I used to have a pair of oven mitts and potholders in the kitchen until one mitt and potholder reported to the RV for duty. I've been making do with the one glove/potholder system, but it's been affecting my relationship with the oven. Was this to blame for baking less cookies? Or broiling less cheese?
After I found some of Grandma's cute quilted gingham fabric, I knew I had to make myself a new pair of oven mitts and potholders. They remind me of Dorothy's dress in Wizard of Oz, which I didn't see until high school, but luckily did, thanks to my friend, Toto & family, who took pity on my sheltered cinematic life.
