Our Dinner Tonight:
NY Steak. Corn on the Cob. Potatoes, Mushrooms, & Green Beans in the Skillet. French Bread with Butter. Oh, and A&W Root Beer.
After dinner, we went on a walk and came home to homemade peach crisp with vanilla bean ice cream. Now the girls are tucked in bed and we *may* watch "Food, Inc." I checked it out at the library (have you seen it?).
We cooked the vegetable dish in a cast iron skillet ($22.95-$64.95) made by Lodge Cast Iron Cookware. It's a pre-seasoned, heavy-duty pan that is great for use on the stove-top, on the grill, or over an open fire. We've only used it at home so far, but I imagine it will come along with us on many camping adventures in the coming years. Hey - it may even go on camping adventures with our kids and THEIR kids someday. I've heard that cast iron lasts forever...
All in all, this is an excellent Father's Day gift pick for any dad who enjoys cooking - indoors or out.
