My Oven - 20th Day of Gratitude

Now I know I have been grateful for my ability to cook already this month. This is different.

Where we lived before this year, the oven wouldn't cook properly. You either had to wait an hour for 15 minute muffins, or burn them in under 5 minutes. It didn't have a "moderate" setting. 

When you are living on a tight budget, it is imperative to be able to whip up something from the basics you have in the pantry. Most of our snacks are oven baked. Sweet and savoury. 

So tonight as I was baking up a storm for lunch tomorrow, I realised how nice it is to once again be able to whip up some old favourites. Particularly since they will actually be palatable!

Today, I am grateful for my oven.
