cooking in the small house

There isn’t room for a stove in the small house. Technically, the landlord or I could get in trouble because I don’t have one; apparently there is a rule in town that every house must have one. Yet I’ve been using the electric skillet, and it’s worked just fine. I will also use the crock pot as I settle in, and the toaster oven once it arrives there. The weird thing is I still have pots and pans, but no stove to use them on. And I wish I had a pot to cook soup in… it heats well in the electric skillet, but I want a deeper pot rather than just the shallow one to cook in. Still, the space that a stove would take isn’t worth it. I barely used the stove when I had it. I’ll probably still get a burner from Walmart. They’re less than $20.


About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? Baptism!
