So ... I got the stove to work! I had to run it for about 45 minutes to let it do a "burn off." And I found the manual. Lucky because what I printed out would not have helped me that much.
And then it was time to get out my pie crust shields.
If you don't own these -- and you bake -- you should. They are marvelous.
I think it came out pretty well. Whaddya think?
I swear right now I am so full I may never eat again, but then ...
Right now though I am grabbing a shower and a few hours of zzzs so I can go shopping! Yes, I'm one of those.
