I've been struggling to cook things for about 3 months due to it's maximum temperature being only 130 degrees C. And, whilst it would seem a good time of year to turn it off as it's summer, it's always a difficult decision because our landlord has not provided any other oven facility!
So, it went out last night because the temperature had actually dipped to 90 degrees because the wick is so sooted up and all it's good for is meringues! Because it's such an ancient, converted aga, even when it's serviced I'll be lucky if it hits 200 degrees.
Anyway I shall have to make do with this camping ring and my microwave.
Hence, no proper baking or cooking of pies for a while until I have it back on in Autumn, if I can hold out that long. I will try and cram as much salady stuff in the fridge as possible in order to try and eat a bit more healthy over this time.
