You might be surprised…

then again, if you have one, you probably won’t be.

I have rediscovered it after it sat in my garage for a few months…

well, I didn’t rediscover it.

SuperMan did.

Last Sunday. When he was looking for the cord for my deep fryer to fry some chicken. Which we never found. I took it as a sign that we were not supposed to deep-fry the chicken.

SuperMan was not to be deterred, however, and decided to use this “new” appliance to fry the chicken.

He said it was only fitting since it is what my grandma used to use to fry chicken on Sundays when we had our family dinners.

I could not disagree. If it was good enough for her, it was certainly good enough for us.

And thus, the new appliance made its way into my kitchen and into my heart.

What an awesome little worker it is!

Tuesday night, I used it to make fajitas (pictured below) and it was awesome! Bigger than most of my skillets and hot as can be. I loved being able to set it to “warm” and wait for SuperMan to come home to eat with us.

Look at it.

In all it’s Harvest Gold glory.

Isn’t it beautiful?

It makes me remember my grandma when I cook – I imagined her standing over me smiling as I cooked the fajitas… chuckling to herself that I had just now figured out how cool this little cooker was.

Don’t worry, Grandma. It’ll get lots of use now.  I promise.

Now I just have to find some more recipes to cook in it.  I’m in love.
