One of my favorite Christmas gifts (they are from my mother-in-law)
Well it's a very wintry last day of "Christmas Vacation" here, although we are not getting pounded with snow like my friends up north.
It's been quite snowy - we've had to plow twice in the last week and today is going to be the third time. (Anyone this winter with a commercial snow plow and/or 24 hour towing is making out pretty well.)
I've come down with a cold, so I've been dragging a bit the last few days, but I'm quite certain I'll pull through. We did take the tree down yesterday, but we still have the rest of the house to "un-decorate", but that shouldn't be as big of a job. This coming week should be fairly quiet, so I can finish that up myself. I also got some new pieces for my Christmas village, so I'll be re-doing that this week too, and I'll share pics.
So, one of the other gifts I got for Christmas is a cast iron skillet - which I have wanted for ages.
I *know* there's a real trick to seasoning it and using it, and I've been looking on the internet and I have found lots of *different* advice on seasoning it, and use and care. It's already "pre-seasoned", but I know that I still need to season it some myself... I'd be more prone to listen to advice about how to use this from "real" people - so if any of you have any advice for me before I try it out, I am all ears!
