My least favorite chore – cleaning a self-cleaning oven.
There’s very little a self-cleaning oven does well.
- It stinks up the house and makes the room very hot.
- You have to take out all the shelves and side bars
- It really doesn’t remove any hard baked-on grime from, oh let’s say, blueberry pie!
So I went at the oven with good old fashioned Easy Off and a Brillo pad. I have yet to take the racks outside to scrub with Brillo but will do later, or tomorrow, once the rain stops.
Speaking of outside, the other day, a GIANT Chinook-like helicopter went over the house, so low that the house shook. By the time I got the camera and got outside, he was pretty far away. Coincidentally, it was the same day I was moosing online for a drone. Hmmmmmm.
PS: I’ve decided to go with a huge pan of paella on Christmas Eve and for Christmas Day, my classic and highly acclaimed marinated butterflied leg of lamb, that, after three days marinating, I cook up on the BBQ. It is sinfully delicious, even for people who say they don’t like lamb.
