Saturday, December 24, 2005 :::
My roomie K-Mack and I exchanged xmas gifts early this morning, and apparently it was the year of the nearly-useless and wholly-unnecessary kitchen appliance, since she bought me a Quesadilla maker and I bought her an Egg McMuffin maker.
So tonight, as I watched A Christmas Story for the brazillianth time, I decided to test out my gift to her and make myself an Egg McMuffin for xmas eve dinner. Let me tell you what, the results were spectacular. And since I had nothing better to do, I documented my xmas eve miracle:
Seriously, this might be one of the best inventions, evar. It's a fairly sophisticated device, cooking the egg while toasting the muffin to a nice crispy brown. It even has a "meat warmer", but I didn't have any pre-cooked bacon to test out that functionality. We have no kitchen counter space for this device, but whatever... it's here to stay. Next up is a test run of the Quesadilla maker, as soon as I can get to the store to score some tortillas.

Dan, may all you egg muffins turn out perfect and your quesadillas not smell like tacos! Next year a Belgian waffle maker?

I saw one of those at Walmart, and was considering getting one of those for my sister, but decided to pass, thinking it was too good to be true...but now that you have told of its awesomeness, maybe I will have to go and get one anyways...learn something new (and useless every day... Merry Christmas

Dan, Dan, Dan,
Will you marry me???
I was sinking way into my usual Christmas depression - already through a whole bottle of wine. But I decided to check out your blog for a post, and as usual, you came through for me.
A long time ago, someone forwarded your bad yearbook pics post to me, and I've been a loyal reader ever since - even through that whole motorcycle debacle.
You never fail to make me laugh, and when I am depressed, I can always read your blog for a pick me up.
Forgive me if I've gotten sappy, and also forgive me for any typos -I am really drunk, but not nearly depressed as I would be if I hadn't checked out your site tonight!
Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas, Dan

Oh, Gina's drunken comment totally brought tears to my eyes. Merry Christmas Dan and K-Mack!

Gaah! What happened to Dan's teeth? Did K-mack not *really* like this egg-a-muffin maker, after all? ; )

Wow, Dan! You obviously come from money (K-mack as well)...fancy gifts galore, eating at fine establishments, women swooning at your blogs.. you could be a rock star!

I too saw the egg McMuffin maker. I begged my parents for one. What did I get? A Black and Decker Gizmo Handheld Mixer. What Jewish parents. Oh they also got me a new computer, but what I REALLY wnted, they didn't get. Pfft, they didn't even get me right color convertible. It's PEARL white, mom, not OFF white!
My parents hate me.

dude i saw that on slavetotarget.com...if there's one thing i love, it's an egg mcmuffin. i don't know where i'd put it in my tiny kitchen, but...hmmm.

I finally broke down and bought the quesadilla maker myself. Two other of my appliances needed replacing, so I figured what the hell.
I love the quesadilla maker. Makes the quesadilla love so much happier.

i want one of those bitches!

My belgian waffle "gift to the family" maker didn't get quite the reception I was hoping for. Maybe I should have gone with the McMuffin Maker.
By Colleen, at 11:26 AM
Okay, I suddenly want one of those McMuffin makers! I watched the video on that darn web site and it looks so easy!
But I dig that section where they talk about how easy it is to clean the thing... but make no mention of how to get all the crumbs out of the thing. You can't tell me all that toasting won't result in crumb buildup....

Now I really wish I was your friend so we could eat egg mcmuffins hand weave bookmarks all day long. You are so the coolest person.
By elizabeth, at 12:04 PM
i always forget how hot k-mack is. mcmuffin indeed!
By hubs, at 3:03 PM
Quesadilla maker??? It's called a frying pan and a spatula, biznitches. Now, the McMuffin maker is pretty cool.
By , at 4:01 PM
Oh wow. I would've been mad if I got either one of those appliances, but I see you two know each other very well. Prehaps you can alter the thing to make one of those disgusting Mc Griddles. I say go get frozen pancakes and get to work.

We have each other, so really, there is nothing else we need. And a quesadilla maker is really cool!
By Kristina, at 6:58 PM
I would have been mad too. Contraptions like this are stupid and unecessary, like Kleenex. You should see their kitchen, it's full-up with As Seen On TV items they use for a week and then never throw away. I find a toaster, oven, toaster-oven, mcmuffin maker, quesadilla maker, sandwich maker, george forman grill, coffee maker, and an espresso machine just a tad over the top.
Does Kroggy know all you need is each other K-mack? Kind of a weird comment.

Have another clock Brent.
By Kristina, at 12:26 PM
I like clocks because they have interesting designs and numbers on them. If spread them all out on one counter in my kitchen it would be weird, but I don't...so there.
