There is a bit of a funny story to Reg and I purchasing a George Forman grill and roaster oven a few years ago, for our caravan kitchen.
We told both our daughters that we were going shopping with the intention of buying one or the other.
We were advised by one daughters, that we could just use non stick foil and cook on our existing frypan and save out money. OK, well meant advice, but we wanted to buy one or the other, not seek a low cost alternative.
Our second daughter, equally caring in her nature, advised us to go to the Warehouse and purchase a no name product to do a similar job as the more common grill. At that stage, the oven was a new concept and there were no low cost versions we liked.
Somehow, Reg and I felt a little rebellious, at being in our 60's and often being advised by thirty something’s as to how to manage our money so after a quick check of the one daughter spoke of and the warehouse the other mentioned we headed to the department store and joined the SKI Club. We became official members of the Spending the Kids Inheritance Club and in buying both, went over our budget and we have never regretted ether purchase, nor the fun we had, laughing at our 'rebellion at being told how to spend our money, by our own 'kids'. :-). .
Tonight’s chicken dinner was a free range, organic local chicken, and it was divine, cooked without any salt or seasoning, just onions and potatoes cooked in the pot with it and all the fat drains out into the dish beneath the roaster, making it low fat cooking. Delicious! :-).
PS. We LOVE our children :-) and understand they meant only to have given us good advice, :-).
