Tonight I had to take some Pampered Chef boxes to a client, and pick up some swimming gear for Abby and then take her to swimming. This was all supposed to be happening during the "dinner prep" hour. Where I think about what I am going to make, check to make sure I had all the ingredients, and commence with dinner.
Instead, I was in the car.
I decided on Chicken Curry. But wasn't sure I had the toppings, and there is nothing I hate more than a 5:00 p.m. grocery store run. Because the store is ALWAYS packed. ALWAYS. And I ALWAYS just need one thing, and it drives me bonkers to drag 4 kids into the store, fight the crowds, and get back to have to cook dinner after it all. Going to the store is quite enough. No?
I avoided the store, and hoped for the best.
When I got home I discovered there was no Cashews, and no shredded coconut. Curry wasn't happening.
This is where my life has been transformed. Truly, truly transformed.
I have a Pampered Chef Grill Pan.
If you have been to a show in the last 5 or 6 months, you have probably seen it in action. It is amazing. And up until about a week ago, I had the Grill Pan, and used it religiously. To be fair, it has ALMOST been as amazing as the Deep Covered Baker. But, I was missing something. It's companion piece the GRILL PRESS. I finally got it, and my life has changed. Forever.
I store them sitting inside one another in my cupboard. When I got home, I turned on my stove, and put the pan with the grill press inside it on my stove top. I had a conversation with Jaxon's respite worker, and got out all the ingredients to my dinner. . . . and THEN, I got out three FROZEN chicken breasts out of the freezer, and when my pan and grill press had been on for about 6 minutes (I really wasn't counting) I threw the frozen chicken in there, put the press on top and walked away. I prepped my veggies, I boiled water, I got out a bottle of Thai Peanut Curry Sauce. Within 11 minutes, my frozen chicken was completely done. And looking beautiful, like I had just pulled them off the grill.
Please ignore the dirty stove top.
So, now, to my GIVEAWAY!
I know you are all HOPING it is the Grill Pan. But it isn't. It is the GRILL PRESS. Why? Because the grill pan ain't cheap ($135). HOWEVER, I DO want you to have it. And you can get it for $54.00 right now, because the special of the month for hosts is 60% off the GRILL PAN. And before you think, wow, even $54 is alot, I want you to think about all the "power tools" your hubby has bought for 5 times that amount that he has used a couple times. Now think of having THIS power tool in your kitchen. Enough said.
