    Made quail poppers. Quails breasted out tossed in Rudy's poultry and cayenne. Stuffed jalapeños with jalapeño cream cheese and wrapped in pepper bacon.

    look up crockpot roasts. that's usually what we do. Start it in the morning and come dinner time, all you need to do is fix some biscuits and potatoes.

    THIS.

    The crock pot is a highly under-rated and under-appreciated piece of kitchen hardware.

    Set it up before work, it cooks while you're away. Come home, and let said roast rest while you whip up sides and bam...easy and silly good home-cooked dinner.

    I wash mine after each heavy use and do a fast re-season.

    First time, wash the thing hard and make sure its CLEAN.

    Then put it (empty) on your stove on the lowest heat for about 10 minutes...enough to warm it up and dry even the most minute of crooks & nannies.

    Preheat your oven to 200, 225, just whatever is really damn low for your box.

    I use shortening. Lard is good too. Don't use an oil if you can help it.

    Liberally coat the cooking surface, including the sides. At least once a year I do a scrub clean and do the WHOLE pan, it is easier to clean that way. Not so much as leaving chunks of white behind, but definitely coat it. Use regular paper towels to apply.

    Then turn it upside down and put it in your low heat oven. Stick a cookie sheet on the bottom rack under it just to catch any errant drippings.

    Leave it for like two hours.

    Then turn off and allow to cool.

    You now have a seasoned cast iron *cookingthing*. Works for skillets, pans, dutch ovens, whatever.

    You're quite welcome :)

    I will add this: My grandma rarely 'washed' hers. She did the salt-paper towel clean. That pan is slicker than owl shit.

    But I tried this and I just can't do it. I don't know if I'm just too anal, or what the case is. But I can't not wash the thing after it has food on it.

    The salt works to do a few things. First it cleans the pan, acts a scouring agent. Secondly it fills in the tiny pits in the metal making it slick and non-stick. It also helps the oil from turning, think of it as curing the pan. I like to rub a salt an oil mixture into the pan while it's still hot then put it back on the heat an cook it on then another rub after it is off and it's ready for next time.

    Lard if you got it, shortening if you don't, veg oil if you must, as a last resort
