Another week, another few bits of randomness (I'm trying to get into a habit here!)

Live A Colorful Life

I reclaimed my kitchen this week, which was a not inconsiderable achievement, and involved lots of hours of scrubbing, and wiping and reshuffling, but I'm happy that it's now all clear.  I picked up a few wee things to help me along:

Le Creuset stoneware, cool tools and spatula, also imagine there's a couple of utensil jars

Just little bits and pieces that let me rearrange, or embrace things that were clean and fresh.  Now while I could probably have made oven gloves myself, I actually prefer these shop bought ones because they're seriously hard wearing, and I'm afraid pretty quilting cotton and the like just doesn't stand up in the same way!  I'm quite glad I'm about to find myself away from the city centre for my new job though, as it turns out there's a Le Creuset shop just round the corner from my office.  I think it's been there a while, but I rarely go into the Princes Square Shopping Centre due to the rather high end nature of its shops!  I picked up the teal stuff above when my friend led me astray in there last Thursday and found it was all 30% off (at least I picked a sale colour ;o) )

Now I'm plotting on how and where to take better photos for my food blog.  There's an idea brewing, but it requires some of last Sunday's goals to be met first...

    Have fun reclaiming your kitchen.

  4. I have endless pieces of cast iron Le Crueset in deep blue (years old) and I love it - but it is so heavy. Is the pottery version the same? Saw your food blog and felt my post today was relevant regarding making food pretty (or being a food stylist)!

  7. OOH, your le creuset stash is awesome! And I"m so jealous that you got that done. I need to do the same and just don't want to give up my quilting time to do it! I have to remember how good it feels to do it. btw - I don't like to use my handmade pot holders either. I never want to wreck them!

  10. Le Creuset pans are the best investment you could make - I have some that are 30 (yes 30!) years old, still going strong and used every day. They are a joy to cook with and I love the teal color!

  15. I love your Le Crueset, the pots I have are my favourites. I have one that was my grandmothers, they indeed last for a very very long time.

  19. Ooh, love it. And what a good idea. If I finally sort, reorganise and completely clean my kitchen (something that has been on my todo list for a few months now), then I can reward myself with some le creuset. I only have one piece so far - picked the purple. But several things you have there are on my list.
