When 38 won’t go into 34 . . .

After talking with Nick and Terry we decided to do hot dogs and brats on the grill this evening, so we will pick up some stuff for this.

About 1pm Jan and I drove over to the nearby Wal-Mart for groceries and stuff. And one of  the ‘stuffs’ we picked up was a new Farberware Countertop Convection Oven like this one, except ours is black.

And it even has a rotisserie. Not that I ever think we’ll use it.

We tend not to do a lot of rotisseriering. But Jan is giddy over her new toy.

It’s also NOT digital which has caused us problems on the last two toaster ovens we’ve had.

Leaving Wal-Mart we stopped off at Martin’s Grocery to pick some other things. From there we got a couple of fresh salad items, i.e. Steakhouse Potato Salad and Broccoli and Cheese Salad. We also picked up a Coconut Cream Pie for Terry, Jan and I, and a Lemon Pie for Nick, who doesn’t like coconut.

For us, we got some of their fresh muffins for breakfast the rest of the week.

About 5:30 we headed next door and got the hot dogs and brats on the grill. It was a perfect evening for it, with most of the holiday rigs having left the park for parts unknown.

The food was great, and the dessert a little later inside, was really good too. All in all, a very nice day.

Here’s a couple of videos I thought ya’ll might enjoy.

Salut Salon. A really great quartet. And funny too.


Why 38 won’t go into 34. Do the Math.

There is a rumor going around that Miss Terry will be smoking ribs tomorrow. We’ll have to see how that pans out.

Thought for the Day:

I have a mind like a steel…thingmabob…you know…doohickey.

  1. I’m not sure which video impressed me more!

  2. We also decided to forego the digital…but that was mainly because we liked the rest of the one we got…wanted it to be convection. I think Jan will love yours too!! TIs fun to experiment.

  3. If you have a modified sine wave inverter and have operated your digital oven using it, its a good chance that’s the reason for the failures. Over prolong usage, I have had similar problems. Switched to dials and end of my problem.

  4. Bob,

    The toaster oven was never operated on the inverter, and it did last almost 3 years anyway.

    I think its time was just up.
