My birthday is just around the corner. My boyfriend being the wonderful man that he is always spoils me. This year was no exception. I got an early present the other day and it's safe to say it's one of the best birthday presents ever. I'd like to introduce you to my new cast iron skillet. I love her. No, I don't just love her, I would sleep with her under my pillow if I could.
This is my first time cooking with cast iron and Holy Hannah! I got her last week, I looked at her with love in my eyes for one whole day before I decided it was time to break her in. I've used her everyday since. The best bacon in the world, check. The best eggs in the world, check, check, Pan seared salmon, oh yes, that's a triple a check. I'm not kidding, cooking with cast iron is amazing.
I'm not sure why, perhaps it's because she's new, but cooking with this skillet is so much fun. It feels very rustic and tough and everything tastes better. I'm not sure what the rest of my birthday holds, but if this cast iron skillet was the last present I were to ever receive, that would be just fine by me.
