To be honest, I had to do a little thinking on what I was going to write today. Nothing was shouting out at me, so I figured I'd do a little snooping through my pictures, kitchen, closets to see if I could find something that I wanted to tell you all about.
Turns out, I found something fabulous! The other day I decided I needed to get off my butt a bit more and start cooking regularly again (I've gotten a little lazy this summer). Avi had a cold and Richie claimed to be coming down with something, so soup it was. Out of all the things I cook, I've been told on more than one occasion, that I have a real knack for soups.
I went into my kitchen looking for some inspiration, but the first thing I wound up pulling out was my superamazing and all-time-favorite pot: my Le Creuset Round French Oven (I also have an oval and a wok). For some reason it just feels like the right thing to make soups and stews in. I've had it for a handful of years now and I have a good feeling that I'll keep it forever and ever (which is about as eco-friendly as you can get).
It turned out perfect for the other night as I had a cook-on-top-of-the-stove-and-then-pop-it-in-the-oven-for-a-bit type situation. I also pulled out the wok to make some truffled cabbage to go along with the meal! Everything was superyum and cooked to perfection thanks to my favorite pots and pans!
