Dutch Oven... love!

There's a new love in Jason's life... our new dutch oven! I've wanted one for a while and my uncle hit up the Chantal warehouse sale in Houston and scored me a red one!! 

I want to say it's my mad cooking skills at play but for real, this dutch oven is the cat's pajamas. For some reason (maybe the even heat distribution) or another (scraping all the good bits back into the food from the bottom of the pot) my old recipes have new life.

Turkey and wild rice soup in the pic above. This one induced groans and grunts while being consumed. I've tried to make a bunch of stuff that will freeze well and be tasty after we are locked in the house with the newborn. I can't wait to thaw this one!!

In the last few weeks we've done these recipes and they've been amazing in the dutch oven, if you need something new to try as winter officially sets in!!

Chicken Wild Rice Soup (used Thanksgiving's left over turkey)
Chicken Pot Pie (the guts)

I have a few recipes that I want to try in the dutch oven. Hopefully I can get to them before this baby drops. My grandmother's steak rolls, beef & broccoli and french onion soup!!
