Portable indoor grills

After some research, I’ve finally settled upon purchasing this grill.


It’s the Breville BGR820XL Smart Grill, Electric Countertop Grill. Breville makes amazing products, and the reviews for the above grill were impressive. There were quite a few people that were still using the grill and they’ve had it for several years. It’s a bit pricey; however, I don’t mind paying the extra money since I know the product will last. I do enjoy grilling; however, I don’t always have the time to grill outdoors and everything that has been going on in our lives over the past seven months. I’ll admit that I have not done any grilling. It’s high time I change that, even if I cheat and grill indoors.

I’m now the primary caregiver for my father, and since he’s in my home, I know that whatever he consumes will be healthy. Therefore, I’ve eliminated all the fried foods from his daily intake and carbonated sugary drinks with no nutritional benefits. Fried is now ‘air-fried,’ and carbonated drinks are fruit juices, smoothies, herbal teas, and more water. He has no complaints about missing his carbonated sodas; however, at times he has been resistant to abandoning fried foods. But since his illness was tied to what he was consuming, I’m not budging on that. I want him around for a long time.

Garlicky ramen and lentils

The good news is that even though he might grumble now and again, he loves the foods I prepare for him.

Vegetable ried brown rice

It’s delicious, healthy, and nutritious.

That’s one lovely looking grill! I don’t think we have space in our small kitchen for much else though.

I’m getting on with age too, 70 this year and I’m not doing as well as a year or two ago. I seem to find a change in my appetite – I find most things not tasty and I don’t feel like eating. I guess it’s me…not the food or the one cooking. I guess you need to understand that in caring for your dad – not easy taking care of old folks.

My late mum was bedridden for some 13-14years and we had to take care of her – thankfully, it was not too bad when it came to eating…but her medications were a mile long. After taking all those, she would not want to eat anything else!

I’ve been thinking of a few new kitchen items, too! I haven’t quite decided yet.
