Toasty Sandwiches.

For those of you who went to college with me - Do you remember making a sandwich and then toasting it in one of the waffle irons in the cafeteria?? Lol! Those sandwiches were the BEST. Oh, how I loved those sandwiches - the melted cheese, the warm lunch meat, squished just right between two pieces of toasty bread. Ha ha. But the problem was, that putting the sandwiches into the waffle makers would ruin the coating on the waffle irons. (I have no idea how, but somehow it did) So then those who actually used the waffle irons to make waffles, would end up with waffles that would stick to the iron. You would have to scrape off the your waffle in pieces. It always ruined the waffles. But you know what? We wanted our sandwiches toasty from the waffle iron! So we kept on doing it. After a while, a sign appeared in front of all the waffle irons, telling us that we could no longer use the waffle irons to toast our sandwiches. The sign deterred us very little. We continued making our toasty sandwiches in the waffle iron. Then they put a cafeteria lady to stand guard over the waffle irons, to make sure we didn't use the waffle irons for our sandwiches. But when she wasn't looking, sometimes we would sneak them into the iron anyway. Eventually the cafeteria got some kind of toaster conveyor belt thing for our sandwiches. It helped for a while, but it didn't squish the sandwich the right way - back to the waffle irons. Ha ha! Those poor cafeteria people! We must have drove them nuts! Eventually they set aside a waffle maker designated for sandwiches. Now why in the world didn't they think of that in the first place? Good memories.

I was thinking about those lovely sandwiches last night, and kind of wished I could eat one of those again. But there was no way I was going to ruin my waffle iron to make a toasty sandwich! But then the thought occured to me - why not just use the George Foreman grill? So you know what? Today I made a toasty sandwich again - just like the kind of my college days - but with George Foreman grill. The cheese was melty, the lunch meat was warm, all squished between two slices of warm toasty bread. It was good. And I highly recommed it. Why didn't I think of this sooner?? So for those of you who would like to relive those silly college memories of those lovely sandwiches (or those who would like to try something new), I encourage you to try making one of those sandwiches on the George Foreman Grill! It's still good!!

And one more thing - since I'm on the subject, I think I want one of those new George Foreman Grills! They look so cool and you can make so many things on them. I have no idea why I'm sharing this with you. I just am.
