>In October 2009 we lost Mike’s uncle, Mark, to a sudden heart attack. Since he had no children and his mom (grandma Mary) is too old to be doing heavy lifting, the job of cleaning out his house fell on Mike, myself, my mother-in-law and brother-in-law. There were MANY things that we threw directly into the dumpster but some were useful so we each took what we could use. We found a cast iron fry pan and it nearly went into the trash but my mother-in-law swears by it so I thought I would try it out.
Well, it has been sitting in a box with multiple strings of Christmas lights since I brought it home. So while putting away the Christmas items I decided to pull the pan out and wash it up. However since i’ve never used cast iron before I don’t know what to do with it or if I’ll even like it. So I thought I’d see if anyone else uses it and if it is worth the weight of it? I need to decide soon as I am in ‘get rid of it’ mode!
