Out of the Blue

The other day I mentioned I was facing the temptation to head out into the wilds of the backyard and fire up the man-stove to satisfy my prehistoric need for scorched meat. In an effort to show me the error of my ways, a wave of arctic air has invaded our area, along with much of the country, and it is shockingly cold out there, at least for those of us not used to the kind of climate one finds in Siberia or Minnesota. This has definitely cooled my enthusiasm, so to speak... I wonder what sort of outcome I could get with one of those electric George Foreman dealies. Yeah, probably not.

Crappy, dry, undercooked meat is about all you get out of that. Unless it's chicken, it does do reasonably well with chicken.

Creston

Sausage and the like is also reasonable on them and they make a good panini (the only reason we keep ours around at all) - I don't do chicken on mine very often as there are about a million better ways to cook chicken indoors than trying to grill it. there are some decent models from & modeled after Cuisinarts that can serve as a passable griddle as well; the foreman's are a waste of money.

i thought you initially leaving off at electric was a joke about blowing your circuit or something... oh well.
