Broken Oven is Giving me the Hungry Blues

We interrupt this blog post to announce that my trusty Jenn-Air oven has completely given up the ghost. While it was limping along for a while with two operating temperature settings (350 and 375) that got us through Thanksgiving, it is no longer functioning at all.

Until I can get a repairman out to take a look at it, I’ll be limited to stovetop dishes. I’ve been down this road before (I’m thinking I’ll make this stovetop curry with pork), so what I can cook doesn’t worry me—paying to get the thing fixed does, however. In the meantime, I'l console myself with a little Charley Jordan. Here's his rendition of "Hungry Blues."
