Its been pretty quiet around here, Brad has been working on a project so I've been busying myself with cooking and cleaning mostly but as Robbie is now allowed to get back to walking I've taken him out a few times on some trails that run through this property and beyond. Trying to slowly work him back up to the looong walks Brad takes him on regularly.

Miss Stacey and I went to Giro yesterday (a re-cycle store) and I picked up another cast iron pan for $8 which I think is a great price since most of what I've seen in there for cast iron is $20+ and in the 'normal' store they are $50+. I brought it home and rejuvenated it as per. For anyone interested the process is below...
Scrub thoroughly with SOS or other to remove all rust (inside and out - including the handle) and obviously -- Rinse VERY well.
Put on high stove burner approx 3 min to remove all moisture
Take dog for a walk while pan cools completely

Thoroughly coat with oil of your choosing, I used Olive Oil.
Put pan upside down in 500F oven with tinfoil on lower rack to catch residual oil
for 1 hour. Be prepared for a smokey haze in your home.
Freshly seasoned cast iron.
Never clean with soap.. scrub with salt & baking soda if necessary.
Hand down to your children's children's children.
Here is a shocker for anyone who knows me.... I bought a nuker!
Mostly for reheating the tea I constantly forget to drink or such.
Microwaves are handy for reconstituting FD meals was really the biggest reason so there it is.
For the difference in price, I chose the one with the AirFry option
And I've made french fries a few times already.
It is a convection oven also which would be handy if I ever get to make a big family dinner again.
