For years, Fuzzy and I have lusted over a Le Creuset dutch oven. They are so pretty! You can cook anything in them! But they are so damn expensive--ranging from a couple hundred dollars to several hundred dollars.
A few months ago, I was talking to my bestie Erica about them, and she asked what color I would choose if I were to make the investment. I told her I would choose the cobalt blue.
Fuzzy and I love cast iron cooking...we have 2 sizes of skillets and a bacon press, and all 3 of these items get a lot of use. Whenever we are at a WalMart, we go drool over the Lodge Cast Iron section, and try to add pieces to our collection here and there. Fuzzy recently mentioned that Lodge has an enameled cookware collection, and that we should remember to look into it. On Sunday, we made a quick run to Target, and I was looking at ramekins, when there they were...like a beacon in the night...the enameled dutch ovens. They had 2 colors: red and--wait for it--cobalt. And it was only $60. $60! A great price for something that we wanted and from a brand we trust. So we brought it home...and boy, is it glorious.
Oh, the things I am going to cook in it!
