2 words: Pancake Puffs.
Have you seen it? The cast iron, non-stick pan on TV that cooks your pancake batter in these little balls? You can fill them up with pudding and jelly? You can even make pizza puffs if you want? Ring any bells?
Ever since discovering that Mia’s Aqua Globes actually work (it even waters finicky exotic plants!), we’ve all been paying close attention to infomercials. I’ve got my eye on that pan, and Caleb’s dying to try out the Peticure (No more painful clippers!) Also on my list of things I shouldn’t be living without are: The Bra Baby (So I don’t have to hand-freaking-wash my bras), The Buxton Leather Organizer (It comes with a digital recorder to keep you from losing your mind), and, of course, Mighty Putty. (Just because I’m pretty sure I need that.)
And although the rest of us are stuck on those cheesy ads, Mia’s moved onto bigger and better things, like "Everyday Italian". Mia caught one episode of that, and ever since then, she’s been practicing her cooking skills–sometimes in her own plastic kitchen, but mostly on my bathroom counter, where she can wash her hands like a good chef should. (Plus she can see herself in the mirror and pretend she’s on camera.) She walks her audience through every recipe. It. Is. Hilarious. I can’t even type this without snorting laughter. So today, partly to humor my little aspiring Giada, and partly because it sounded so good, we’re going to actually make Grapefruit Zabaglione with Mixed Berries. No, we really are. It seems easy enough. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Maybe our next project will involve pancake puffs.
