As Seen on TV

by Pa Rock

You've seen it...we've all seen it! The info-mercial where the frumpy, red-headed lady leads the goofball man around by the nose as she keeps whipping up marvelously quick dishes in what looks like a waffle iron with two scooped out compartments. She uses leftovers, cake mixes, steak and asparagus - whatever - and quickly turns every pile of scraps into a gourmet delight. And us, her salivating viewers, can order not one, but two of these wonder machines for just forty dollars! They come with a few plastic gadgets and a very small recipe book. And the best part is the machines fold up so nicely and take up almost no counter space!

Well, our Consumer Division here at Pa Rock's Ramble is pleased to let you know that we have found the same marvelous little machine at Wal-Greens for just $9.95. It is called an omelet maker. It doesn't come with the plastic doo-dads or recipe book, but it is so simple that even I can use it. Tonight I made salmon patties in just a few minutes, and, as our friend on TV says, there was virtually no clean-up. Later I may try my hand at small strawberry cakes. And the best part is that it folds up so nicely and takes up almost no counter space!

Move over, Martha Stewart. Pa Rock is in the kitchen!
