Inquiring minds wanted to know what I got for my lovely hubby in return for my fabulous four legged friend. Well, inquire no further. The answer is: a super fabulous jumbo sized electric griddle with a removable plate that can be popped in the dishwasher. You see, John is The Pancake King. Notice the capital letters because it is actually his title. He makes pancakes with chocolate chips, peanut butter, vanilla, banana, apples, honey, or anything else he can possibly find around the kitchen. And they’re magnificent.
So about a year ago when we were putting together our wedding registry, we found the most amazingly fabulous griddle, and registered for it on the spot. The heartbreaking part came after we received it as a wedding gift and only then realized that it didn’t fit into any of our tiny, 50 year old kitchen cabinets. Major bummer. So we begrudgingly exchanged it for a normal ol’ stove top griddle pan of a much more reasonable size. And I swear I saw a tear gleaming in John’s eye.
But now for the happy ending. With our new super-sized kitchen we have room for ten jumbo electric griddles. I settled for one and wrapped it up with a big red bow (just like someone else’s V-day present) and even taped some heart shaped pancake cut-outs on the front of the box. And this time John’s eyes were gleaming with excitement.
