The Little Red Pot Who Could
Introducing The Little Red Pot Who Could
So for my birthday I was allowed to buy something anything. I wanted this little Staub Round 2-Quart Cocotte, Pimento Red Pot after seeing, Wandering Chopstick's cute tomato pot. I thought I should get one. It looks cute eh? It's a Staub. It's from France. It seems useful? It's on sale. Right when I was about to purchase it though, the price doubled from $50 to $100. Rats! So I continued to monitor it. :D Then it went down to $44.50. Should I? Shouldn't I? I convinced myself out of it. I don't know how to cook that well. What if I don't know what to do with it? I've never purchased anything for the kitchen that cost that much. Most of the cookware I've received were wedding gifts. Too much indecision caused me to miss the deal again. Amazon stop playing with my mind!!! So after forgetting about it for a couple weeks, the price dropped again to $44.50. I hopped on the sale and purchased it! Just my luck though, the next day it dropped 5 bucks.:D WAH. Luckily though we were able to get a price adjustment. Yay.
My little red pot arrived. It's cuter than I thought it would be. It's darker red on the bottom and is two toned. Viva La France! It's a dutch oven, though Le Creuset calls their versions French ovens. I think that's clever. Stay tuned for many recipes from the little red pot who could. My brain has exploded w/ all the recipes I want try. Plus I'm still searching for more recipes. :) Any thoughts? Do you have one of these cast iron beauties? Can you tell I'm excited?
