One left if you hurry....
So while cooking for my Mum's birthday BBQ on Sunday my oven blew up.... and I seriously mean BLEW UP. I heard a noise that sounded like a car backfiring and looked outside... but saw nothing. When I went to get my potato dish out of the oven it was covered in what looked like sand (turned out to be small ground bits of metal!).... there was white powder everywhere and a little bit of some sort of weird looking smoke. I looked and found that one of the elements had just *exploded*.
Me without an oven to bake in is a bit like wine without cheese.... cookies without cream..... Captain without Tennille!
I prepared these this morning and drove them up to my Mum's to bake in her oven. I am sitting waiting for the oven repairman.... hopefully normal (baking) business shall resume shortly!
