Woohoo! We bit the bullet and bought a new oven to replace our broken one – now I’m going to have to find somewhere else to hide the chocolate biscuits. I never thought I’d see a 12 year old, a 10 year old and a seven year old so excited about a kitchen appliance but apparently they’ve felt the loss of roasts, baked goods and proper macaroni and cheese as keenly as I. So, I asked them this morning what they’d like for the inaugural oven run, for dinner tonight. I was thinking baked chicken drumsticks, baked spuds, quiche. They thought: homemade pizza. I have a beautiful new oven. But for the lack of having an oven, I no longer have yeast, tomato paste, melty mozzarella, pineapple or any of the toppings we enjoy on homemade pizza. I have potatoes and eggs and no time to run into town for supplies before tomorrow morning. Wish me luck on the eggy potato pizza, won’t you? It’ll be on a lovely scone dough pizza base. Mmmm good?
