Say Hello to… Big Red


Isn’t she pretty? πŸ™‚

I have been lusting after Le Creuset for about three years now, but getting a piece was never a priority. Well, some generous family members gave me some money for my birthday, so I pooled it together and gave Big Red a nice new home. I’m planning on making beef stew later this week, so I think that will be her inaugural meal… so excited!!

  20. Chelle- LeCreuset baking dishes are great! If you go on their website you can see the full collection, but I have the square dish and the small and large rectangular dish. I definitely recommend them!

  21. Hello Big Red!! Enjoy your new LeCreuset Chelle.

    I am going in May to get one of my very own!!

  22. oooh… i saw these on the W-S website when we were doing our registry… i was very tempted to put one on because jon’s mom speaks so highly of cast iron cookware. they had a really pretty blue one that i was eyeing.

    maybe i’ll just add it anyways so i can get 10% off after the wedding as part of the completion program, lol.

  23. I’m soooo jealous. I’ll continue to lust until I can manage to pick one up!

  24. I got what you intend, thankyou for putting up.Woh I am delighted to find this website through google. “Remember that what you believe will depend very much on what you are.” by Noah Porter.
