This discussion has reminded me that I really need to clean my oven. It's self cleaning so that's not the problem, but I put it off over the summer months because it heats up the kitchen so much. I don't have that excuse any more since it's been so cold out lately so I guess I better get on the ball and get it done.
Gabriel - I loved the story of Mona and the thermostat. Made me laugh out loud. Thanks for sharing. You never stop missing them do you?
