A package arrived yesterday… WHAT COULD IT BE ?????!!!!!
OH MY GOOOODDNESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everyone who knows me knows I have been wanting a Dutch Oven for YEARS. I even had the gall to put a request on this blog (Stuff I Would Like to Have). My mom surprised me with one 3 Christmases ago but the lid was chipped and it had to be returned. The money from the Dutch Oven then went to pay for boots for my older daughter – b/c that is how life goes. But many thanks to my amazing friend Magdalen, I’m now the owner of a beautiful blue Le Creuset!!!!
THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU MAGDALEN!!!!!!!!! I AM ELATED! 🙂
PS: No give backs. Right?!

Of course no give backs. The whole I idea was to get rid of the thing.
Don’t get me wrong — I love Le Creuset. You’d have to pry my cold, dead fingers away from the ones I use all the time. But the oval one was always the Ugly Duckling in my kitchen. When I say it’s very little used, trust me, I’m not kidding.
In fact, I warned Christy several times that it was uh, petite — I made sure she saw it on a Le Creuset page (there are much bigger oval Dutch ovens…) and approved it before I sent it off. My thinking was: No give backs!!!!
Now I get to see about a larger Le Creuset for myself…
(Glad you like it, sweetie!)
Ugly duckling, my @$$ !!!!!!!
This lil blue baby is SmOKIN!
Magdalen, you are too modest, generous and lovely for words. This Le Creuset is the most beautiful, to be cherished thing in my kitchen. I cannot thank you enough. (I had to include the photos – even w/out makeup & hairbrushing!! SORRY. LOL)
Beautiful! And a Le Creuset to boot!
Your husband must be pretty jealous of the way you’re handling that thing.
OOOohhhhh I AM IN LOVE! (PS: He left before I opened it. Do you think he’ll notice when I bring Le Creuset to bed tonight?)
I noticed -_-
Yes, I know. PS: Dutch Oven said you’re taking up too much room in the bed. (Psst. I think he’s just being greedy. What say we kick him back to the kitchen and get cookin?)
Oh wow! What a beauty! I know it will bring you much joy in your kitchen.
I have a black Le Creuset braiser and I love it! I wrote about it here.
This line of cookware rocks! Though, I only need one. It is so heavy that it stays on my stove top just so I don’t have to take it out of the cabinet.
Tammy, it is seriously beautiful. I have wanted one for so long I barely know what to do with myself. Now the big question is: WHAT TO MAKE FIRST???
some kind of apple bake!
OOOOH YEEESSSS!!! Thanks Steph – perfecto!
I know, right?!
Glad it worked out.
It’s a beautiful blue, and I LOVE how you adore it in the pics!!
Ain’t he gorgeous?!! YOU KNOW HE IS!! LOL
HAH – so glad you like the pix, Myra! I just had to capture “the moment” — in retrospect I should have showered and gotten dressed but true love is so above appearances (right??) hahahah
I second Myra. The look on your face is PRICELESS.
Priceless = unwashed. LOL
SWEET! Don’t they come in girlie pink? lol
Hey Mssc54!! I am not sure they make these in pink but I am hoping NOT. (PS: My manly Dutch Oven says he will overlook that part of your comment)
Add to your wish list! Have you seen these?
Type in “Lodge Color” in the search box.
OOoh!! No I hadn’t seen or heard of them but they look NICE. OKAY EVERYONE! I have a 3 qt. dutch oven already, but please feel free to send me any of the others above. THANKS! 😉
JEALOUS!!!! But I want a red one. Lucky girl is what you are!
Red is gorgeous! And will look slamming in your new kitchen (hint to the hubs). Funny, I thought I wanted green (my favorite color) but this blue is sensational. I was washing the lid earlier and the paint gradation from rim to knob is so subtle, it’s stunning. I’m floored to call it my own. And I can’t believe I have such great friends. Magdalen, YOU ROCK !!!!
Oooh, it’s so pretty. But what do you cook in one? I’m a dummy–have no clue.
Thanks GG!! Friends have recommended everything from braised lamb shanks, Pot roast, Baked beans, Short ribs and Osso Buco to a whole roasted chicken with veggies. MMMMmmmm!!!!
But I of course went SWEET! I christened my beloved with a super pear & apple crisp- many thanks to my friend Stephanie’s suggestion above. I’m off to post the recipe on my (other) Daily Dish. Check it out later!!
The recipe is UP! Dutch Oven Apple Pear Crisp.
Oh my gosh! I love the colour!! I’ve been wanting one for ages too… So what’s the first thing you’re going to cook in it??
Hey Leaf – Thanks!! I baked an apple pear crisp — the link is above. DELISH!
Wow, that IS GORGEOUS. I have been cyberlusting after one in turquoise but the dark blue is beeeeeeautiful. She is a spectacularly great friend!!!
Thanks babe! I had to wash & stow it away today. Seems a tragedy not to keep it out for show, but I’m paranoid it’ll get chipped.
Well see I knew that list of stuff you wanted would come in handy some day 🙂 Lucky Girl!
P.S. I have been making the cutest headbands…I think you and the girls would enjoy making and wearing them 🙂
I KNOW! Proof that begging WORKS! PS: Off to check them out – you’re so creative! XO
I have that color in 8 qt and a red one that’s 4 qt. Most useful items ever. I want to go cook about 6 things right now. 🙂
Hooray! Hope you made something fabulous, Karen! Happy Valentine’s Day!!
Great blue coloured one. We have a red one similar, my wife loves it. Must be a woman thing, to me it’s just a cooking implement, I’m more interested in the food that comes out of it
Maybe it’s the kitchen equivalent of an upscale pair of shoes?
