This 2018, aside from going back to the gym, we are also trying to be mindful of what we eat. Since I’m the one planning, buying and cooking our meals, it’s relatively easy – well sort of! I just need the right tools and ingredients to whip up our healthy (and hopefully yummy) meals.
Most of those who know me are aware that I am an avid supporter a.k.a “suki” of mompreneurs – and I get very excited with good finds in online shops run by moms. Just recently, my Facebook feed has been flooded by photos and videos of this stove top grill and mommies grilling beef, sausages, BBQs, and being the inggitera that I am, I had to get myself this Perfect Kitchen Grill too!
So I messaged my mommy-friend, Sheila, and ordered one of this grill from her online store Shoppers In box. The grill costs only Php800, and shipping is even free! What a steal right?! So together with my pending order, I added this item by simply messaging her (she’s a very nice and accommodating seller) and a day after, I got this grill on my doorstep.
For tonight’s dinner, I was planning to make prawn and mango salad because Michael specifically requested for it. It was good timing that this grill arrived because I needed to cook the prawn. It was a very good excuse for the purchase – my husband did not even question the package and raise an eyebrow when I opened it. Haha!
The grill was made of sturdy material (not flimsy aluminum), and the heat was evenly distributed throughout the tray. I can feel the heat at the edge, even if the flame of my stove was only in the middle. The prawns were grilled perfectly – no burnt parts. Cleaning was perfectly easy too. Once the grill cooled down, I wiped the grill with paper towel before handwashing it with warm soapy water. I was done with the prawns and clean up in just 15 minutes. I think this grill will be my new favorite kitchen item!
I prepared the greens, mangoes, vinaigrette, tossed the salad with the prawns and garnished with walnuts and shaved pecorino cheese. Healthy dinner is served!
Happy weekend, people!
