Things She’ll Miss: The Griddle

The days are numbering down.  Only a day and our nest will be empty.  Move out day for our youngest kiddo, Kalissa, is August 13th.  So far, I am fine with it and haven’t did a big “empty nest melt down”.  I think I am so busy with the new house that it’s easy to be distracted.  She is ready to go and has felt that way all of last year-so, it’s just time for her to start the next chapter of her life.

As the day becomes closer and closer she’ll say, you know “I’m really going to miss Ruby”…”I’m going to miss free laundry”….but today it was the griddle. “Mom, I’m really going to miss the griddle,” was what she said today.


Kalissa cooks everything on the griddle. I truly mean everything.

Buying that griddle is one of my best thrift store buys EVER!  Around here, people use these as lefse making griddles..Kalissa uses it for everything except lefse.  I told about the griddle earlier in this post.


If you have tried regular griddles and have been disappointed, like I was, this is the griddle to get.  I looked on Amazon and they have them listed as Bethany Housewares 730 Heritage Grill.  If I could choose my most used kitchen appliance besides Hubby’s coffee maker, I would easily say this is the most used appliance in my kitchen.

Today she made chicken breast.  They were delicious.

Now if you ask me what I’ll miss when she’s gone…I’d have to say her cooking.  It’s such a treat to have someone else cook once in a while.

  1. Making me hungry just looking at that chicken. It can be hard to let the chicks fly away but sounds like the two of you are both ready for it.

  2. You’re right-it really is nice to have someone else do the cooking! I’m so glad you have the new house to distract you from your empty nest. Plus your other kids and quilting! Your last blog about the architect would not post and listed as page not found.

  3. Just keep busy and you won’t find it difficult to get through. My two left the nest within two weeks of each other – that was hard. Had to really keep busy at work to get my mind off it. You have so much to look forward to, it won’t be the end of the world.

  4. I’m using the electric skillet DH’s grandmother gifted me 40+ years ago. It is living on borrowed time and now I know where to get a replacement.
    PS missed you on Sunday!
