I'm sorry for all the duplicate posts in my feed and emails this week. My blog move hit another pothole; on Monday something renamed hundreds of my posts. I didn't notice until last night, when I was asked about the Not Found errors that were all over Dad Cooks Dinner.
I had to restore from an early Monday morning backup; all the comments since then are gone, and I had to re-enter the Why Use Cast Iron post. (That's why, if you get my emails, you're getting the cast iron post again today.)
This is probably not related to a different problem - I had a RSS feed issue caused by a Pinterest plugin. When I fixed that ine the result was a bunch of duplicates from last week on Facebook and Twitter. 1
Again, my apologies for all the duplicate posts. To make up for it: Here's a bonus PicOfTheWeek of our Sunday Dinner, simmering, boiling, steaming, and frying on the stove.
I've read those silicone handles are a little big for the non-enamold Lodge skillet. Is this true? What are your thoughts? I've used the quilted ones for awhile. Which do you prefer. Great website by the way!

I don't understand those reviews - the silicone handle fits well on my 12 inch skillet. Maybe they're talking about some of the smaller sizes? I'll have to try it on my 10 inch skillet. I prefer the quilted handles when I'm moving the skillet in and out of the oven; they slide on and off easier. I prefer the silicone handle when the skillet is staying on the stovetop.
Where did you get that wonderful looking silicone cover for the handle of your cast iron skillet?

I got it at Lehman's Old Time Hardware, but they are also available on Amazon:
