More kitchen adventures.  It's not sounding good is it?  Not with that title?  Maybe I should have started with something a little more subtle?  LOL

I was cooking dinner and had some sweet potato fries in the oven.  When I went over to open the oven door, I reached for the handle and pulled.  At that moment, the entire front of the stove fell off.

And onto my foot.  Ouch!

And as if that weren't bad enough.  The next time that I reached for the handle, it broke off completely in my hands!  Its the long white thing on the counter.
 This is the piece that is supposed to be on the front of the oven, but is not.
Not sure what the next step is going to be.  I'm sure Roger is going to want to try to fix it.  (Of course, some of this is also already been "fixed".)  I'm wondering if this is the just the end of our oven.  We've been in our house for 12 years now and much that I read says that a typical life span for appliances is 10 to 15 years.  I really don't know.

I do know that it will be hard to fix meals without an oven!  I'm hoping we can borrow our neighbor's oven for tomorrow to make cookies that I had promised to make with Daniel tonight after dinner.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, we are open to them.  Never a dull moment in our kitchen, huh?

Hope your meal times have been a little less exciting than ours!  :-)



  1. Oh no! Your story, though, reminds me of my mom's kitchen before they remodeled it ... my cousin was going to open a drawer for a serving spoon and she took the entire drawer front off! I think it was just a few weeks before the cabinets were demo'd, but she looked horrified. LOL I can't imagine going to open the oven and have the door front come off.

  2. Oh My! I am sorry dear friend. I hope it is resolved and a hurry. Is you foot ok?

  3. whoah, they don't make appliances like they used to. Glad it didn't break your foot. :)

    I will email ya soon-not much to report, but we are good.

    Have a great rest of the week!

  4. You've certainly had some adventures in your kitchen recently! :) I think it's pathetic that ovens fall apart at 10-15 years. I'll be curious to hear if your husband can fix it. Until then, crockpot meals?


I love hearing from friends!!! Thank you for taking time to leave a comment!
