1. Clean oven door glass – even in between the glass
It’s embarrassing to admit, but the glass on my oven door was so grimy that you couldn’t even see through it. It’s been that way since I roasted a chicken a long time ago. The chicken splattered all over the oven and I never cleaned it.
So the other day when I saw something about cleaning the oven door glass with a magic eraser, I decided to give it a try. It worked, but I had to use a razor blade in addition to the magic eraser. It didn’t take very long to do – maybe 15 minutes.
But once we could see through the glass, we could also see between the glass. There were a few old spills in there, and also a spider web! What in the world was that spider thinking!
I googled how to clean between the glass on an oven door and found that you can take the door apart. That part was easy. Cleaning it was easy.
Putting it all back together again – not so easy.
Jim fiddled with it for a while and finally got it fixed. The whole thing looks so much better now.
2. Making my daughter think I’m famous 😉
This is the conversation that happened when my youngest child texted to ask what was for dinner. She didn’t know what Reuben Calzones were, so she googled it.
Reuben Calzones were on our Weekly Meal Plan. They were really good!
3. Impromptu dinner for 8 after church
I had a feeling we’d end up with a crowd at our house after church, but we hadn’t talked about it so I didn’t make a plan. After church I realized there would be eight of us.
I had cheese tortellini bought at Costco the day before. I also had chicken breasts to throw on the grill. My oldest daughter suggested we turn the pasta into pasta salad. It didn’t take too long to pull together when we all worked together. Jim grilled the chicken. I made the pasta salad and my oldest baked cheddar muffins.
