It's 1950 in My House

Yesterday marked a very special day in my house. For Thursday, December 7, 2006 was the day that this hideous 20+ year old behemoth

with its disgusting interior, which I so obviously haven't cleaned in quite some time

was replaced with this beauty.

Yes, my friends, I have a new stove. An early Christmas present from my mom. Truly, there aren't adequate words in the English language to describe how excited I am about it. And I'm not ashamed to admit it, even though this marks this second time in less than one year that I've become unnaturally thrilled by a kitchen appliance.

Now, it's not the uber expensive stove of my dreams. In fact, it's just your basic white electric stove. But it's new! There are no drips of unknown origin all over the interior door. There are no collections of years' old food particles banding together to form a militia on the stove floor. It's new and it's shiny and it's mine, and I can't wait to break it in.

My goal this weekend (and it's a tentative one at that) is to make Christmas cookies in it. Sugar cookie cutouts. And if I don't have time for that, perhaps I'll just curl up next to it and stroke it lovingly. We're going to be so happy together.

    And maybe some nice, shiny, new cookware will appear on top of that stove soon too!

    This is, indeed, a momentous occasion. Bake away!

    We have the same oven!!! However, I believe that you will use your oven more than I use mine ;-)

    How great, a new stove! You have to bake something in it, even if it is just break and bake cookies.

    You made those peanut butter cookies you sent me in that thing? EWWWWW!

    All kidding aside, I'm amazed that you were able to consistently bake up goodness in that old ass stove.

    O that every Christmas cookie would have the chance to be baked in such a fine place.

    Nice. I'm gonna ask for some new applainces. They'll fit in my luggage, right?

    Congrats! A new appliance does give new inspirations, doesn't it?
    BTW...I have aspirations of baking the pumpkin cake you sent me this weekend! :)

    Oh, how great for you! I need one badly, but I am pretty sure that Santa has other ideas. Show us the cookies, okay?
