So, what's cooking out there? Anything special on the menu or in the oven?

Good idea, Daniel. My cast iron skillets are "on display" sitting on the stove! I'm constantly moving them around.

Daniel, my kids went through the developmental stage of writing on the walls with pens. Just one of those phases better forgotten than remembered. However, I discovered that some of the ink bled through the paint repairs and I finally resorted to using shellac; no more bleeding. Perhaps it will work for you.

Daniel, this is exciting! A beautiful cast iron storage cabinet! Looking forward to the next phase. Perhaps you might consider putting the cast iron in the cabinet for a portrait of your collection. I know, doors keep out dust, but I love seeing the cast iron.

Randy, the Silverthorn site looks exceptionally fine, as usual. There must have been some fine food served at the "Thanks, Patrons" dinner; sorry you had a cold and lacked sensitive taste buds. How did they get the head chefs of restaurants to participate? They must be happy customers. Well, of course!

Oh goody, goody. Thanks Daniel!

Silverthorn farm held a "thank you, patrons" dinner last night out on the prairie. The food came from the farm and was prepared by the head chef(s) of several Indianapolis restaurants, all catered. I have a bad cold, so I really couldn't taste it very well. Photos may be posted already, if not soon. (

Randy, my son-in-law, has trouble with wheat and gluten. We emptied our pantry of anything that might aggravate his rheumatoid arthritis, even if it is just a hint that it might be a problem. 

Laura and I are eating the same things as he and we both are losing weight, needed weight loss, by the way. 

We all love bread, all kinds of pasta, and anything made of flour. Larry read that sourdough destroys whatever it is that causes him problems, and we jumped on the chance the invalidated claim was valid. Larry made two loaves of sourdough, and we ate it in two days ... oh-oh here comes the weight back on!  The next day he made another two loaves. 

I have no tests to validate the claim nor do I have any clinical evidence.

I've been warned that flour is bad for me (us). Unfortunately, I love pies, biscuits, pancakes, etc. I'm hoping using flour "in moderation" will get me off the hook. Rationalization is so powerful!

Daniel, your blueberry pie looks wonderful! I am not surprised you find the old pastry blender resulted in a flakier crust. 

I was very small, I had to stand on a chair at the kitchen table at my grandmother's elbow making pie dough in my bowl beside her bowl as she blended the lard, flour, and salt with her fingers. She had a light touch and I mimicked her motion.

Bertold, thank you for the reminder of Dutch Baby Pancakes. I haven't had one in years and my mouth waters as I anticipate making them.
