A Girls Best Friend


Oh no, never wash it!
Use it as often as you want
In fact, the more you use it
The better it performs
It is a perfect fit
When you hold it in your hand
It gets too hot to touch
When the temperature rises
After each use
Clean it with some oil
Keep it handy for quick use
If a prowler intrudes
Take a wide swing
And knock him on the head!
It's a girl's best friend
The cast iron frying pan!

Jeanie said...

Nothing like a good multi-use utensil.....and there's nothing like how clever you are with words. Brian's pretty good, too.

Enchanted Oak said...

I don't even know where I got my frying pans, they've been with me so long.
I'm such a pushover, I saw the picture and thought you were talking about a rope!

DJan said...

Of course everyone was taken by surprise until they saw the cast-iron frying pan! You are quite the poet!

I have a set of these that I treasure. You are so right about just oiling them keeps them in good shape.

So true. All the teflon and stainless steel in the world will never measure up to a well seasoned, cast-iron skillet!

I actually had a patient once who conked her husband on the head with a cast iron pan. I'm not sure how she didn't kill him.

otin said...

My mother is a firm believer in the power of the cast iron frying pan!!

gayle said...

Still have the one my husband got from his mom when we first got married. I wonder how old it is?

Unknown Mami said...

My nana would on occasion sleep with a cast iron pan and salt next to her. She said she would blind intruders with the salt and then hit them over the head with a frying pan.

Yousei Hime said...

I LOVE my cast iron skillets. I got rid of my teflon stuff and won't buy anymore. Haven't used them to clunk any heads, but my boys are making me reconsider that.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your comments, so insightful and fun. Hope you're staying warm. Temps dropped for us today. Brrrr.

Nezzy said...

In the words of old Granny Clampett,

Cheryl said...

This was great, brought a big smile! The photo was priceless as well! Have a wonderful week.

Akannie said...

LOL..am reminded of the scene in Chocolat where Lena Olin hits her husband on the head with the frying pan when he's trying to kill Juliet Binochet and she looks at him laying there unconscious, looks at the pan and says "Who says I don't know how to use a skillet?" And they both go into hysterics.

Hey you--I've got an award for you over at EB...
