I headed out around noon this afternoon to purchase a replacement handle for my bathroom faucet. I came home with a new grill. Yup, it was that kind of day. Truth be told, I had been checking out grills online earlier in the morning. After deciding it was a purchase that would have to wait I got myself together and headed to Home Depot in search of that needed handle.
As I pulled up I noticed the
grills- all standing at attention in the bright sun. Walking by I slowed
a bit to do a little daydreaming and there it was- the scratch and dent grill. Originally priced at $199 it was reduced to a mere $99. Was it too
good to be true?
A fabulous employee by the name
of RJ helped me take a closer look. There was a small dent in the hood, a
missing knob and a broken grill plate. The dent was no big deal and the
knob and grill plate were easy fixes. Within 15 minutes that silver
cooking machine was in my car and on its way to a new home.
This first day of spring was
perfect grilling weather so tonight I got out the tongs and threw a steak on my
new purchase. It cooked to medium rare perfection and made for one pretty
picture on my plate smothered in onions and mushrooms with a serving of spinach
on the side.
