Thank you, Beth!

May 15, 2019


On Tuesday, I received a cryptic message from Beth saying that I really should buy some Totino’s pizzas before coming home, I had just spoken to Lloyd and he was cryptic about having had a bad day, so I figured that Beth had the scoop and knew he needed pizza – STAT.

Well, those conversations proved to be unrelated. Lloyd’s day was just normal bad and Beth….. had dropped off a toaster oven for my summer kitchen!! (Brad, you have inspired us all.)

Beth stopped by after dinner and we christened it by bakin’ up a Totino’s party pizza. They’re square now, in case you were unaware.

It worked perfectly! Hooray!

Well, that could only mean one thing: time to work on the new and improved summer kitchen.

It needs a lot of work, but it is an excellent start for hot summer days. Thank you, Beth! (Speaking of hot weather, I have a funny one for tomorrow.)

    A most excellent summer kitchen. ?

    Toaster ovens are genius! You can make something hot without heating up the entire house because of the beastly-sized oven. You go, girl!

    I’m trying to decide between one of those or an air fryer. Anyone have thoughts on the subject?


    • Lauren Said on:

      I’ve never seen an air fryer in action, so I don’t know. I’d be curious to see how they work, though!

      Sorry I didn’t post my funny story last night. There is a critical picture I need to take first. Catch you tonight. 🙂

    Yay! I love my toaster oven. Re-heating things have not been the same since I got it… pizza, chicken… anything with a crispy or crunchy texture is amazing!
