Na Na pinches her pennies

Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.

My new oven

I have been using my daughter’s hand me down rotisserie convection tabletop oven for the last 5 years. It was a few years old and missing the accessories when she gave it to me but worked fine for what I needed. It was a step up from the small four slice toaster oven I had used for several years before that. When she gave it to me I could finally bake a loaf of bread without using the kitchen stove oven.

For Christmas 2020 my daughter decided to buy me a brand new one. She thought maybe I’d like an air fryer oven but I said no. I just wanted an oven. What she bought was too small to bake a loaf of bread so she took it back and started looking for a new larger one. It took awhile but she bought this one for me.

Nice! Much bigger than the hand me down one. It just barely fits on the counter. Its another rotisserie convection oven. I’ve never had a tabletop oven this fancy before. I think some recipe update research is in my future. I know how to bake a chicken or a roast but rotisserie is different. Rotisserie sweet potatoes and eggplant sound good. I’ll have to give that a try. Lots of possibilities with my new kitchen toy but I think a homemade loaf of bread should be first. I will clean the old oven really nice and list it on freecycle.

Hugs to everyone,

      Love using mine too. It feels energy wasteful to turn on a big stove oven for small single person size pans. Do you use the rotisserie?

    That looks great! It was worthwhile the wait. And home-baked bread sounds ohhhh soooo delicious. Would love to see pics!

      I’ll be sure to post pictures. Before I became covid lazy I baked bread once a week. I’m ready for routines again.

    How wonderful Anita! And what a good daughter (aren’t they the best 😇).
    But I certainly wouldn’t call it a toy. The magic you work with what you have is so inspiring. I would call it a necessary appliance! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
    Have a Blessed Day!

      I have another project to do first and then I can get started cooking again. Yes, daughters are special but so are sons.
