Toaster Oven

#1

Post by BostonCharlie » Thu May 16, 2019 7:01 pm

We have always had a traditional toaster, so a toaster oven always seemed unnecessary. And on the rare occasion somebody really wanted to toast something like a store-bought coffee cake we could pop it in the full sized oven.

I just enjoyed some sourdough toast from our new toaster oven. It was so good, I feel immense regret over all the sourdough toast I've made in an upright toaster. Apparently there was always something better concealed within those humble slices that only a toaster oven can discover.

On the deal side, we learned that our Kroger deli has a discount cheese bin. They have odd bits marked down the same way 'day-old' baked goods are. This is perfect for me, because I know nothing about cheese, but I know I like a deal. Anyhow, my sourdough toast had some of this Camembert cheese on it. It was good but powerful. I had to cut it with some slices of cantaloupe we happened to have -- bite of toast, bite of melon. Man that was good.

I came for the watch deals, but I stay for the toaster talk. :D Maybe I've been missing out too. I've had a toaster oven sitting in a box in my basement for probably two years. I paid nearly nothing for it so I couldn't resist the purchase (imagine that). I haven't busted it out yet because my kitchen is already too crowded but maybe I need to reconsider and reconfigure.

OK, this is creepy. I also have a toaster oven in my basement. It has been an unused wedding present for a really long time (12 years).

I have a feeling that we are kindred spirits some how.

Off Topic,

When we got a crock pot for our wedding I joked with my wife about how we'd never use it.
LOVE that thing. Use it as much as possible. She's been making fun of me for that initial stance since.

Can't live without my toaster oven for reheating pizza. I'd feel guilty using my full-sized oven for that.

In fact, have to have a microwave for reheating pizza, too. It's a two-stage process :D

The Crock Pot Mrs.Mot and I got for our wedding is one of the only gifts we still have. :lol:
