Mrs. L.A. forgot to turn off the stove after she made a grilled cheese sandwich. Twice.
Between 13 and 15 years ago I bought a well-seasoned fajita pan at a yard sale down the block. Two bucks. With a wooden serving platter yet. (I’ve never used the platter.) I’ll tell you, this thing was slick. It’s our dedicated grilled-sandwich pan, though when I’ve cooked actual food in it, the food just slid right off. Wonderful seasoning on this pan. May be the best two dollars I’ve ever spent.
And now the seasoning is mostly burned off.
