While cleaning out the basement last week,I trashed some old pans that were the cheap,non stick junk that you would buy at Walmarts but I made one fatal mistake,I tossed out the wife's old Crepe pan.Now she wants a carbon steel crepe pan for the replacement.Can't say as I blame her.I let her skim through the available options and she picked the 9-1/2" Mauviel crepe pan.I wanted to try the DeBuyer since I already have a couple Matfer pans but she shunned at the price and the $18 shipping on top of it.So guess I'll find out what a Muviel is like now. I hope she doesn't miss anything else that I filed in the big green garbage bag.

I wait for my wife to go away before I start clearing stuff out. Last time she left I must have dumped 4 or 5 big sacks of (her) stuff. She is in Florida right now (thus me not in Chicago) so I will be heading to the landfill this week ;)

Just glad my better half is the one to toss things, and she asks me if I'm okay with it. She tossed a very old tier knife I had picked up at a garage sale years ago (pre WWI thing) and when I asked her where it was she just told me. I told her just to tell me when she wants to toss something -

Little crepe pan and a big cast iron lodge did all the duty this weekend - lamb chops, trout,some cod, potatoes, eggs, veg. Only used a stainless pot for doing pasta - love camping - especially on the shores of Lake Superior. Old carbon steel stuff goes in every kitchen - from Michelin 5 star to a campfire and does it with aplomb.
