My shiny new Dutch Oven

I’ve been reading a lot of recipes lately, and have been frankly astounded by the number of non-stew recipes that call for a Dutch oven. Take this one for French Chicken in a Pot. Clearly not a stew. Also, yum!

So this week, I finally broke down and purchased my first cast iron Dutch oven, along with a copy of Elizabeth Yarnell’s Glorious One-Pot Meals, so that I could have some idea of what to do with it.

I was very excited the day my cookbook and pot arrived.

Mommyo, happily flipping through her new cookbook: “For our first Dutch oven recipe, would you like to have fish, chicken, or something else?”

Daddyo: “Chicken or something else.”

The Seven-Year-Old: “Something else. Something else gets two votes, Mommyo.”

We had the Mediterranean steak. (Yum! Also easy. The hardest part was lifting the full pot.)
