My knee has been bothering me for weeks. I’m pretty sure I overexerted it during a tougher-than-expected boot camp-style workout class at my local gym. It was an hour of non-stop activity, with round after round of lunges and squats, high-knees running and stepping up onto things. The class itself was painful, obviously (it should be, right?), but it wasn’t until the next day that I realized how much I had overdone it. My knees berated me for weeks afterward the only way they know how, with popping, pain and inflammation. They eventually got the better of me, and I decided it was time to have the more painful of them looked at.

Did you know that living in the Portland area means you’re in the middle of one of the largest wine-producing regions in the US? This unique area is located virtually at the center of Washington State and Oregon, the 2nd and 3rd largest wine-producing regions in the US, respectively. What does this mean for you as a wine-lover?
My brother bought me a Breville BSG520XL Panini Duo 1500-Watt Nonstick Panini Press. It takes normal, boring, cold sandwiches and turns them into crispy, steaming hot ones. I love it. Moreover, I actually use it, which is more than I can say for that pasta roller and most of the other kitchen gadgets he’s gifted me over the years.
What could be easier? You plug it in, wait a few minutes for it to heat up, drop your sammy on, lower the lid, and just walk away. In minutes you’ve got a sizzling, toasty panini (or whatever) oozing cheese out of three sides and practically screaming “bite me.” Would you believe I’m halfway through just such a sandwich as I write this? (licks and wipes fingers) Well I am. And I am loving it.
Now go get yours.
