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!  :-)
