Darn you, Internet!
It’s 23:19 and I’m baking bread in my 2 quart Lodge dutch oven. It’s a long story and that isn’t the point. I’m in my kitchen, everyone else in the house is asleep because she is 3 and her bedtime is before 20:00 and he has to go to work in the morning and is more sane than I am.
What’s a girl to do?
I decide to waste some time on the internet. I search for Is Le Crueset worth it? Because, well, I want to know. I get this link and feel really good about my Lodge. And start craving ribs, but it is almost midnight and I am not going there.
Then I find this post. My enameled cookware is not Lodge brand, but she has some good points about the colors. I guess I am all superficial like that too.
But then (dear lord!) I follow the link to the sample colors! Don’t do it! I wish I hadn’t! There is no going back!
I wish I could unsee that!
I still love my plain, Lodge cast iron. I know that I will never be able to afford Le Creuset. I am OK with that…. mostly.
My Father In Law has this saying “window shopping just makes you dis-satisfied with what you have.” That isn’t quite what I’m feeling here. I adore what I have…. It would just be nice in a different colour.
And I completely agree with the author… I can’t thoil an extra $200 just to get my colour preference. That is just ridiculous. Never mind that my favourite colours aren’t even available in this country.
Maybe I’ll win a Pioneer Woman give away someday.
In the mean time…. I have fresh bread for breakfast.
