Cast iron cookware, once considered too heavy and awkward. Perfectly good skillets and Dutch oven discarded in favor of lighter aluminum cookware, with non-stick coatings.
When properly seasoned, cast iron was also non-stick–without the chemical coating compounds. In our household, cast iron is back in favor. Last night’s cast iron skillet-baked pork chops with roasted vegetables were to die for.
On another front, I’m taking back what was taken away last summer, by warring media giants, Direct TV and Nexstar Media. Local CBS and NBC channels were removed from the lineup. NBC is still not back.
I’m installing an outside antenna for local channels. A small gimmicky inside antenna, failed to perform to my expectations last week, and was returned. I missed NBC’s first shows of the new season.
The new antenna, looks like those on houses before the advent of satellite and pay TV. Hopefully, local channels will be in reach, once again. I’ll have the option to pull the plug from TV subscription services.
I’m waiting for the weather to cool next week before installation. Everything comes back in fashion in due time.
