I have a new love in my life… One I never new I had… And it’s with my brand new Le Creuset , Ocean Blue Dutch Oven set!💘
We are a true match made in heaven!
I just realized after living in my town for almost 5 years. There is a Le Creuset Outlet Store right around the fricken corner! Ok a little further than around the corner but close enough!
You may think, is this woman totally sheltered or what? Outlets, Big deal! Well for me… I have 3 young children🙉🙈🙊 so kind of sheltered & a Big Deal!
I love Baking & I love Cooking!
So for me… I was like a kid in a candy store🍭 When I opened that door it was like angels singing & heavenly lights shining down upon me!
Colors of every variety ❤️💛💚💙💜 & every Accessory to match! Even a beautiful French press 🙃 It was wonderful!
And to top it all off, the color I chose is 50% off for the rest of the month! You better hurry while it last!
I didn’t buy day 1. Why? Well, because Le Creuset is expensive stuff! I went back to the store however, the following day. I know, WoW a whole day later! But, after giving much thought & running it all past Mc Guyver. It was a GO! He tells this story a little differently. 🙂
After the very looooong 24 hours that I was away from the store. Day dreaming of the color choices that I had before me… I pondered… Was it going to be the Lime Green color or the Beautiful Ocean Blue? Decisions, decisions…
I have & love my equally Awesome “Lodge” Round Dutch oven! It has worked wonderfully for my family & is way cheaper!
And way back when, I just wasn’t ready to invest in Le Creuset.
Until now, and Oh my I am happy!!!!!
Only magic has happened since. Thank you dear father for putting me in harmony with the awesome Dutch oven. Truly, A family must for M5 & for you & your family too!
I remember being so intimidated using a dutch oven. They are so heavy, enameled, iron. Am I suppose to season it or not? What does seasoning really mean? It all seemed so complicated.
Dutch ovens are so versatile! I can use it on the stovetop for an out of this world soup, or in the oven to bake bread!
Wait… What? Bake bread!!! Stop the bus 🚌 !!! Yes I can! I have & it’s a home run!!! Mmm, Crusty Artisan Bread!
Deliciously crunchy on the outside, soft & chewy on the inside!
Now I gotta go & bake a loaf🍞 & take pictures to share of course!
This all is just my personal opinion. I am nothing but a self proclaimed, day dreaming mountain mama baker sharing my love of the wonderful Dutch Oven!
Happy Baking Happy Camping Happy Wheeling🍴
