We Got Oven!

Whoop! Its one small step for mankind, one giant leap for Helenkind! Yesterday finally I got to use our new oven! Huzzah! Its only been about three months since I last used one! And just what did I christen the new oven with you ask? Nothing groundbreaking I am afraid, just a fancy pizza that…
