I Got One!


Hey everyone!  Do you remember back in December when I was asking for opinions regarding Dutch ovens?  Well, I spent quite a lot of time looking, reading and querying lots of folks and finally decided on one.  So, YAY, I am now the happy owner of this beauty.......

I chose this beautiful red and a 5.5 qt. size -- plenty big enough for our needs & not so heavy that 
I cannot lift it into the wall oven.  That is a major plus!

Lodge is the original cast iron maker right here in the USA.  I queried a friend who actually belongs to a "Dutch Oven Cooking Club," and the Lodge is the one that he uses and the one used by most of the group members (large group).

Beautifully smooth inside and there has been absolutely no sticking.

I am very happy with my choice.  It is a perfect "work horse" addition to my kitchen!  An added plus is that The Man didn't have to take out a "2nd" on our home to buy this!

Now for just a bit of randomness.

Have y'all heard about these or use them?  Cannot remember where I first heard about these, but I was immediately on a mission to find them.

I have double wall-ovens, the top is self-cleaning, but the lower one is not.  Guess which one almost never gets used?  It is enough work and very stinky to get the self-cleaning oven thoroughly cleaned; so I have avoided using the lower oven except for keeping something warm -- big waste!

With these liners, I can use both ovens and only have to pull out the liners and wipe them clean if there is spillage.

These liners cover the entire bottom of the oven, & they sit under the lower coil.

I really hate running the self-clean cycle.  It takes a long time, heats up the house, and is just
so doggone stinky!

  The Man found these on Amazon (just do a search for oven liners if you are interested), but they also have them at Bed Bath & Beyond.

I'm a happy little "Suzy Homemaker" now!
