Sunday I cooked the kids a frozen pizza and breadsticks in the new oven! Luckily I had read about issues with bad plasticky smells the first time a new oven is turned on, so I ran both ovens for about 40 minutes earlier in the day to burn off whatever creates that terrible odor. The house reeked! At least it was a nice day and I could open some windows. I used Pizza mode in the convection oven, and aside from taking 2 minutes longer that the box stated, it turned out wonderfully, nice and crispy on the bottom and melty on top. I chalked up the extra time to 1) I put foil on the rack under the pizza rack to catch any drips and 2) I had to open the oven 3 minutes in to add the breadsticks.

Finally, today was chilly and rainy; I looked out the window and saw this little guy, seemingly unaware that it was autumn....so pretty I had to take a picture!
