Weighing in at 10.5 pounds....
...meet my newest addition. A Le Creuset 5.5 quart round french oven. It will provide a workout just lifting it from the cabinet to the stove.

I have needed had an unnatural affection for coveted really, really wanted one of these since attending a cooking class for soups back in the spring. I've been pretty much like Gollum and the ring..."my precious..." (not so pretty, but true :/). They're on sale for Halloween, so I seized opportunity to snag one.

The color is soooooo "me"...Flame. Yep, that's its official color (which makes me like it all the more). Anyone who likes Caliente for a nail polish color is gonna like this shade for cookware.

I am rather certain anything I cook in this pot is gonna taste 10% better just because. Then again, the 19-year-old wedding Revereware is on it's last leg (literally falling apart), so I think it was okay to rationalize getting a new one.

Soup's on.....y'all come over, ya hear?

Isn't it awful that we put something so important as our cooking food in "early marriage" pots and pans that probably leach junk into the kids growing bodies.

There. You have been justified!

OOH...purrty! that is one of my favorite colors too!! I had a roommate whose signature color was blue...she had all sorts of blue stuff...mine was red...from orange-red, rust, and burgundy!! And I love,love love La Creuset. Now that is a pan! Unfortunately, I don't have any...I'll be over soon...do you have chocolate cake for desert?

This looks wonderful! I would love to have some new cookware. After 28 years of marriage, don't you think it's time? (Actually mine is still in great shape, which is why we haven't replaced it.) On my Christmas wishlist now.

Hey Robin! Since I've had no luck e-mailing you (lol, three times), I'm wondering if you would add this post to the BC Carnival? Title: "Honoring Christ During the Holidays." Thanks much!

WOW - I like it!!!!! I've seen these and have been tempted, but like you - couldn't justify buying something so pretty when my other pots worked just fine.

But, it sounds like you really needed it - if your other cookware was 19 years old. Time for a new one! No justifications needed

you make me chuckle --
Gollum is great for Halloween.
They really should pay you for the advertisements -- soup pot, ice cream, skillet

Married to my college sweet-heart :)...three GREAT kids I'm not selling to the circus today...I LOVE to laugh (& smile often)...love to read & cook, hate to shop (unless the store is very small and doesn't leave me dazed and confused). I'm scared of flying so although I'd like to travel more, I don't.

I've been pleasantly surprised to find life in my 40s to be an amazing time of transformation & discovery--of self, others, creation and the Creator.

Here's a partial explanation for my Blog title. I think it'd be cool if they really existed.

A Pensieve is a stone basin.... [One] can extract his or her own memories and place them in the Pensieve, especially to relieve the mind when it becomes too flooded with information. Anyone can examine the memories in the Pensieve, which also allows viewers to fully immerse themselves in the memories stored within...

A Pensieve first appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire...
