    Exactly. This morning I woke up to a pan that hubby had cooked some ham in. I threw in a piece of bacon and then some pork chops LOL!

    Non primal thought: concerned about turning rancid/sick? I never know if I should wash it out first!

    I do this all the time and I've never gotten sick, but our kitchen is very cool at night.

    You know you're primal when you see marrow bones at the grocery 5 minutes from your house and squeal like a small child.

    A few things to think about
    - My grandmother (and all her generation) kept a jar of bacon grease on the stove all the time. I do the same. It takes months for good fat to go bad at room temp, even in the summer in GA.
    - People used to preserve things in fat, like duck confit & pemmican. Yumyumyumyumyumyum. (My farmer still does!)
    - You just cooked everything in that base of that pan to an extremely high temperature.
    - On our first long family trip driving cross-country & hitting national parks, we cooked on a camp stove with cast iron every morning (& eventually, dinner, too). We discovered that if we never washed the pan, it got more and more seasoned. It's hard to do otherwise at home now that we know we don't have to!
    - We've been doing it at home for four years now. Not dead yet.

    We rarely wash our iron. My mother would keel over just from knowing that. Even my bacon-grease grandma would have. She was from the Hygiene Generation and washed her dishes in Clorox. !!

    You have your apple and banana with peanut butter because it's there and you ran out of almond butter, but it tastes gross.

    You go for an hour long walk outside in 30 degree weather in jeans and a t-shirt and don't even realize you forgot your jacket until you reach your door at the end of it.

    You play fetch/ ball with your dog (fed grain free), the neighbor kids, and their dog, and realize you last longer than all of 'em.
