I have trouble sleeping. Despite their claims my new memory foam adjustable bed has not cured me but it has made me more comfortable while I toss and turn. Anyway, I am up and down all night, sometimes watching tv, even the infomercials. I succumbed
to Kathy and John and "Ready, Set, Cook" the amazing grilling machine. It is a sandwich maker, egg cooker, cake baker, pannini maker, steak griller, you name it. Has a central one well base pan, a split pan section and a mini cupcake type insert. I felt
so stupid when the box arrived. What seemed like such a good idea at 3 a.m. was now taunting me from the box......."Sucker"! I unpacked it, read the recipe book and I have begun to cook. In two days, I have made a really good rib eye steak, darned decent
"over easy" egg, pastrami and swiss on rye grilled sandwich, garlic toast, grilled zucchini. I look forward to making the crab meat stuffed mushrooms and the turkey meatballs.
The grands are coming for the weekend and we plan to make sausage in a pancake (like pigs in a blanket), hot dogs, mini pizzas and probably several other things they will pick from the recipe booklet. I actually like it, it does not heat up my kitchen, it
cleans up with just a wipe, and it helps in portion control, and most foods are prepared just using a spray of Pam, no other oil. Less calories and fat. Who knew there could be an upside to Insomnia.
