We moved into our new house about 5 weeks ago. We closed on it back in May and had to fix it up a lot, it was a foreclosure and needed LOTS of work. It is beautiful now though. However the house only had a hook up for an electric stove and I just don't like cooking on electric, so we decided to wait to get the gas line put in (my bro is doing it for free so its taking forever LOL it should be done this week!!)

While we have had no stove we have been cooking all meals in an electric skillet, the microwave and BBQ. I have learned you can BBQ almost everything!!! We have even made breakfast on the BBQ. Also you can microwave a whole lot too and it turns out pretty good. We haven't changed much about what and how we eat, just made the cooking methods we had available work for us!!

I will be VERY glad to have my stove back though. I love to bake and there is no way to bake cookies on the BBQ...LOL.

At least we were lacking a stove during the summer, easier then having to dig out your BBQ in the dead of winter!!

Congrats on the house!

Last summer my stove died and while I waited to find one on craigslist I made cakes in the microwave and cookies in the electric skillet. It's almost fun having that challenge (but after five weeks with a house full of kids I am sure the fun has long since warn off )

Gas scares me...never used it though so that is prob why. Glad your new hookups should be done soon. I understand having to be resourceful that was me last year when our kitchen was being redone (still not finished ugh)...

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
