Move Over, Pioneer Woman...

...because I can cook, too!

Lunch time has always been one of the most difficult meals for me. I get home around 12:15-12:30 p.m. and am starving by then--considering the fact that I eat breakfast at 6:30 a.m. So when I want to eat, I want to eat. As many of my friends and family members know, I've been eating turkey sandwiches for lunch for the past 12 years or so and am officially tired of them now. (Gasp!) I recently discovered an old friend of mine:
The Snackster

The Snackster and I go way back to grade school. (Don't worry--this isn't the original Snackster. I've had to replace it since then.) I was home from school one day because I was sick and spent most of the day watching an informercial on The Snackmaster. My mom came home from work that evening and I told her all about this product and how you can make pancakes, egg McMuffins, mini-pizzas, and tuna pockets. Her response was, "But you don't even like egg McMuffins or tuna!" So obviously I didn't have her sold on the product at that point. Luckily for me, a generic version of the Snackmaster came out in the stores a few months later, and she let me buy it.

The Snackster even came with me to my college dorm room, where I made many mini-pizzas. In fact, when I came back during Christmas break for Rush (to join a sorority), the cafeterias were closed for a whole week. I remember taking orders from girls down the hall and making a bunch of pizzas so we didn't have to call a taxi and go out to eat.
So, I know I'm no Pioneer Woman, but I sure can cook up a mean mini-pizza!

Lunch is ready! (Eat your heart out, Pioneer Woman.)

You are a hoot! I love your Snackster, and actually, I would really like one myself. Remember the mean mini-pizzas we would whip up in that thing?

It reminds me of a pudgey pie maker!

Shocking! The blog is updated! :-)

That thing looks super cool and like the perfect answer for lunch around here too.

Sounds like you might be able to get Holly one for Christmas :) It looks like a yummy lunch if you ask me!

I have one, too! I think I've used mine once, but maybe now you've given me the inspiration I need to pull mine out again! :)

The Snackster, huh? Neeeever heard of it. Looks like the old iron presses we used to use in the campfires with the girl scouts! I guess that was pre-snackster of course. Does this mean that a panini press is in your future?
