{ mmm pesto }

May 19/10


I am now the happy owner of a brand new Kitchen Aid Cookware Cast Iron 3.5 Quart Covered Round Dutch Oven in Pesto! I ordered this beauty from CSN Stores online and within a couple weeks it was delivered to my door by Purolator. Being in Canada, it can sometimes be a pain in the butt ordering items from the US because of customs, duty, etc, but with CSN all of those fees are pre-paid so when your order arrives there's no additional bill to pay. It was painless and awesome! I would totally order from CSN again.

Now onto the pot... yesterday I had all these glorious plans to do a whole blog post with pictures of my Pesto Dutch Oven's inauguration. I was going to include the recipe with step by step photos like Ree's (ya right!! she is my hero. lol). I was going to show you how the dutch oven went from browning the pork tenderloin on the stove top, to roasting it in the oven with fresh cloves of garlic, thyme, cayenne and lots of freshly ground black pepper. And then there would have been pics of how gorgeous the finished meal looked on the table.

But alas, just as I was putting the meat into the pot, my daughter fell part way down the stairs and injured her ankle. :( So, off to the ER we went. The fancy blog post will have to wait for another day. Meanwhile, she is recovering well and is trying to get used to using crutches for the first time in her life.


PS. This blog post has been sponsored by CSN Stores.  I received a $100 gift certificate from them in exchange for blogging about them. I ordered this lovely dutch oven with my gift certificate. Thank you, CSN!!
