Itâ€™s chilly out there this morning, but yesterday evening, it was warm enough for one last round of â€œHOSE!â€ on the deck. I think this mightâ€™ve been our last hurrah.
Weâ€™ve gotten more use out of our newborn bathtub as a toy than as an actual tub!
While Henry was splashing, I was grilling. Like I said, gotta squeeze out every drop of those summer-ish activities while we still can.
Grilled zucchini, anyone?
We recently bought the coolest appliance â€“ this Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler. We actually bought it for tailgating (we hook it up to a battery with an inverter) but have used it at home nearly every day. And itâ€™s replaced a bunch of other pans and appliances, leaving us with more cabinet and counter space.
So, the 5-in-1 part refers to the fact that itâ€™s a panini press..
A George Foreman-style grillâ€¦
You can open it up and lay it flat; then itâ€™s a contact grill that holds about 8 burgers..
You can also flip the plates over (they are dishwasher safe) and it becomes a griddle for pancakes or French toastâ€¦
The 5th option is half griddle-half grill.
Cool, huh? We seriously love it. I Craigslisted our George Foreman, which took up so much space compared to this thing. And itâ€™s more versatile.
Grilled veggies â€“ inside or outside, no matter what the weather!
What appliance is your favorite? I canâ€™t choose! Coffeemaker probably wins by default though. 🙂
