Two important facts will help my readers better understand this unlikely but classic example of surreal serendipity:
1—I like to cook
2—I have three dogs
Please do not despair for my dogs! While my intention has always been those two passions should never intersect, on this once occasion, they did. My story follows.
For months, I’ve unsuccessfully combed flea markets, Salvation Army stores and especially, garage sales in Northern Illinois, where I have a store, and in South Eastern Wisconsin, where I live, searching for an elusive black, heavy and a marvelous conductor of even heat for cooks, a cast iron skillet.
