Tip of the Day – One More Idea for Dear Old Dad

Posted on June 12, 2008 by Allie


I just thought of this one last night while cooking dinner. 

If your dad knows his way around a pancake, likes to mess around in the kitchen from time to time, or fry up eggs at the camp ground, how about getting him a cast iron pan?

We talked about cast iron a little while ago, and last night while making dinner, I had another “Man, I love this pan” moment.  I think a cast iron pan would make a great gift.  And there’s something nice about giving a gift that will have such a long life and can be enjoyed for years to come.

Add a box of organic pancake mix, or a bamboo cooking utensil set, and wrap it up in a dish towel.

  3. I have an old cast iron pan I inherited from my dad. He got it from the recycling center he managed until he died. He always called it, “the dump”. He was king of the re-users. And I love the pan, great suggestion Allie!

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
