COOKING MADE FUN..


Cast iron cookware has been used for hundreds of years.  Cast iron is well known for its even heat, its ability to be used on top of the stove as well as in the oven, and properly seasoned cast iron creates that wonderful  non-stick surface we love.  While in the early 1900's you would find cast iron cookware in every home,  with new technology and cooking surfaces improved, use of cast iron has decreased .... until recently,  The popularity of cast iron is again on the rise.  Griswold and Wagner Ware were especially popular although both of these companies folded in the late 1950's but the durability of this cookware lives on.  This is why cast iron is used in the very best of restaurants and is favored by the professionals. It keeps the food warm long enough for the chef to prepare the rest of your meal.  You are still able to find many great pieces in excellent condition.  The Wade Creek House has many different styles, sizes, and shapes ....  come in and discover the joy of cooking with cast iron yourself...

To season a new iron pot, wash with mild soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly, then coat the entire surface with oil or melted shortening, including outside and handles, and a lid if the pot has one. Once the entire surface is well-greased, place the pot in a 300° oven for about 30 minutes, with a baking sheet under it to catch any drips, then let it cool slightly; remove and wipe with paper towels. After each use, wash with mild soapy water and dry thoroughly, then add a little oil or melted fat to the pan and coat the inner surfaces completely.
 
If the pan ever begins to show signs of rusting or imparts a "metallic" taste, it will need to be re-seasoned. Scour the pan well with steel wool and wash with soapy water. Rinse, dry thoroughly, then coat with shortening or oil and place in a 250° oven for about 2 hours. Wipe with paper towels to absorb any excess oil, and it's ready to use. Never put iron pots in the dishwasher

If we're not supposed to have midnight snacks,
then why is there a light in the frig?

LADDERS ARE FUN, FUNCTIONAL, AND FUNKY....

Ladders are fun to use when displaying your favorite collection, functional when organizing your closet, and funky.......   A functional use for me is that the ladders are roosts for my chickens, which means that at night they perch on the rungs of the ladders to sleep.  I also have a ladder full of quilts.  Love them!  Here are some more ideas for you.  Of course... we have lots of ladders at The Wade Creek House.  Here are a few.


 
Check out these ideas..
 







 
 
 
Fun, functional, and funky!!
 
Funky... unconventional: offbeat, creative, and novel
That could be you!!

FARM FRESH EGGS


You know we love chickens and one of the benefits of having chickens is having eggs to eat.  If you have only eaten eggs from the store... you need to try some of ours..

 
T
This is the hens, Toots and Dottie's, favorite box. 
Apparently Toots is taking too much time laying her egg
and Dottie is encouraging her to hurry up......

 
 Dottie likes a bit of privacy...
looking to make sure that Toots is gone.

 
Dottie finally has a turn ...  others have been here before her..
 

 
From the nest to the frig... our cool old frig. 
You will find eggs from our chickens and
from Debbie's chickens at Fairfield Cottage Farm.
 

 
Eggs stacked and waiting for you...

 
Lovely delicious eggs... Try some!

Another DIY..


Picnic baskets have been used for decades to  hold food and tableware for a picnic meal.  They are considered standard equipment at many picnics..  They are so cool ... it would be fun to use them for other purposes.. 


Add wheels, a bit of paint and viola....

 
Or plant it..... 
 
 
 
Repurpose it as a sewing basket... 
 
 
 
For a gathering to hold cards, gifts, etc... so cute..
