Nothing for the first 20 minutes, at 250C to burn of the storage oils etc.  Which is always a smelly business with a new oven.

Then, when the potential 'taint'  had gone, I microwaved a mug of milk for a shameless full-fat coffee.

This was a test to see if the power had really been dropping in the old one.  Over the last few months the time taken to microwave porridge has sometimes needed an extra minute.

Back to the proper times now.  The milk would have boiled over if I hadn't been paying attention.  I've stuck a post-It on the cabinet to remind me for a while.

Today I'll will be checking out the convection settings with a batch of wholemeal cheese scones.

Having fun reading the manual to work out some of the fancy 'combination settings' I've never really bothered with before.  Good reading for a rainy day.

Also found a 'Parkin' recipe (a gingery biscuit/cake) which I want to try.  Mum's original 'Yorkshire Parkin' recipe has long since vanished, but we grew up on that stuff ;-)

Won't be that long before I find out if I can remember how to make a swiss roll.

Sounds like you got a new toy instead of a new appliance. I guess that is a win for you. This is a win for me.
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

All new things are a toy to start with ;-)

After ten years of gym shit, I thought I did all the things I was going to be able to do. Dumbbell split squats were new and different. Awkward at first. But I mastered by the end of the day. That's a win.

I'm winning and I don't even have to wrestle with any dumbbells.
If I had to live my life again, I'd make the same mistakes, only sooner.

This probably heralds a new flurry of activity then.

I discussed with the dog, and we decided it best for me to just win again.

Sounds like a well-reasoned decision to me.

I no longer have a dog to discuss this with. So I talked to my imaginary friends and they insisted that I should win.

Their imagination is fertile, but it lacks staying power.
