For a while I had my 18-qt table top roaster sitting on the floor. The reason for this was a pantry that was just way to full of food to fit the roaster in it after I had used it. So it sat on the floor in a “safe” place waiting until we could eat up some of the abundance that was crowding my pantry. Unfortunately some of my children decided to roughhouse a bit and they stepped on the temperature control knob, snapping it into two pieces. I did not notice this problem until I went to use it to cook up a huge quantity of beans. It was really funny to try to set the temperature when the knob was broken, lol. I had to match the two pieces together and hold them together to find out what it was set at. But those beans got cooked. Sometimes I am very determined.
And I am cheap. There is no way I was going to replace my roaster oven just because of a broken control knob. But I also did not want to spend a lot getting it repaired, or be inconvenienced every time I use it. So I determined to buy super glue and fix it. Of course every time I went to the store I forgot to pick up a tube of glue. That is how my mind works, I forget things until I need them. I am getting much better about that though.
Well today as I was reorganizing the pantry, I pulled my roaster out and fixed that knob. Woohoo! I can now easily set the temperature and use it as intended. Tomorrow I will be cooking up another huge batch of beans, so we'll see if the glue holds up or not. I told my dh the worst that could happen would be it bursting into flames during use. I will be very attentive tomorrow, lol.
Yesterday I made not only one hat for the homeless, but two. So my count has increased to 23. I bought a huge box and my goal is to have it full. I am about 1/3 of the way there. I hope each hat blesses the person who recieves it. And I wish I could do a whole lot more.
