Obsessed....

I need a Le Creuet Dutch Oven.  I have become pretty much obsessed.  Above is a picture from Bakerella's website from when she went to visit my main squeeze, Pioneer Woman.    Yepp, I am all jealous of P-Dub's amazing collection, and that Bakerella got to visit her.  Can you only imagine how amazing all their meals were?  Oh my gosh I gain about 20lbs just thinking about it....

But anyways back to the Le Creuset.... So I have been needing an dutch oven for like forever, and last year I asked for one for Christmas, and didn't get one.  No biggie.  Bonus for me since I know which one I want now, but negative for me as have you priced these freaking things?  Behold, QVC has them and for the larger size it's $275 plus some tax and shipping.  Minor freak out.   Never fear, I am on a hunt.  I actually come across one at a local thrift store.  It was marked down to less then $30, and I heard the angel's singing, a tear dripped down my eye, and I hugged it.  But then... I opened it, and discovered it was pretty much involved in a kitchen fire, and was ruined beyond repair  It was cracked, it was just an awful site.  No clue why the idiots even had it for sale due to the condition, because all they did was attempt to trick me.  I was so close, but yet just so far away...

I also have spied some at TJmaxx, Marshalls, and Tuesday Morning... and I may give in soon and bite the bullet and get them discounted from there.  But before I do that, I am going to try searching a little more at some thrift stores.  I know it can happen, my own mom just got a Le Creuset Stock pot at one this week in perfect condition.  She offered it to me, but I am going to let her enjoy it, and honestly I know she will get more use out of a stock pot then I would. 

So my search continues..... I hit up a Goodwill this morning, and I am going to try to check out a few other places this weekend.
