Home Cooking, Episode 17: Last of the Wood Stove Meals

We've had a brief cold snap with a bit of rain (and snow in the Sierra Nevada), so I re-lit the wood stove for what I hope will be the last time this season. Having the wood stove hot on a Sunday morning, I took the opportunity to use it to cook part of a big breakfast.

Sunday Breakfast

While I cooked hash brown patties and broiled a couple of Polish sausages in the toaster oven, I cooked an omelette on the wood stove. As we do not have a stove-top in the house, I can't cook an omelette this way except when the wood stove is live, and cooking an omelette in the microwave oven doesn't seem quite the same. It takes much longer to cook this way, but it usually turns out better, as long as I'm patient.

I'm glad that I had a big breakfast, because I had several hours of fannish meetings to attend today. I'm glad my meetings at the Day Jobbe don't last that long!
