I hit the jackpot: a less expensive, and high quality, alternative to the Le Creuset Round French Oven. These bad boys start at $150. and I scored mine for… (drum roll please) $30. Until the season for soups, stews and braising is here (um, no it’s August so not yet), I may indulge in my ultimate fantasy: eating a whole box of Froot Loops and Cap’n Crunch from my new and utterly fabulous RED enameled cast iron dutch oven. It’s the equivalent of taking my new shiny red sports car out for the very first time. Look for me later on the ceiling.
