My Mother has moved into a Senior Living complex and no longer cooks, but has a full kitchen. DH and I visited for Thanksgiving and I made the side dishes there, the bird has ordered from one of the local restaurants (very good very).
Mom decided that she would help out by plating some the dishes.
She no longer had any serving platters nor bowls, so last week she went to the dollar store and got some of those rigid plastic types.
I had the oven on low to keep the turkey warm.
Mom put out all of the serving dishes out on the stove top...
We need to go to Sears to buy her new surface elements...
they're covered in melted hard plastic
that's okay Mom, we've all done it one time or another
DH said oh well, just turn the burners on and melt it off,
The smoke alone would set off the alarms that are
set to be uber sensitive, Mom would lose her kitchen privileges,
the complex cuts power to the range if that happens...
