Last year I saw these dutch ovens at Walmart for a mere 6 bucks each. I soooo could not pass up having a dutch oven in this deep turquoise blue color enamelware. You folks can keep your black speckled granite ware, I just can't bear going around in black! (that's a line from Gone With the Wind, in case anybody didn't catch that.)
This morning I made baked rice and veggie casserole:
Oh, Dutch Oven! You nurture me, entertain me, you are visually pleasing to the eye. You are filled with substance, and even on your empty, shallow days, you can perk me up with a twinkle of your blue enamel eye as I pass you by. You are tidy, self-contained and don't clutter up my kitchen with your unnecessary possessions.
Will you marry me? I think we are a match made in heaven and nowhere else on earth have I found anyone so delightfully compatible as you! I would be so proud to call myself Mrs. Dutch Ponsonby-Oven. Let's just not tell the Cuisinart, okay?
