what you need: cast iron grill pan

Admittedly, I have had the above Lodge Cast Iron Single Burner Grill/Griddle sitting at my desk for well over a year. Here's the deal: It's a hefty piece of kitchen equipment. And to be honest, the thought of lugging it home has just been a bit too daunting a task over the past...year. Oh well. It's coming home with me tonight.

But the rest of you should most definitely pick up one of these for yourselves. Especially those of you living in a city with a small kitchen and no outdoor space for a grill (can you imagine?!). While I can't promise you that smokey char that comes from, well, charcoal, I can promise you gorgeous grill marks and the next best thing to the real deal (hey, there's always liquid smoke). The single burner design is even more genius although they also offer a two burner version for those of you feeding a larger crowd.

For under $40, and available here through Amazon, I'm thinking this is the ultimate mid-week pick-me-up. And a totally useful one at that. What will you be grilling?

Ok so I can't say I'll be grilling anything this weekend - my fiance and I are in Boston for a wedding. This is the first of two consecutive East Coast weddings for us (and a great opportunity to take notes!). The food at the wedding was really quite exceptional, and included a field greens salad with chevre, grilled peaches and blackberries. So simple, and oh so delicious! What will you christen your grill pan with?
