The Hood

The hood above my stove fell off today! Not kidding! Pushed the button on the hood to start the fan and BOOM! The right side just fell. A complete mess. So I tried to fix it, the "pennyless" way of course, by first trying to nail it back up; nope that didn't work. Then, you'll be really proud of me for this invention; I took the longest wooden spoon I could find and my biggest bowl, turned the bowl upside down and the spoon on top of the bowl to prop up the hood. Voila! It's working! I don't know how long this is going to last I think.
So I leave the kitchen because it is giving me a complete panic attack, mainly due to the fact that we are having guests over tonight for this big dinner that I have been joyfully anticipating (using the second pound of the ground turkey, I might add-see post below).
I go to the bedroom and start to make my bed, Martha Stewart style, and then from the kitchen I hear CRASH! Yep, you guessed it, the entire hood has now fallen off. This is awesome.
I'll keep you posted on this current "Pennyless Cook" adventure.
