99 bottles of beer on the wall . . .

99 bottles . . . wait I mean bars of soap.  


Well we don't have 99 bars yet, but at the rate he's making it, we soon might. Yesterday's batch is the white soap he calls a "Castile" style soap. (And Margie if you're reading this you know you might have homemade soap at your house soon.) (Phil did you get the recipes I emailed you?)


Valentine's day is fast approaching. Today he made me the heart hanger to hang my Griswold/Wagner muffin pan. When he gave it to me, he said Happy Valentine's day a little early. And why that clock has military time, I have no clue.


Today we rearranged all our cast iron skillets.  They range from #I to a #8. I am still looking for a #11 Wagner skillet. There will be no more pineapple upside-down cakes again until I find one.  (Thanks favorite BIL Pat, for stealing mine)

Love that soap! I also have a cast iron skillet collection just from grandparents who passed them down. So what is so special about #11?

Barb said...

Oh....I am amazed at your soap.

The soap looks great! Almost like bars of white and dark chocolate. :)

And it reminds me I really need to get going on another batch so it has time to cure before we run out of the current batch.

I have several pieces of cast iron too. I'm looking for a dutch over at the moment. Love the soap.

You and BT will definitely be CLEAN! That's a lot of soap!

Nice early valentines day present. I wish I had wall space to hang stuff, but all are taken either by "stuff" already or furniture.

Later!

Oh baby, ya can't turn your back on those brother~out~laws, can ya??? They'll get ya every time.

Your soap looks almost good enough to eat. 'Just sayin'....(at first glance I thought it was fudge ... Heeheehhee).

I know, sometimes the blonde shines through.

I adore your early Valentine's present. Early's not bad. :o)

Hope ya find an 11 incher soon and very soon, what's life with out a great upside~down cake???

God bless ya sweetie and have a magnificent day!!!

Love how you have your cast iron arranged! Wish mine was like that too instead of crammed in the cabinet : )

Neat soap post below-I've always wanted to try making it.

That's a lot of cast iron hanging in your kitchen. I love cast iron, have several pieces myself and have given some away to grandchildren. Love your site and drop in to read it often.

I picked up a couple of cast iron skillets by the side of the road on a trash pick up day! They need cleaning. Have you used the oven cleaner method, or the lye cleaning method? Both seem to work equally well according to the Griz and Wagner sites I've researched. Just wondering if you've used them. The insides of the skillets aren't too bad after seasoning, but the outsides are groody!

Thanks for following my blog, especially since it led me to yours! I am enjoying reading over your posts, and sheesh, soon you will be drowning in soap. Although I suppose that isn't a bad way to go.

Regarding your comment on another's blog: I just love all those little Mennonite stores around Versailles! I picked up a map of all the little shops down there from Weaver's, and plan on making another pass through now that I know all that's down there.

I love your pot rack! Did your husband make it? It looks so useful. I need one, but mine will look messy b/c I have just my grandmothers skillets and then alot of misc. cast iron - but I use it all! I just need a better way to store it so it's easy to grab and use.
