Cooked two dinners today. Tonight's meal was beef bourguignon with salad...and wine. Photo at msmofet's request.

I made ham and bean soup also. Will post that pic tomorrow.

Can't mess a cooking surface up too much when you're always nuking leftovers from eating out.
Yeah, I was all fired up for the ceramic cooktop but it is a pain to keep clean. And it only looks good when it's clean! Next time I look to get a range I will think about the traditional electric ones. Seems there ought to be something better than the old style electric ranges though!

If I have to buy another range before we move from here (with my only option being electric) I'd probably check into the solid element one. - they look like they have metal Frisbees for cooking burners. I saw those when we were looking and they appealed to me...well, except for the price. I remember them being higher than what I spent. I'm sure if I had actually had time to crunch numbers I would have ended up with one of those. Then there's my cooking dreams...dual burner range with a center grill and a monster vent above. *sigh*
