Small Appliances


I can post, but I can't comment. I commented on one blog, but after that my priviledges were suddenly revoked!

I recently bought a Baby George Foreman Rotisserie. I know you are thinking, "Does she think this is a new thing?" I know I don't get out much, but I am not that isolated. I bought mine from my favorite consignment store, Four Doors Down. Ten bucks. It looks new, like it was only used once them cleaned with a magic eraser. That made me suspicious. Maybe it doesn't even work.
There is a return policy and it was only $10.

I had a couple of pre-packaged filets wrapped in bacon. My new rotisserie was lacking a manual. I looked it up on line and cooked my steak. I am impressed! It was tasty and the only problem was the bacon unrolling and sticking out. It was over done. My fault for not securing it better.

Yesterday I did a chicken. It was better that the ones I buy at the grocery. I shoved an apple up the butt of my chicken before I tied it up. I have an abundance of apples and I figured it couldn't hurt, might help. It was so good and moist. My only problem today is trying to find something to rotisserie! It is a dreary day. Soup or chili sounds good and I don't know that the rotisserie will be called into action.

So, on to my trusty crockpot. The crock pot has been busy all week with apples. Apple butter and applesauce. So easy and the house smells like cinnamon. But, how much applesause and applebutter can two people eat? Still, I am thinking about making more today and freezing it. I don't know why. I have been giving apples away as fast as I can and I will be making apple pies this weekend. Apple muffins, apple bread, apple fritters, baked apples ........... I am open to any apple ideas.

I imagine my yard chickens are tensing up as I read this. Will your apple butter keep until next camping season? Could you serve it in your store on some tasty baked goods, and have jars available for sale?

Funny you should mention the George Foreman. I have also been on the lookout for one that past month. A few years ago a friend of mine gave me hers and I never used it and ended up getting rid of it. Wish I had kept it..

The man in my life does NOT like to bbq, even though we shopped for a long time to find just the small one he wanted for the RV.
So I use my George Foreman grill all the time for steaks, bacon, etc. It's not only good, but has saved me a lot of angst trying to get him to grill...
