Hello bloggers and anyone else that might read this post.
When I posted about my grain sacks, some of you wanted to see more of my stove.
So....here it is!
It's a Heartland stove that I found twenty years ago when we lived on our farm in southern Michigan. It's a reproduction of a wood burner. This one is electric. I wanted one with a grease reservoir, but it wouldn't fit my kitchen at the time. So I settled on this smaller one.
I worked, and saved for over three years to buy it.
The bottom drawer holds pan covers. The warmer above houses the light and exhaust fan. I keep spices in there.
When we moved north, our new place had a wonderful built in stove with a grill...however, I wanted my old black stove instead. Everyone thought I was nuts! I didn't care, I just couldn't part with my Heartland stove.
The oven cooks 100 degrees hotter than a normal oven...so I usually set it at 250, instead of 350.
The oven is quite small...but I always seem to make it work.
Over the years this old stove has aged, and lost it's lustre...but until it expires, it will have a place in my home.
It might not be the prettiest, or most modern appliance, but I absolutely love it!!Do you have something in your home that brings you joyful memories...like baking Christmas cookies, cooking a huge turkey dinner for holidays, making pies, birthday cakes, grilled cheese sandwiches, and homemade soups?
This old stove holds memories of "family" times for me...and now with grand kiddos, the new memories we make will include using my cherished old stove.
Enjoy your Wednesday.
