Today was a productive day, minus my not-so-perfect peanut butter brownies.. I found a Le Creuset oval 9-quart dutch oven at TJMaxx!! The store had been getting a lot of Le Creuset kitchenware lately but no true cookware, so I am sure you can imagine my excitement when I looked down and saw the bright orange Le Creuset box containing a beautiful large dutch oven for 50% off!
I’ve really needed one lately, and now that I am settled into my new apartment (at least for another year and a half) I figured it was finally time to commit to one that is of quality that can stand up to my not so gentile ways. I wasn’t ready to spend a lot of money but when I found this one at such a steep discount I figured the investment was worth the reduced price!
This is it! Only the color yellow is called Dijon on the web, but it looks much less yellow in person- I like warmer hues of creams, whites and taupes, so the yellow fits into the pallet I promise. The yellow is pretty and surprisingly neutral so it will work with whatever colors I want to incorporate later on.
Now, with my new dutch oven as a symbol to start the year off right, I am organizing my New Years Resolutions.
What are your resolutions?
Do you have any new symbols in your life that will influence your resolutions?
