Some days I just have to wonder about all the crazy, weird things that happen around here. I’ve had my old Nesco air roaster (which is really a convection roaster) for at least 15 years. I love that thing. I don’t use it weekly but I probably use it at least once a month. I was going to cook the turkey tomorrow in the Nesco. You know where this is going, right? I got it out to be sure the turkey fits and then some little voice in my head told me to make sure it’s working. Turned it on and no . . nothing. Had Vince look at it, take the little plug thing apart and nothing is working. Nesco roaster is history. I need to cook my turkey tomorrow. There are no Nesco air roasters in this town. I wouldn’t go shopping anyway. I asked Vince if he has a clue where our big roasting pot is. Haven’t used that thing in years. Nope, not a clue. Chad doesn’t want the turkey smoked. Hmmm . . turkey sushi maybe?? Nope, that’s not a good idea. I do have a big pan that will hold the turkey but I’ll have to cover it with foil as there’s no lid. It will all work out.
I truly thought we were finished buying kitchen gadgets but a new roaster is on its way, or I guess it won’t be on its way til next week but we ordered it today. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that nothing else breaks around here.
On a good note, I went out to get my tiny little crockpot to use for some sausage/BBQ sauce for tonight and in the crockpot, with the lid on, was the extra set of keys to my car that I’ve been missing for a couple of months! That made me happy and I even vaguely remember sticking the keys in the crockpot but I don’t remember my reasoning for doing so. Oh, yes, I remember. When Vince and I went to Louisville, I took one set of my keys with me because they had a house key on them. I didn’t want to leave the other set in plain sight just in case Chad decided to “borrow” my car. I stuck them in the crockpot. Dang . . I would never have remembered having done that. It’s bad enough that I can’t remember anything any more but then I go and hide things from myself on purpose!
