We bought the new propane grill. The box was too big to fit in the car. It will be delivered and assembled on Wednesday.

This is it:

Master Chef® E500 Propane BBQ | Canadian Tire

If it asks for a postal code, type in: H9G 1W7

We got a propane tank and cover. We are considering getting the motorized rotisserie kit for ~$50. I wonder if it is worth it. When I was a dad we had rotisserie chicken on the charcoal grill almost every Sunday during the summer. My dad built the rotisserie. I think he even made the motor. He was a mechanical engineer and had been a machinist.

Making vanilla ice cream, a gallon of it, LOL.

I love homemade vanilla ice cream. I'm using my old fashioned ice cream maker with salt and ice, it isn't too old fashioned though, it has a motor! It's a bit loud and annoying though.

Nice one
What is the left hand side? Like a warming oven? I'm assuming the right is a regular burner...

IMO, if all you are going to use the rotisserie for is chicken, you don't need it. You can accomplish the same thing with the chicken standing up (as in beer can chicken).
You eat lamb though, don't you? It might be nice for doing a leg of lamb on.

Sounds like you found some great buys. Don't ya just love those poofs..
Too bad they don't make me magically disappear. Defect-- return the manufacturer pronto!
First thing I saw when I walked in...the old Goodwill never had new things like this one does. I like the poofs to exfoliate, I get ingrown hair on my legs because of the compression socks I wear for work. At 50 cents each, I got a few of them.

Shrek was the one who wanted to go...he was fine while he was looking for what he wanted at Staples, too...but worn out and hurting as soon as I started looking around. We hit Hastings and I gave him a cart to push around and took off to wander the store, they've moved everything around. Bought one or 8 books...

my ice cream maker makes a gallon, and if I'm going to the trouble of making ice cream, I might as well make a bunch!

we have people coming over tomorrow, they'll get to eat wedding cake prototype and ice cream!

The one on the left is an infrared burner. There is no burner on the right. I think the knob on the right is for the rotisserie burner. That's one of the reasons I was thinking of getting the rotisserie. I won't likely be doing a leg of lamb and I was thinking that the beer can chicken (they actually sell a thing for that) would probably be adequate.

Harrumph, he moans and groans when he's had enough. Himself moans and groans when I tell him we have to go somewhere to shop. At least you get Shrek out of the house!

Last night we had mum over for dinner, it was a wonderful night with great food, great wine and great company

Today, a relaxing day in, watched a couple of movies, went out for a fish and chips lunch and for dinner we had a Red Chicken Curry with basmati rice and some crusty italian bread

Relaxing now, soon to be heading in to watch some Kitchen Nightmares
