Adina also made this lovely pillow for us! I laughed when I read the inscription, "Violin Outfits: Consisting of violin, bow, box, and teacher, sent to any part of the United States on 1 to 3 days' trial before buying." Thanks, Adina. I love it!
Maggie took the above panorama picture on Christmas morning to show me this feature on my new camera. I look forward to trying this.
Recently we were learning about the line of Griswold cast iron and how that line is superior to all other lines of cast iron. We were told the Griswold is much smoother...more like a non-stick pan. I started looking on eBay to find a cheap Griswold skillet to see if this is true...but I ended up buying a good deal at our local antiques store.
It didn't take a rocket scientist to see the difference in quality! The dealer told me that the recent kitchen fire in our county happened when someone was frying chicken in their Lodge cast iron. The hot oil split the skillet in two causing an immediate fire. Since most of my everyday cast iron is made by Lodge...it got my attention...especially since I recently experienced two large cracks in two Lodge pans!
I brought my new Griswold (no longer manufactured) home and re-seasoned it, then stirfried some baby carrots in it for dinner. Delicious! Definitely a keeper. My only sadness is that Griswold rarely made any large cast iron skillets...and my everyday skillets are 13, 15 and 17 inches.
