Dilemma

I'm hiding.

This is one of the stupidest things I've ever done.

Supper is in one hour.

And I have no idea what to make.



That's not that unusual.

But it is when you consider that I got a lovely, brand-spanking new stove today.  Brand-new.  Blue-plastic covering the door-front new . . .

And it's so pretty!


And it's so clean.

I cannot decide what would be the best thing to make for her maiden voyage.

A simple, basic supper doesn't seem fitting . . . but it is only a Monday night.




Perhaps a cake?



My husband suggested a roast chicken, but it's too late for that now.

Now I'm down to easy, I-didn't-put-much-thought-into-this kind of meals.

But that doesn't seem right.

And I can't very well put some sort of ghastly frozen thing into it for the first time.



A cake then?

But what about supper?

Would you all laugh if I ended up getting takeout?



Okay, okay  . . . never mind.

Yes, take-out for tonight! That will give you more time to plan a meal on YOUR NEW STOVE!!

No, I don't think you're awful! Besides, I'm riding shotgun with the takeout.

I think you should order takeout and save the stove for the cake. OR make the cake and kiss the supper goodbye. What did Marie say, "Let them eat cake!" Only, I hope your head stays firmly in place! LOL!

XO,

Sheila :-)

I felt the same way when I got my new dishwasher in the fall. I didn't want to use it. It looked so perfect. Luckily I got over that quickly and I love it.

How about a Papa Murphy's pizza that you have to bake. They're so good and quick.
Then, make a quick dessert like a sheet cake.
Come on.... break her in.
Congrats!!

He He ...several years ago with a shiney new oven & the inlaws coming for Christmas I thought I'd roast a chicken to give it a trial run for the Turkey. I couldn't get the oven to work. So I spent about an hour with a lovely man on the telephone. It eventually dawned on us after much hilarity ( and mild hysteria from me ) that as we had bought the one on display in the shop .... someone ( probably a child ) had switched all the control knobs round !

So what did you eat ?

weza said...

hehe, so I am now wondering... what did you make?

Kelly A. Harmon said...

Me, too! I wanna know what you made. ;)

Thanks for visiting my artex heavenly home today! I would definately opt for the takeaway option, but then again if I planned to make something really special in it, it would probably be a disaster!! Marie x

Claudia said...

I totally understand that dilemma! I remember feeling the same way when we bough a new stove. What did you make?

A few years ago, we remodeled the kitchen and I got the stove of my dreams a 36 inch commercial DCS that I promptly named "Johnny" (I have a thing for Johnny Dep). The workman installed it and while they were putting up molding somewhere else in the kitchen, I made everyone eggs and bacon. That exhaust would take the paint of the hood of a car, love......
