Today I’m thankful for iron skillets.
The older lady I volunteer with asked me to clear her kitchen cupboards. I discovered she had five iron skillets in all different sizes. I have one skillet and one soup pan. I told her as much.
She retorted, quite reasonably, that iron skillets are about the single best thing to have in your kitchen. You can fry anything edible in them. They can safely be put in the oven to make pie or corn bread. Mmmm, pie. With proper care and seasoning they will last practically forever. She had four boys. I imagine she always had multiple pans going, both literally and figuratively.Embed from Getty Images
