My kitchen has been in upheaval for two weeks now... I had a leaky faucet and then my garbage disposal *fell off*. Has maintenance been here to fix it? Heck no. Meanwhile, I can't wash a dish, because the dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal.
How have I been coping? Paper plates and a new waffle iron. But not just any waffle iron... the Black and Decker G48TD Grill and Waffle Baker. This thing has saved my butt, mostly because of the inter-changeable plates that let you do waffles *or* panini press sandwiches. The non-stick plates mean I don't have to wash a pan, just wipe down when cool.
I just have to remember to check which way the plates are flipped *before* I heat it up. Flipping them with oven mitts on is NOT recommended.
