Super Buy

The other day I went to Macy's to buy a Dutch Oven.  I thought I knew exactly what I wanted until I flipped it over and saw those hated words 'Made In China'.  I set it down so quickly I think the sales clerk's head was spinning.  I continued to look and look.  I found one from Calphalon but it was $320!  I had a rebate gift card from Macy's for $150 so to me it was still too much.

Then I spotted the one I HAD to have.  It wasn't really a Dutch Oven but it didn't matter.  It was toooo pretty to leave the store without it.  It was on sale too, plus I got 15% off using my Macy's card.
7 1/4 qt. Round French Oven

Tonight I made my first dinner using my beautiful Cherry Le Creuset Round French Oven, Beef Tenderloin with Roasted Shallots.  I needed a beef tenderloin for it so I headed down to Wigley's at Detroit Eastern Market.  They had none!  The clerk said they're too expensive right now and she was right!  When I did find one at Costco it was $18/pound!  I had to *settle* for a package of filet mignon instead. I know, poor me.

The dish turned out so well it is going on my repertoire list and the pot was so easy to clean up.  I sure do wonder why I didn't buy it years ago.  I've always wanted one.  Now I want more of them!
