Le Creuset, Ooh La La!

Le Creuset Signature Round Dutch Oven, 7 1/4-Qt., Ocean

Pete got me this lovely dutch oven for our 6th anniversary back in June. The sixth anniversary is Iron - we just started doing the traditional gifts last year; he got me a wooden vase with a pretty gerber daisy in it for our fifth anniversary. I have no idea what I got him. This year I gave him a T-shirt with the Tasty Table on it ('cause iron's an element, get it? I know, it was a bit of a stretch, but he loves the shirt so all is well).

June doesn't exactly scream 'dutch oven weather' so I've just now been using it. So far so good! I made cobbler with apples we picked at the orchard last weekend.

And Sunday I made the Italian Beef Stew from the Jan/Feb 2011 issue of Cooking Light. It was delish! My first time to let something simmer for 1hr, 45 min that wasn't in a Crock Pot.
