I just finished my last workout for the week. I made it through the whole week and I am feeling pretty good about that. I know I am working as hard as I can and I look forward to seeing results in the coming weeks. After today's session we had a talk about food and eating and such. Nothing too "diet-y" just, you know, try to eat 5 times a day, small meals, protein at every meal. Some suggested meals were discussed and they all sound pretty do-able. When I got home I was hungry all right. Hmmmm what to eat. How about a cup of coffee and a slice of last nights pizza?
*sigh* goal for the weekend: buy better food.
On a slightly different but related topic. I think that of all the kitchen gadgets I have, and there are many, my George Foreman Grill is the most used and most useful. Seriously, I just heated up a slice of pizza in it because it was already sitting on the counter. I thought it would just make a huge mess but it worked really well. Everything got really crunchy and the cheese was melty but not messy. Very nice I must say.
I have other kitchen gadgets that work quite well but I just don't bother to use them much. There's not much that a knife and a cutting board can't do in the time I find, dig out, and set up my gadgets.
I have an apple peeler that works pretty well if I need a lot of apples done at once, it also comes with a corer/slicer, I haven't used it in years.
My favourite is the ROTATO! Peels potatoes like nothing else. Again, I only use it if I need to do a bunch but I find it very useful and somewhat entertaining. In fact, the last time I agreed to do the mashed potatoes for a potluck dinner I just brought the Rotato and a bag of spuds and entertained all the guests with my wizardly peel-y machine. People were lining up to try it out and I hardly had to do anything.
I also have a Rocket Chef. It's basically a hand cranked food processor. It's not a bad gadget but I rarely use it, too many bits and pieces. I do love the chrome dome styling of the thing and kept it out in my old place (bigger kitchen) just because I thought it looked really cool.
That's about it for my gadgets.
Have you got a favourite kitchen toy?
