Contentment - Part 2

We have had a busy day.  This morning, Mama finally defrosted the freezer.  It needed it.  Then, she took us to McDonald's for lunch. We had McNuggets and fries!  Yum!  We sat outside for a while and then we came in to watch The Butler.  Scout and I fell asleep and that is how we get to our contentment pictures.

BOL!  See my foot doing a photobomb.
After the movie, Mama and I took a nice long walk without Scout. Scout used her "senior card" and stayed laying on her back on the couch.  Yep, it has been a good day.

What Is Happening In Our Kitchen This Week

Mama sometimes mentions what new gizmo she has bought or the new recipes she has tried, so maybe I will try to include that once a week.  I don't know.  Our blog pretty much flies by the seat of its' pants as they say.  We will give it a try and see what happens.

Mama uses an electric skillet daily.  She seems to have to replace them about twice a year.  The non-stick stops working and they start not to heat evenly.  She decided to try a different type of skillet this time since she doesn't think she should have to replace them so often. She is hoping that this one lasts longer.

The is the Presto Foldaway skillet. Why is it different?  Well the cooking area is made of ceramic.  It is non-stick.  It is heavier than the other skillets she has bought and seems to be made well.  The main selling point of this skillet is that it comes apart for storage.  Mama didn't care about that though. She liked the ceramic cooking surface.

Just the base.

The base stored inside the skillet.

The entire skillet
Mama really likes the way the skillet heats and so far nothing is sticking.  The skillet has a pour spout that can be used to hold a spoon with the lid still on.  Mama isn't really thrilled with having to take the base off to wash the skillet, but it isn't hard to do.

She purchased it at Target.

The next thing that has Mama excited is that she finally found egg rings at a reasonable price...$3.99 for two.  She kept seeing them for $15 and she said she was not paying that much.  She found them at Bed, Bath and Beyond, if you are interested.

Why does she want a round fried egg?
This is the reason.  She likes to make sausage, egg and cheese muffin sandwiches and she was aggravated with her eggs not being round.  Yes, she really has very few problems.  BOL!

Hi Friends! Yes, I know it has been a long time since I updated all of you.  Mom heard someone say that no one really cares when a blogger...
