. We had our 3 days of sun. Here's the usual punishment of 9 days of rain coming right up. That has been going on for four years. No idea what changed the cycle so that there is so MUCH rain. I am not referring to temperature. Just rain.
Here is an example of a friend's recipe for scalloped potatoes that was prepared by that friend at my home and placed in my oven. Three and a half ! hours later it was still full of milk and burning on the top. The sliced potatoes that were inside and the onion bits were still uncooked after all those hours as she had poured an entire quart of milk into the casserole. I wondered at that but she said she knew what she was doing. And for a final how- do- you- do... the stuff boiled over onto my oven floor and created a horrible burned on mess. To my sorrow when trying to salvage the oven surface, the burner element will not stay in the "up" position so as to make trying to the clean up a bit easier. It's a one year old Whirlpool and they SURE don't make 'em like they used to. Less features, more cost. Trying to reach past the oven door so as to clean the oven floor AND with the element being held up with my one hand while I swiped at the horrible burned mess with the other is not my idea of fun.
S'nuff carping. (should thought of that before I started carping).
