Attention Kmart shoppers. . .

Kathleen has been looking for this classic Granite-ware roasting pan ever since she gave her huge one away to the Vietnam Vets 13 years ago, because it would not fit in her new oven. She's looked for a smaller version in Macy's, Kohl's, Target, even Williams Sonoma, but to no avail.  (It's just a $15 item). Granite-ware (which has no granite in it, but has speckled paint to make it look like granite) is made of porcelain and steel, browns better, is dishwasher safe, lasts a lifetime and is made in the U.S.A. What could be better? Today, on a hunch, we checked out the Dundas Kmart and were thrilled to find it on our first pass through Housewares, positioned just beyond the Paula Deen cookware display. We chose the nicely-sized 15-pound model.
Dan, young at 74,
chillin' to Floyd Cramer -- on vinyl of course.
It's home now, washed and standing by for its first assignment: a roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy dinner in honor of Kathleen's brother Danny tomorrow.
We'll deliver the hot beef and fixings still in the new roasting pan, Meals on Wheels style, for his 75th Birthday celebration. We think Dan's old favorite family dinner will taste just like the one his mother used to make in her Granite-ware roasting pan.
Thank you Kmart.

Exactly like the one I've had for 20?years. I refuse to cook a bigger turkey than that!

It won't let you down!
