For the most part, I make no plans, rarely use coupons, look for good deals and cook for health, thrift, and on the fly!

Obsessed is the word I'd use to describe how I feel about my cast iron skillets. I have 3 right now, an 8", 12" and the square grilling skillet. All three have never disappointed me or my family. (However, I do have to admit that the grilling pan is harder to clean.)
Clearly, you can cook anything in a cast iron skillet and I have found some great recipes that I would not have thought of. Pie for one! Macaroni and cheese for two. Both are absolutely delicious.
We grilled some steaks the other day and I was in charge of the sides. It was just the two of us, so I could add onions. HA!
The nice thing about cast iron, is that it keeps the heat even throughout the pan surface even after you turn off the burner. The caramelization that happens to the potatoes is great. I just sliced the potatoes rather thin along with the onions. For the oil, I used vegetable oil in the pan and added some unsalted butter, just a tablespoon or so, for flavor. The seasonings are simple, pepper, kosher salt and garlic powder.
