Have you ever noticed how charming it is to come lake home to a steaming tepid meal on a winter’s afternoon? Similarly, it is wonderful to be the a single doing the cooking, plus the eating! That is because it just makes sense that you would want to use your oven more when the temperature control dips both outside and inside, however i live in the south, and throughout most of the year, I use the a/c; luckyly for me, though, our part of the state does appreciate some change of seasons, so for a few weeks each year, both of us have the need to run the heater; That means that both of us can envelop ourselves in fluffy overcoats and leather boots, and even better, both of us can feast on tepid crusty rolls dipped in the gravy of a pot roast that has been heating the home via the oven all afternoon.
In the summer, it seems the best I can do for meals is throwing together a cold salad and picking up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.
I hope you don’t want the skin crispy because I am not turning on the oven only to have it argument against our a/c! When the cooler months beginning rolling in, however, I am ecstatic to beginning wearing forest red and brown, picking up the occasional pumpkin spice latte, and spending the afternoon using the oven as a furnace while some delicious stew or oven roast simmers its way into tenderness. I have to use the heating at evening, oftentimes to keep the pipes from cold, however when I am lake home during the afternoon – on weekends – I am glad to use a throw on the couch and the oven when I am cooking. That way, the furnace switch can stay turned off and I can save money!
