Interesting times in my house...

Do you remember my grandma's stove??
This is it. Well... this "was" it!
3 days before Christimas Eve the glass of the oven exploded!
My grandma, my uncle and my mom were in the kitchen when it happened. It made a very loud noise and there were little pieces of glass everywhere! I wanted to know what had happened but they did not let me in until they picked up all the broken glass.
The next day my grandma bought a new one. It was installed and ready to cook. Buuut... my mom did not like it! She says it needs to be adjusted.
Soooo.... she decided to bake our Christmas cake in her own stove.
Yes. We have a little kitchen in our house but let me tell you something. I have been here for 5 years and I had never seen my mom turning on the stove! Ooops...

I am worried...
Are you sure you know how to use it, mom??

I will be here with you mom... just in case you need me



Not ready yet??

The whole process and.... Taaaa-Daaaa!
Homemade German Cake!

She let me taste the covering...

And it was yummy!
Good job mom!

I hope... from now on... she will use more her stove!

Have a good night

Lorenza, that cake looks yummy! And it is very pretty too. Your mom did a great job and I know your snoopervising is what helped her most.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Oh no!! The stove exploded? That is scary and we hope nobody was hurt! The cake sure looks very good and yummy!!! We bet your mom knows all about cooking...unlike my mom! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

I'm sure that cake would not have been made if not for your active snoopervising! Good work! (And I'm glad no one was hurt in the oven explosion event! Eeesh!)

Kathy's Klothesline said...

Good for your mom!! Oscar, Emmy, and Wall-E like to be in the kitchen when I am cooking, too. They really like tastes!

You've had a lot of excitement at your house lately, Lorenza! Glad no one was hurt and that you got to try a piece of that yummy cake!

Stella said...

Hey Lorenza, now that your Mom is no longer a stranger to your stove, maybe she will bake you some

Sounds like a good idea to me, too.
Its good to see you perky and all well again>

Good grief! An exploding stove! We're glad you weren't in the kitchen and that none of the humans were hurt [were they?]. Did your grandma's stove finally get adjusted? Good thing your mom had a back-up stove, right before Christmas and all.

Why on earth would your cousin think you needed socks, blue or otherwise? You're not scratching anything you shouldn't, we hope. It's good to see you looking so well. We infer the lab tests were good and all is well. That's the best Christmas present of all.

Excuse our asking, but who's the little naked terrier running around in your video? Maybe he/she was introduced earlier in your blog and we just missed it.

Happy New Year!

Jed & Abby

Ellen Whyte said...

Martha said...

That cake looks very yummy! Our mum watches cookery programmes, buys cookery books and only occasionally cooks!
What a fright your humans must have got when the stove exploded!
We are glad everyone was OK and we are sure everyone will soon get used to the new one.
So glad you were there to help your mom with that cake............!
love and kisses

Dexter said...

I have never heard of an exploding stove before. That must have been very impressive. Good thing nobody got hurt.

As for your mom in the kitchen. Yeah, mine is the same way. Only goes near the stove to wipe the dust off of it. But it looks like your mom figured things out and made some good noms.


Marg said...

Love your coat Lorenza. That is so fancy. And Wow, that cake looks good. We know that your snoopervising did the trick in making it so good. Wish we were there. Hope you have a great day.

ocmist said...

It is scary to know that a stove can explode! We, too, are so glad no one was hurt. Looks like your Mom knows how to make a really pretty cake, too.

Papa got an unexpected bonus from his work and got Grammy a new stove cause our other one hasn't worked for over 6-8 months (and then only 1 burner for the past 4-5 years)She's been using a toaster over, an electric skillet and a Microwave to cook with. She is SOOO happy to have a working stove with an OVEN!

Hope you are having a great weekend! The CCC
