Try to contain your surprise.
It's not just gadgets, either -- it's the accoutrements that go along with the gadgets. The serving pieces. Platters. Bowls. Divided servers. Fondue accessories. Marble cheese blocks. A coordinated set of a pitcher/three-bowl-salsa-server/margarita glass salter.
I never realized how many Southern Living at Home and Pampered Chef parties I attended until I started unpacking this crap. Damn.
So when I saw a New! featured item from Le Creuset pop up on my Facebook page this morning I had to check it out.
The Le Creuset Cassoulet Set. A cooking vessel with matching serving bowls.
Have I ever made cassoulet? Who cares! This set is so darm fabulous that I will learn! (By the way, I haven't. Yet.)
Does it matter that the color isn't/doesn't match my existing collection of kiwi Le Creuset? Not at all! Variety is good!
Just look at that blueberry cobbler, sitting there so tempting -- the cookware makes it look good. Heh.
I'm just going to add this to my rolling wish list for now -- it's definitely a Want Don't Need item. But my birthday is coming up soon, so who knows... there might be a cassoulet thank you for some lucky soul.
Just keep that in mind.
