Operation Feed Them Roast

So I have to start this post with a story and pics from Saturday…

I cooked a turkey for friends on Saturday…

This is what happened to the oven…
The legs on the left side MELTED! About 2 hours into the turkey cooking! I hear a noise, look over and notice its lop-sided and that there is smoke. That’s because it’s doing this…
Um, that was a bed side table :(

Anyway, today’s a new day and they don’t call me McGuyver for nothing! I’m cooking a roast for friends (it’s been in the oven for 39 minutes and smells amazing already!!!) and I needed a quick fix, so here’s the plan…
Aluminum foil to protect the wood and an Ikea tea candle holder to prop the left side up…

Here’s the roast and veggies before going into little oven…

And so far my plan is working…


Outcome tomorrow :)

What’s for dinner at your house tonight?
And have you had a similar dinner disaster you avoided with a little McGuyver thinking?
