What a game, right Bey? The blackout and Ray Lewis! I actually didn’t see it, but I did see all the action on my Facebook feed. It’s all part of my new thing. I participate in pop-culture events by hearsay–Facebook and Twitter feeds only. Just a side experiment, like my 20 year study of all the zodiac signs. I’m in year 12 now. What can I say? My mind is a crazy place.
I am settling into LA just fine. I moved into my new place over the weekend and had no bed for a couple days, which meant I had to sleep on the floor. I hope I don’t make this sound overly romantic–it was not. The bed came and I got groceries and started to cook, and wouldn’t you know it, the smoke detectors must detect heat because there was zero smoke and both of them went off and would not stop — so annoying!
What did I make? I’m working on a little project with avocados. More to come later. One moving tip I can share with you is this: I had to buy a new cast iron skillet and you can’t just use it out the box per se. You have to “season” it. What is that, Chef Ayinde? Well I’m glad you asked. It’s easy!
How-To Season Your Skillet
1. Preheat oven to 380 degrees
2. Coat skillet with oil, inside and out
3. Allow to “season” in oven for 2-3 hours
4. Remove from oven and place on stove to cool
Give it a day and you are ready to cook! Can’t wait to show my new creations. There is soooo much fresh produce here.
