Two Things...

  1. I want this pot.  I have fallen in love with it.  A while ago, I decided to start slowly purchasing all of the really, really nice kitchen equipment that I've always wanted but never felt like I could actually have.  This Le Creuset French Oven is next on my list.  I've never been able to justify one, since it's $300 and that seems like a lot for a kitchen pot.  But, I don't care.  I want it.  And I realize that there are cheaper ones.  Lodge makes a very nice one for a fraction of the cost.  I don't care.  I want the Le Creuset one.  I have been dreaming about it.  Yet, I still feel too guilty about spending that much to buy it.  I will though, soon.

  2. I am back to my normal running schedule, and I ran Tuesday at a pretty fast clip for my first run back.  I took it easier tonight and went at a slower pace.  I have 8 miles to do on Saturday, and I figured I should take it somewhat easy tonight so I'll be ready.  I was up late doing a software release for work last night and didn't get to bed until about 3am.  Plus, this is the longest I've taken off from running since 2007, and, yay!  It seems like I haven't really lost much and I should be back to pre-Indonesia fitness soon!  Yay!  Also, temps were in the 60s today, and I have to say that it was GREAT because I'm not used to the cold anymore...

I got that Le Creuset pot for Christmas! (Nick is kind of terrible at gift-purchasing, so he will buy anything I ask for, no questions asked.) It is awesome. Not sure how it compares to the Lodge, but it literally is so well insulated that I have to adjust my cooking style to accommodate that.

oooh, I'm so jealous!!! What size did you get? Serious Eats says the 7 1/2 qt, but that seems so huge. Yet, they also noted that it would be "big enough to roast a chicken in" which totally justifies the huge size. If I like it, I can get a smaller one, too ;)

I have the 5 1/2 qt--that is big enough to roast a chicken in, but I am not all that wild about using it for that purpose. Made fabulous chicken and dumplings in it though.

I have one of those (but in yellow), and I got mine on eBay for $120 brand new! Definitely was the way to go. I've had it for years and I LOVE it!
