I will get how to cook on this stove. We will be able to eat fairly decently based upon my cooking on this cookstove.
No telling how many applications of my B&W Ointment for burns I'll be using in the meantime...
LOL...seems I'm rather clumsy at wood cooking. I keep forgetting it's not my regular stovetop -- note to self: stop moving the pan around without a pot holder! I have burns on my fingers, a touch of burn markings on my forearm...
Now, last night, we cooked a pot of ham and bean soup...and it cooked :o)
And I did a peach crisp...yum
I did a pan of cornbread, too...stop laughing...I do know that it needs to be watched more closely, and turned for more even baking...not that I did any of that as you can clearly tell by the blackened/cajun look to that side of the pan...
And here, some lessons learned from the cooking escapades already...this is breakfast this morning...totally woodstove cooked...I can do the on-top-of-the-stove stuff much better than that in-the-oven stuff......pancakes in the warming oven...made in my 10in. skillet.
They came across my cast iron 'missing collection' in the building...the 10in flat griddle, my 14in skillet, a 12 or 14 qt dutch oven, and my cast iron kettle. We did some serious scrubbing with some wire brushes on things this morning, gave them a good coat of shortening and heated them a bit. They look so much prettier now :o) The kettle is on the wood heater, adding humidity to the room.
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
