Do you remember the original Sandwich Press that came out in the 80’s?
It may have looked like this:
Okay. So now that you remember it, did you ever have one? I wanted one SO BAD when I was growing up. But obviuosly my parents had NO VISION, and chose to spend their hard earned cash on other, less necessary things like bills, food, insurance, blah, blah, blah! (parents just don’t understand!)
The other night, Paul and I were having dinner at Luke’s place (Paul’s best friend). Luke lives in a great condo in Belltown (a part of downtown Seattle for those of you that don’t live around these parts).
I was searching through the kitchen drawers for a spatula or something, when I came upon the most beautiful sight: An original Corningware Sandwich Maker from the 1980’s. When I asked him how he liked it, he said “uh, I’ve never used that.” I asked “WHAT?!” in shock and horror that this precious relic was sitting there gathering dust.
He then said, “yeah, you can have that.” So, I packed it up, took it home, cleaned it off, and what you are about to witness is my first set of fabulous sandwiches in my new favorite kitchen gadget.
