Been back together for exactly 2 months. The kids and i flew in to Dominica on June 26th
Soooo.. In Dominica the bread is ridiculously bad. It's dry and flavorless. Which means all of us student spouses get to make bread if we want our families to have yummy sandwiches. I came up with a recipe that I love and I started to bake and sell it to other students and families. It's called my Sweet Wheat Oat Top Bread. Well, tonight I made a few loaves, turned the oven's gas on and lit it inside, then went in the other room to do something else while I waited for it to preheat.
**side note: There aren't gas companies here like there are in the US. If you want to cook you have to fill your propane tank and hook it up to your oven. Sometimes when a shipment hasn't come in for a while we will have propane shortages. It really stinks when your tank runs out in the middle of baking bread. THE WORST. bleh.**
Well, when I came back in to put the bread in I opened the oven and it wasn't hot. Noooooooo! The propane ran out! Ug. It was too late at night to go use someone else's oven. I thought MAYBE I could kind of coax a little propane out if I shook the tank a little. I turned on and off the gas knob again (BTW there aren't temperature settings on the oven. just numbers 1-4 and you have to guess about where 350° would be) and then got a match to tryyyy and light the stove.
I guess the flame I lit in the oven to preheat it had somehow gone out- maybe when I shut the oven door. The gas had been working all along and just filling up the oven. When I opened it- and left it open while I jiggled the gas tank- the cloud of gas was slowly enveloping me. Then like a dope, I lit my fate. Well, Darwin, you haven't gotten me yet. I'm still alive and kickin.
Wasn't that a frigging awesome post? yeah? I think you should comment and say something about how much you enjoyed it. Dont you? at 7:40 AM
