Well, it's official, the old propane range is in rather poor shape. We can use the burners, but the oven is out of commission. So...we are either going to need to use the toaster or the wood stove.
The wood stove is more fun. I made the cornbread in the dutch oven. Learned I had to shut off the blower on the stove, but after that, it cooked up nice. Absolutely perfect consistancy and crust. I am going to try some more things over the coming weekend and this time, try to remember to take pics. I would suggest anyone with a stove try this, it's neat-although odd to see a pot in the living room! Cast iron is the way to go, it's so even and consistant. We used the frying pan to make eggs and bacon, and they warmed up nice and were non-stick-more so than our stainless pans. Plus the bacon helped season the cookware too!
