Hello Out There !
When our children were quite young we reached a point where everyone was on a different schedule. My husband was in the Navy and working a second job in addition to being part of the flight crew for hospital runs to Balboa Hospital at least once a week. Our oldest son was in the 6th grade, our daughter in 1st grade and our youngest was just starting kindergarten. No one left or returned home at the same time. No one ate at the same time. It was a bit of a nightmare ! If I took care of everyone's needs I would be in the kitchen all of the time and have time for little else. Luckily, a friend had given us a warming tray. If I put the food on the tray after preparing it the tray would keep the food warm without drying it out. Wonderful ! One big problem solved. Except...., it broke, :-( Now what was I going to do? It came to me on a Saturday after fixing pancakes for breakfast. Why not use the griddle? It should work just like the warming tray if I could just keep the temperature low enough. Now how was I going to keep the food moist? I removed it from the pan it was cooked in and made aluminum foil packets. It worked. It didn't take me long to realize that starting with foil lined pans (where possible) saved a lot of work and dishwashing. Years later my old griddle saved a dinner party for me when our guests were delayed.
So... now you have a new way to use your "weekend workhorse" (at least that is what it has been in my house.) Every Saturday morning is time for a big breakfast , even though our children are all grown and gone to their own homes. My old griddle is much too big for the two of us, so it only gets used when the kids and grandkids come to visit, but it still makes great pancakes, fries a lot of bacon all at one time, is great for fixing hashbrowns for a lot of people, cooks 8 slices of French toast all at once, and...well you know what I mean. If you have one, get it out, dust it off and fix another one of those wonderful BIG Saturday breakfasts again. Your family will love it. Mine does.
Until next time,
PS If you don't own a griddle or a warming tray, talk to Kitchen Fantasy (either in person or by email). I'll just bet he can help you find the one that is just right for your needs.
