The Viking Section of Epcot
I'm a bit embarrassed to show you the stove I've been cooking on. I had a lovely stove, but I killed it. I cook so much that I kill kitchen appliances. When I sent my last decent stove to the great scrap yard in the sky, we moved a very old and ugly stove to the house. It was supposed to be "temporary". It worked and I'm not one to complain. Do you think three years is temporary? Well, C.S.Farmer and I spoke of getting a nice new stove, but we just kept being busy.
The temporary stove had some severe problems. The most comical was the fact that the door had to be closed with duct tape. This was becoming scary! I could cook with the help of duct tape. My years as a professional chef had not prepared me for this. I was scared that it would be too easy for C.S.Farmer to give me a replacement...another roll of duct tape!
Things were looking up when an acquaintance remodeled his kitchen and offered us his stove. We had come very close to purchasing something affordable and far nicer than the temporary stove, but we never completed the transaction. When C.S. went to pick up the stove, we were quite happy with the new one. It's a Viking gas range! I cook on Vulcan, Five Star, Wolf, and Vikings at work, but they aren't in our budget. I am so happy to have this beautiful new range. Allow me to introduce Thor.
No more duct tape for me!
