Out with the old,
In with the new.
The new stove is an induction stove and it is A-MAZ-ING! I fell in love with it the minute I used it and cannot imagine using anything else now. It is fabulous, and is one of the best Christmas presents ever!
This morning brought us a lazy day with not much planned. It was finally the right time to check out this stoves ability to bake cookies, and also to begin yet another new tradition here: baking gingerbread people. I say 'people' not to be politically correct but because we have gingerbread men and women cookie cutters. And in a house of girls the odds are good that we are going to have to make some gingerbread girls.
It was a very sweet ending to a very sweet day.
