NYE Dinner

Since it was raining, I didn’t feel too guilty about taking a nice long siesta before prepping dinner.  3 hours later (don’t judge!) I finally got to cookin.

My first challenge was trying to figure out the rather odd (and very small) range/stove.  I eventually determined that the Star icon was to light the various pilots and away we go!

My next dilemma was how to use the oven without – a) any kind of oven mitt b) no apparent temperature gauge and c) no vent for any excess smoke.  Fortunately, I’ve used enough ovens to be able to guestimate a temperature when I open the oven so that should hopefully be OK.

Your guess is as good as mine.

The other challenge was that this cooking equipment was apparently made for dwarfs, not giants like myself.

Tall man, little kitchen

Amazingly, I was able to put together a pretty damn good meal.  Rib eye with a Malbec mushroom sauce.


Our bellies full of meat and Malbec, it was time to relax and prepare for the looong night that awaited.
