My Big Yummy Pot

Look what I got?!!! I'm beyond excited.

I finally got a Dutch Oven, I've been wanting one for so long! My husband (who's very mature and sophisticated) laughed himself to tears when I told him that is what it's called. I couldn't afford one of the real LeCreuset ones, but that's ok because when I went into Crate and Barrel they had this one and IT'S YELLOW!!

I'm not sure why I'm so very excited about it, but I just love it. In fact, when I was washing it before the first use, I said to my husband, "I just imagine our kids someday fighting over who gets Mom's big yellow pot." I know, very dramatic and sentimental over a pot. Very me.

I've already put it to good use. I've made Pot Roast, French Onion Soup and Beef Stew since I got it, less than a week ago.

It makes me, my kitchen and my hubbie's tummy very happy!


  1. I am very happy for you. This is a BIG deal.

  2. We still giggle every time we use our dutch oven. We, too, (think we) are mature, but some things never get old.

  3. Jules- that must be why we're such great friends! :)
