let's get COOKIN!

after receiving so many wonderful kitchen gadgets and gizmos (including: 4 NEW shiny, light-colored cookie sheets...perfect for rolls and cookies; a candy thermometer...great for caramels; a wooden spoon from my amazing sis in law cathy...oh how i love wooden spoons; an amish rolling pin; and of course, an orange le creuset dutch oven), i couldn't wait to get in the kitchen and test them out!

this morning before church, and consequently before a shower or makeup, i seared up some onions and a roast, mixed in some beef broth and garlic, and let my beautiful little 5.5 quart dutch oven work some magic. it was the most comforting thing after an InSaNe day in primary to come home to the most TENDER, most JUICY, most PERFECT roast ever, all thanks to this little magical pot! oh, i do love my little pot!

Lisa, I'm starting to realize how much we have in common! I got a dutch oven too (only mine's a Martha Stewart - no top o' the line pots here, boo hoo). I can't wait to make a roast that doesn't come out with the texture of beef jerkey!

I had two floods to deal with today, and needless to say the flood of posts I had to catch-up on was much more fun than the flood in my hallway/living room/bedroom. As always, Lis, thanks for taking the time to post the pics and videos. It certainly helps dull the pain of not being able to squeeze those red flapped bums myself! I love you guys and I'm glad you all had a great Christmas!!
