Good Morning!! There is a precious young lady in my life that is a budding baker. The Lord has blessed her with an amazing talent, not only is she creative and gifted, she has one of the best hearts I have ever had the opportunity to meet. During the holiday season, she would come up and help with all of the pie orders. I so enjoy her company. A few weeks ago, one of my regulars told me he was going to Russia, for a very special occasion, he did not want to show up empty handed, what could I bake. Its a long way to Russia, I had to think outside of what the Cast Iron Grill usually does. I came up with a plan and he ok'd it. The container of goodies needed to be extra special and made with love. I thought of Brittany. This amazing 16 year old, put together a trinket, that this special young man will be giving to his girlfriends mom. I have been GIDDY all weekend. First to be asked to be apart of this amazing journey and to think that Brittany's sweets have traveled all the way to Russia. Today, I pray for his journey.... and I feel so blessed for the amazing people the Lord puts in my life. When I see kids like Brittany.... it makes my heart smile, she is touching lives and making a difference. Happy Monday yall!!!
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
