While visiting my in-laws in New Mexico, I had the bright idea to make a special dinner for the family. It was the first time they’d all been together in ages – my mother and father in-law, my mother in-law’s brother and his wife, along with my husband, his sister and brother.
While the circumstances of this gathering were unfortunate, we made the best of a sad situation and were able to really spend some quality time together, and I was finally able to get to know my sister in law!
I decided to make a lasagna, and for the first time in my life, I cooked using gas kitchen appliances!
I was terrified to light the pilot light so my father in-law did it for me. Ha ha! This city girl has never even seen a gas stove, let alone cooked on one! But it all turned out well and I received compliments all around.
I think Karma was watching me slave over that gas oven last night, because when I woke up this morning, I saw that my inbox had been paid a visit by the Fairy Hobmother, a sweetheart from Appliances Online, an online retailer who specializes in gas and electric appliances!
The Fairy Hobmother gave me a gift to spend on Amazon.com, and I’m already shopping for travel accessories – hopefully to use during our next trip to New Mexico!
