The Original Teflon-A Cast Iron Skillet

I found this not long ago at the Goodwill for less than $5. My own cast iron pan I'd been using for YEARS went under the sink with the other seldom used pieces, since this one was much nicer than mine. It's a Griswold,too.

It stormed last night, the house shook and buckets of rain came down. Of course I left the rug out on the deck rails...for a few months now!!oops!! But I reallllly meant to bring it in yesterday...and forgot. So this is what I saw at 7:32am this morning when I let the puppies out. The sun nearly blinded me and I wasn't sure I was really seeing this...maybe my eyes were just blurry :D But sure enough, steam was swirling off this fact, I went back in to get my camera to take pictures of it. I had to wait for the fog to dry off my camera lens then,lol...but while I took the pictures I noticed the big droplets of steam all around me. And I MIGHT have even heard it sizzling....yep. It's hot here in South Mississippi this year.

Look what I found in a mosaiced watering can on my front porch...a birds' nest! You know what this means...snakes! They love tasty baby birds.

I love iron skillets, but have a hrd time lifting the darn things--so heavy, especially when it's full and hot! So, I display mine, but my DBF uses them. Loved your story about the waffles, they sure look good! Have a great week.

I loved my cast iron for years. Recently bought "as seen on tv" fry pans that are lighter and so far so good. I'm still using my cast iron dutch oven (from my great grandmother!) and my cast iron griddle tho!
And if the review I've read of these new pans, (after I bought them,) are true, I may be dragging my cast iron fry pan back out.

What a fantastic find. I collect griswold when I can find them at a good price.

LOL....and I don't need any more. You should see how many cast iron skillets, griddles and muffin pans that we have.

Its for sure WAY hot here in Ms.
