So every year I try to learn at least one new skill. The skill isn’t really new per say. I’ve cooked on one before when the power was out, but I’m going to try to cook more this winter on my wood stove. I’m setting out to save electric. We use this already to heat the house during the winter so why not use it? My whole house is electric and hopefully soon we will be moving. (By soon I mean within 6 months.) That house is all gas. I’m not a fan of either quite frankly. Money sucked out of my pocket by a company really isn’t my cup of tea. Speaking of tea..I have a teapot that will go on there too now.
So here is my Christmas gift to myself. This dutch oven is not the camping one you use outside. It has a flat bottom and a roundish lid. It holds as much water as my double handled pan and was a perfect purchase. I have all cast iron frying pans already and all I need now is a sauce pan!
What’s for dinner?? Spagetti! We are adding mushroom soup to it for our meal. It’s nice to go meatless every now and then. I will post later about a great mushroom soup recipe.
Yum Yum. BTW my husband said, “What are you doing?” I said, “Cooking on the wood burner.” He just smiled that, ‘ You’re crazy’ smile. Oh well he will get used to my crazy ways! He didn’t have any trouble eating the food!
Happy Homesteading!! 😀
