Typically, we go somewhere else for Thanksgiving (usually Husband's side of the family). That however does not stop Husband from buying and cooking a big turkey at our house. We then eat turkey sandwiches for a week (I am not complaining).
We moved into our townhome almost a year ago. The folks who owned this townhome before us did a little pimping in the kitchen arena (that is about 10 years old, most warranties have expired on major appliances). Apparently a Dacor stove is the goods. What do I know? This thing has a digital typepad for temp. control. Stupid thing about this pad? It is heat sensitive! Don't even get me started on why a stove has a temp. gauge that will "eventually short out from heat". That's brilliant! Long story short...$100 later, stove guy tells me it's going to cost $1200 to fix this stove! (replace the heat sensative pad with another heat sensitive pad) Ummmm...no thank you! I need to buy a new stove, but the burners work so, I've been getting by. Cue the biggest cooking holiday of the year...
Me: "Husband, I know you like to buy a turkey for us, but...let's skip it this year since we don't have a working stove."
Husband: "Too late."
Great, now I have a huge bird coming (he orders them from the butcher, it's coming today) and no stove to cook it in:P I suppose I need to go to Home Depot and buy a stove...right? I am so clueless on appliances. Seriously, I think I'd opt for torture over appliance shopping. Someone shoot me now...Anyone need an uncooked bird???
