so the sad little press sat in our basement for a couple months, and then recently m brought it upstairs where it's been sitting quietly and untouched, underneath the food processor. curiosity & hunger finally got the better of me and i decided to bust it out.
what ensued was a total treat of a toasty warm sandwich oozing with hummus, crisp empire apple slices, local micro greens and a bit of daiya. it was awesome and totally worth the trouble of cleaning up the press post panini fest.
moral of the story? it was a pretty good little thrift after all.
now if only i could figure out a way to make waffles in it....
