I think your comments are very interesting. I appreciate the feedback, however I disagree immensely.
The refrigerator failing happened on a Friday night, and first available delivery for a new one was on Tuesday. Once we figured out that it was broken, we immediately (that same night) brought over a spare mini fridge for their use. Meanwhile there were many times where we offered to bring additional ice in an ice chest for them throughout the weekend with no response.
The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking utensils, pots, pans, plates, baking pan, mixing bowls, measuring spoons, cups and even basics like flour, sugar, cooking oil, salt, and pepper. If cooking was such a big deal during the stay, you could have easily asked if we had other supplies that you could borrow. Ty and I would have happily brought it over.
I honestly don't know what else you expect to be in that kitchen for it to be used for cooking since there is a fully functioning stove and oven. Perhaps if you were thinking about making an 18 lb turkey it would not have everything you need...
