Yup, the new oven knob is not the correct oven knob. I was lied to. Of course, returning it will be an absolute bother, so they get to keep my money. Ugh.
The new oven knob arrived. It fits, but it doesn’t seem to be the correct one. The temperature markings are wildly different from the old one. I can’t find my oven-proof thermometer, but I’ve set it for 300°, and I know what a 300° oven feels like. I mean, I can tell the difference between 300° and 400° anyway.
I’m so tired of oven problems. There’s a temptation to buy a new one, but it won’t be 100% gas, and I don’t want my cooking dependent on the electrical grid in any way. I’ve got to get this thing working again.
I’d thought I would slice up the rest of the turkey and stick it in the freezer, but I’m feeling lazy, so we’re going to eat turkey again tonight. I’m a bit tired of turkey, but it’s there and it’s already cooked.
I would just like to report that the original MacGyver isn’t dumb like the reboot. There was more MacGyvering in the intro segment than there was in the entire first episode of the reboot. I enjoyed it, and while the husband complained when I said we would be watching more of it (and called it dated), I saw him enjoying it too. 🤣
I’ve decided that we will watch the first episode of the original MacGyver tonight. Just want to see if it is also as dumb as the reboot. I hope not, because I used to love that show.
