So what does this have to do with today's pic? I am going to have to say goodbye to a beloved pan. It is the first stone I ever bought. It was a true splurge at the time. I have used it several times a week since I got it in 1998. Sadly, when I made my chocolate sheet cake this week, I noticed it was sticky on the bottom. Yes, it has finally decided to give into the thousands of uses, hundreds of recipes, and many, many degrees of heat and cracked on me. It is a sad day. Mr Incredible told me to "just go buy a new one" but he obviously does not understand the perfect state of "seasoning" it was in.
Good-bye dear friend, my kitchen will not be the same without you :-(
