On the way home from work Tuesday I found an enormous 15 inch cast iron skillet out on the curb. I carried it about a mile home, stripped and reseasoned it with olive oil.
Today I used it to cook a pork loin (seared on the stove, then 400°F for 35 min) with little potatoes, Brussels sprouts, onion and garlic, a little fennel, salt and pepper, and a homemade BBQ sauce a friend gave me earlier this year.
Also, last week we found approximately one hundred bars of chocolate.
I have not been cooking that much, because we have been finding forty or fifty boxes of day old sushi every time we go dumsptering lately, as well.
