Toaster Oven….how I love thee…

There’s some crap going on but, ya know what? I’m not going to give it any power by dwelling on it or naming it. I am going to write about my Toaster Oven.

So, a few years ago a friend moved and I took some furniture she was getting rid of and she threw in a toaster oven. And then… it sat pretty idle for a couple of years.  So, when we moved, there was finally space for it on the counter. At first, I didn’t really think about it. I’ve never had a toaster oven and really couldn’t see the advantage.

And then we discovered that the regular oven temperature is a tich bit wonky.  And it’s a hassle to have to heat up the whole oven to just warm something up or cook something small that can’t be microwaved. And so, I tried out the toaster oven.  I’m pretty sure that now I use it almost as much as (if not more than) the microwave.  (Mr. POSSLQ is the cook in this household… I just mainly warm stuff up.  Left to my own devices, I tend to just eat bagged salad and deli meat).

The toaster oven is also very handy for doing shrinky art projects (With the plastic sheets that, when you “bake” them, they shrink and harden up). Because it seems ridiculous to heat up a whole oven for a couple of minutes of “bake” time.

So, in summation. Toaster Oven = Winning! Not much more to say about that!
