Another of my favorite things

A couple of years ago I received a box in the mail. It was small, but strangely heavy. I saw that it was addressed from my grandparents and I was instantly excited and transported in time.


Growing up we always got boxes from my grandparents. The outside of each box would be so totally covered in tape that it was nearly impossible to get to the goods inside. After a few long, d.r.a.g.g.e.d out minutes of fighting a scotch-nightmare we held our breath and opened the box. Inside there would be treats, games, stuffed animals....pretty much the stuff of 5 year old dreams.


So, at 24 the same level of excitement filled me as I opened the heavy box in my hand. I carefully opened the top flaps of the box and saw a round wooden dowel.


Huh?


I reached in, grabbed the dowel and pulled it out.


Much to my surprise, this is what came with the handle:



My very own BACON PRESS!

I called them up and found out that my grandpa was the motivator behind this gift. I think they read here on this blog that I was complaining about my bacon curling up, and in response they found me this little gem!

Not only is it totally functional (I use it at least once a week), but how cute is the pig and the type? Adorable. I have this sitting in my kitchen window sill. This little item simultaneously manages to be: sentimental, functional, adorable, unique, and fattening. What more could I ask?
