"GRILLIN', GRIDDLIN' and GRINNIN'!!

I'm so excited and am sure that many of my foodie buddies out there hear me when I say that I'm so excited about the new Cuisinart Griddler-4 that I got yesterday. It's either a late Mother's Day present (altho Geraldo got it for me ) or (most likely) an early Birthday gift; either way I am tickled to death! I have had this particular appliance on my short list since early last fall and I guess I finally came up with the appropriate appeal to the court. Let's say putting on a few "got a little too comfortable" pounds over the winter and looking for a healthier and "leaner" way to cook, along with the fact that it's just the 2 of us most of the time now and dinner time tends to be less planned and more impromtu. Also, not having to turn the kitchen stove on in the heat of summer, or trying to build a big enough fire in the charcoal grill for a couple of steaks while trying not too waste charcoal and cooking time can be a challenge. Now I'm not going crazy here...no way I'm giving up the my old "Black Beast" of a grill, I'm just happy to have an alternative, not too mention a Grill, a Griddle and a Panini Press. I have been burning up the internet for Panini recipes, but I've come to the conclusion that fresh "anything with a great cheese melted on it atop a fabulous atisan bread" is pretty much up to one's own creativity and preference. I am so glad I planted oodles and oodles of basil, eggplant, squash, and tomatoes and that my herb garden has never been better. It's inspiring...really. I see alot of pesto in my future.
So tonight I will grill my first, "little Summpin', Summpin" and I feel fairly confident that chicken, basil and fresh mozzarella will be involved. I'm not forgetting my leaner and healthier argument...I can always half the bread. I really am gonna try to be better about cooking healthier, (sigh) but, I look forward to trying out new things on my Griddler and sharing the highs and lows with those of you who may be interested. So... so far I give THE GRIDDLER-4 ***** (5 stars).... let's hope the love affair continues!!!!
