An Easter Story

Easter. A joyous day of celebration.
I’d been working for two days on the cooking, so we would have just the right meal. I made the cake yesterday, baked the potatoes this afternoon so I could scoop them out and make baked stuffed potatoes and then fixed the ham to bake in the oven. I went back to check the ham and realized that the oven was getting cold. Strange that. I tried to turn on a burner and nothing. I tried to manually light a burner, again nothing. I hollered to Hubby, who was outside, to go check the propane tank.
Worst of all, he could smell propane near the tank, and so we’re not sure if there is a leak or not. So, we called our propane provider. Guess what? They’ve gone out of business. So we called the people who “purchased” their customers. A company based in Canada! No kidding.
We’re now waiting for a gas man to get here to service the tank. Is he also bringing propane? No. Okay, so what’s wrong with this picture? No propane, means no cooking or using my clothes dryer.
I got out an old, and I mean very old hot plate. I cooked the asparagus and hollandaise sauce on that. I tried to carefully warm the ham in the microwave, but lets face it, the microwave just sucks out all the moisture and the ham came out terribly. What a disappointment!
So that’s my Easter Story.
No guts, no glory, no gas!

  1. Hi Mom,
    I’m sorry to hear that your Easter was such a disaster! Hope you are all set now with fuel! And maybe you guys can enjoy a nice lunch or dinner today? Hope Jack’s knee is continuing to feel better. Oh, I may not be on so much this week…I have a business trip in TX. I’ll give you a buzz!
    Lots of Love,
    PS: Greta looks wonderful with the grooming you have done. 🙂
