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?
Gee you are one Hot cook, too!!! Be careful there “Julia”…
The house smelled divine and it was yummy!
McGuyver should take a back seat. That said the Roast looks appetizing.
It was delicious!
Oh, that’s so funny. Only you….ha!
That roast was yummy!
Well .. there was the year that we lost power for 4+ hours and couldn’t start roasting the bird till nearly 2pm — all 27lbs of it!
Wow!!! So 15 minutes per pound… you ate a very late Thanksgiving dinner! And 27 pounds… YOWZA that’s a humongous turkey!!
yep it was a scramble to get the darn thing cooked but it turned out great and I don’t think there’s a better smell than roasting turkey/chicken!
Nothing better, indeed 🙂
Those are some mad McGuyver skills you have there, Sandi! But its been pretty amazing with what you’ve done without a kitchen!!
LOL… I’m a fly by the seat of your pants kinda gal 😀
lol . . . That’s the ONLY way to fly! . . . especially for strong, confident women!!
MY “OVEN!!” Haha. Only in China.
Yes! Your melty oven, lol!
