Well, I broke down and bought a new frying pan yesterday. I threw out the old one after the handle broke off and I spilled hash browns all over my floor. I find that every five years or so I must break down and buy something new in kitchen ware. That pan was bought when I bought my house six years ago. It was the cheapest frying pan I could find. Overall, I can't complain. I've got some cutlery that goes back to the Clinton Administration. It still looks just fine.
Anyway, I bought my new frying pan at a large membership store that also sells lots of other stuff and does not have the word Sam in its name. I'm not giving them a free plug, so I'm not mentioning them by name. I cooked some french fries in it for my first project. I actually do cook other things than just potatoes, the fact it was french fries was mere coincidence. Keep on cooking!
