Yesterday I bought a George Foreman GR144 144-Square-Inch Nonstick Family-Size Grill.
My previous George Foreman Grill was recently broken (by my own clumsiness) and I was EAGER to replace it.
Before I get to the new beauty, let me tell you about my original George Foreman Grill. It was THE original George Foreman Grill… as in the first in the entire impressive line. As in Born in 1994 and still working in 2011. It was a big boy, but I loved it ever so much. And it lasted forever and a week. In fact, it’d still be plugging along if I hadn’t dropped an iron skillet on it. Don’t ask. Suffice to say it gets crazy in my kitchen.
Yesterday, when the adorable store clerk asked if I wanted to pay $3 for a one year warranty, I swallowed a laugh and told her, “George Foreman grills don’t break.” I told her how long I’d had my original grill and her laugh escaped (I didn’t ask if she’d been alive that long, didn’t want to know). She also said she’d been thinking about getting her parents one for Christmas and I gave her the go ahead. You’re welcome, parents.
Naturally, I had to try it out the very day I bought it. Why do the words kid, new, and toy come to mind?
I made Bruschetta Chicken because it seemed like the thing to do. (Recipe in the next post.)
If you don’t have a George Foreman grill, I guarantee you this: You need to buy one asap. When it comes to making chicken, shrimp, burgers, fish, pork, steak, hot dogs, bacon, sausage, or even kabobs – George Foreman grills are simply excellent. They allow you to make magic in the kitchen, and feed your family healthier meals in the process.

I love pigs, I collect pigs and I completely get my jollies out of posing them with products I’m reviewing. I don’t know, maybe it’s a Kentucky thing.
