Re: George Foreman Grill?

By the way, looks like these guys have a lot of the pf changs recipes...if you're looking for any others

http://www.razzledazzlerecipes.com/c...ipes/index.htm

There are also some excellent books "Top Secret Restaurant Recipes" that knock off all sorts of highly regarded restaurant fare. Once I got the recipes for the two sauces served at Benihana I no longer needed to pay $25-35 a pop to eat there...

We had orange bell peppers stuffed with a moroccan inspired mixture of couscous, tomatoes, onions, garlic, raisins, cranberries (ok, not moroccan), figs, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, diced preserved lemon, paprika and smoked anaheim pepper chili powder. Maybe one or two other things I forgot.

We had one left over too...

Gabe thoroughly enjoyed the stuffing with a side of whole cream yogurt...

Re: George Foreman Grill?

I'm thinkin' I need more than a George Foreman grill to keep up with the meals you all are talkin' about!!!

Not a single person mentioned hot dogs and macaroni and cheese. Along with chocolate, you have most of the major food groups.

Add the poultry & tomato sauce food groups and you've just described most of the meals in our house.

My idea of great cooking is one hour in the kitchen that produces a meal plus at least two more meals of leftovers. Someday I'll tweak my own version of once-a-month cooking.

When we want to eat like TH, we eat out... and, of course, we bring home the leftovers!

Re: George Foreman Grill?

Nords - I am right there with you! With both of us working, there is no way there's something "new" for dinner every night. I always cook big batches of food, and we eat leftovers at least 2-3 nights per week. I have a friend who says her husband won't eat leftovers. I say, he'd be one hungry guy!

Leftovers usually taste better than the first time anyway.

Re: George Foreman Grill?

Leftovers are a way of life for the LBYMer, especially in the accumulation/w***ing part of life...

Chili, spaghetti, roast, meatloaf, tuna surprise, and various skillet/ casserole/ stew/ stir-fry conglomerations. Quick, easy, cheap!!

We try that, but the wife makes funny faces when she eats the food and says I'm going to have to make it better at home the next day to make up for it. Not much of a time or money saver that.

Hey, you fell into that trap, you have to get yourself out of it!

Our kid has learned not to criticize the cooking either... but she learned how to make several good recipes as a result of the experience.

Re: George Foreman Grill?

I've wondered about the GF grill but resisted buying one for fear it was just another on of those "Ronco" products that would end up in the trash or out for a yardsale. Guess I'll have to give one a try.

Re: George Foreman Grill?

My dad has one, but always says he loves it but hates to clean it. My dad is about 47 times more neat and clean than I am, but then again he doesnt have three dogs, three cats and a baby to clean up after; so I figure if its too much trouble for him, its DEFINITELY too much trouble for me.

The tin foil clamshell trick sounds like it might solve the problem though...

The Kohls deal looks to be dead, but keep an eye on fatwallet.com, theres almost always a GF grill deal kicking around.

Main thing I like abou it is that I eat way more vegetables with one. A lot of men living alone don't eat many veggies- this makes them so appealing, at least to me, that I get my quota.
