Growing up, I was responsible for a whole bunch of household chores – the only one that I didn’t mind was ironing. I could spend hours spraying starch on my dad’s shirts, pressing cloth napkins and tablecloths…as an adult, I hated doing it. I blame it all on this guy:
When we lived in Astoria, there was only room for a tabletop board. And once we moved to Los Angeles, I never bought one to replace it. So Abe and I walk around all wrinkly.
I finally bit the bullet and invested $20 in a standup version from Target. It ain’t fancy, but it’s so much better than kneeling on the floor!
I spent over an hour going through our wardrobes, while clearing out the DVR. Bliss.

While the iron was out, I started thinking about how people make grilled cheese sandwiches with them. I’d always been curious about this process, but feared it’d get too messy. Since I was going to get rid of the old board anyway, I thought, “Hey – let’s give it a shot!”

Despite being hideous and mushy…
…I kinda dug this.
