Hello, lover

Hello, lover. Welcome to my life. I can't really explain why this gratin dish makes me so happy. But it does. Oh how it does. I think it helps that the type of things you cook in this dish (so far I've made potatoes gratin and will soon be making mac and cheese), you also have to serve from the dish. There is no removing the mac and cheese to a pretty platter. So it helps to have a pretty dish to bake it in.

And in my opinion, this one's a beauty. I love the color. It matches absolutely nothing in my kitchen, but I like it that way. Standing in the aisle at Sur La Table, I knew I was meant to take it home.

This picture is horrible, but perhaps you can make out the little Le Creuset logo on there. I only have one other Le Creuset item in my kitchen. It is a spatula. But I'm crossing my fingers that in the near future I might have another item or two. There is apparently a Le Creuset outlet near Napa, where John and I are headed in a few weeks. I'm actually not sure if I will be able to handle it. But I will try.
