This is our stove. One of my goals for this year is to become a better cook and to cook at home and not just “reheat” or “thaw”!

So, we bought a reversible double grill/gridle, which is sure to change our lives! We grilled chicken tonight after letting the chicken sit in a DELICIOUS marinade I found on Kalyn’s Kitchen Blog. She highlights South Beach Diet-friendly recipes and everything I’ve tried to far has been great!

I also purchased a small metal collander for steaming veggies. I steamed some Trader Joe’s frozen organic asparagus and tossed some pepper, olive oil and lemon juice on it. Tasty! Dale had corn from a can.

Our stovetop, being fully utilized!
