A Wishlist

July 10, 2010

There are a lot of things in life that I look forward to. One is getting married (I would like to apologize in advance to whoever my poor future husband is… and my father will want to know: check or cash?). Bridal registries excite me. I think it’s the idea of being able to go into a store and create a giant list of silly things that I’d love to have but never buy for myself.

Exhibit A:


Or maybe I’d put this on my list:

Because everyone needs the latest headlines printed on their toilet paper.

I know I’d have to ask for this.

Snack-curity system!

I have a sneaky feeling that my husband would totally try to steal all my tofu.

But I think number one on my list would have to be this little gem.

Of course, I would also take the opportunity of having a registry to ask for things I actually would put to good use in my house. The whole list wouldn’t be a joke, just the majority of it. πŸ˜‰

Because if there’s one thing I actually would want and use on a regular basis, it’s this beauty.

That’s a legit panini press. I’d ask for this because I would be able to make what I had for breakfast today, but it would be approximately 239480394x better.

The Best Breakfast Sandwich You’ll Ever Have

2 slices of cinnamon raisin bread (I like Ezekiel brand)

1 banana

2 tablespoons peanut butter

1 t maple syrup

Simply spread some PB on your bread (I used both cinnamon raisin bread and peanut butter in keeping with the theme of deliciousness) and put some banana slices on top of it. Make sure they stick! Top the slices with a little bit of maple syrup, and then slap that sucker onto a panini press… or in my case, an ancient sandwich maker.

Just a side note: make sure you grease/spray that bad boy.

Let your sammich cook for about five minutes, until the banana inside has warmed through and melted, and your bread is nice and toasty. The end result should be THIS epic beast on your plate:

I can’t believe how tasty this was. It was a good change from the usual cereal. I had a lot of fun composing my mental registry list while I ate.

The last thing on my list would be..

Pretend the above steak is actually poor, innocent husband’s booty.

Only not really.


Future husband, whoever you are… you have been warned.

    You are so stinking funny!! I want that fridge locker!!! Fortunately, FH will not be stealing my tofu – in fact, I may have to sneak it into some o fhis meals in order for him to get used to it πŸ™‚

    That sandwich looks sooooo good. Unfortunately we did not register for a panini press (am I stupid?) – I will have to go get one!!!

    :O My handy-dandy George Foreman is AWESOME for making paninis! I’ve made that exact same sammich, sans maple syrup. That’s the last time I’ll ever be able to say that, I’m sure πŸ˜‰

    I know your search for who will obviously have to be the perfect man will be successful – any woman with a panini press and meat branding thingy won’t stay single for long – no matter how likely it is they’ll get branded themselves!

    I loved everything in this post! I totally need a snack-curity system. AND a wafflesicle thing! I’m pretty sure we eat all the same food… pb&b on cinn raisin ezekiel bread is one of my favorite things everrr!

  6. I just laughed my butt off at the Rsstroom Reader! Now my husband wants one- haha!

  8. kaztronomic Says:

    Hah, I dig the Wafflesicle maker. xD

    That sandwich looks phe-omnomnom-enal. πŸ˜€ (Sorry, weak attempt at humor. >.> )

  9. Hahaha! What a great post. I agree PB & banana sandwiches NEED to be grilled. I haven’t had one on that legendary cinnamon raisin bread though. It looks so good.

  10. Faith Says:

    Bahaha! I can’t believe they actually make some of these things!

  11. Monique@She's Going The Distance Says:


    Seriously though, I’m mentally thinking of all the sweet appliances I want for when my big day comes. If it ever does πŸ™‚ haha. Wafflesickles sound crazy though.

  12. lol too cute! I hope your future husband one day reads this – just so he knows what he really got himself into. That nutcracker = hysterical. Is this how you spend your time? Looking up ridiculous gifts for your registry!? …we could be best friends

  14. Run Sarah Says:

    That wafflesicle maker is amazing! I have yet to tried the grilled PB&B sandwich combo but I ought to – I haven’t had a grilled cheese in ages and I think this may be a great vegan replacement!

  16. Ann Claire Says:

  19. I have never wanted anything more than that Wafflesicle machine. SO great!

  20. […] few weeks ago, when I discovered a rather ghetto panini press in my kitchen,Β this happened. I became obsessed with making warm, crisp sandwiches with gooey, comforting insides like […]

  21. This post is so funny! Glad I came across your blog! I am shocked that they really make some of those items, but I must say that the Hillary Nutcracker is brilliant! Oh, and the wafflesicle must be mine, too someday!!
