A reader asked about maintaining her cast iron and I was responding and told her Chad is the expert and I’ll ask him about her issue and let her know but I wanted to share this picture.
This is a small part of their vintage cast iron. Chad loves the vintage cast iron and is always looking for hard to find pieces. I cook with it, I use it. I have no idea what brands or what numbers I have. Chad will call me so excited that someone in Kansas City has found him this or that piece of cast iron.
For those who weren’t reading my blog when Chad was in high school, you’ll just have to guess how much it means to me for him to be doing things like this instead of the things I was afraid he might be doing at this age! He was never in trouble . . well, he didn’t go to jail or anything but I’m betting several high school teachers and the principal still remember him.
They use all their cast iron and he keeps it in pristine condition. He was excited a while back when he was able to trade something he had collected – I think it was an antique hand plane, which he also collects and uses in making furniture, for some kind of Dutch Oven lid he had been looking for. He cracks me up sometimes. I would never ever have dreamed he’d be like he is today . . and I am very, very thankful.
Look on his bookshelf – he has a wheat grinder and he uses that too.
He isn’t perfect but he’s a good guy, a good dad and a good husband and . . a good son, and I’m proud of him.
