Double Duty

Reasonably priced  table ware is now so durable that I no longer maintain a set of utility bowls for food prep. Deciding to use noodle and rice bowls for the mise en place emptied several square feet of cupboard.

Wheezing slightly at the check-out counter many years ago, I invested in first-rate French enameled cast iron cooking pots that look good enough to set on the table. That too emptied storage space.

A cleverly designed grill basket fabricated with square holes drains pasta, rinses fruit, and carries grapes to the table.

It is far from elegant to set a cast iron skillet on the table, but down-home cornbread belongs in the pan that cooked it. Pre-heat the skillet and melt some butter in it before scraping in the batter.  -30-
