A tempting New Year’s morsel…

The flamenco guitarist said he’d buy me a soup pot or Dutch oven from Le Creuset as long as I promised to make him soup in it. I’ve coveted one of these things for so long the prospect of being gifted with one prompts me to action.

In the course of looking online for the closet Sur La Table to me, I came across this.

Here’s a place not too far from me that offers basic cooking classes. At prices I can afford. Even more important, at times cleverly scheduled between traffic cycles.  That’s important in Los Angeles.

Hmmm. Cooking classes. Think of the blog fodder.

Then I went back and looked at the Le Creuset page. I suffer so. I want a third of the items here. Especially that red teapot…

If the guitarist loves me like he says, he needs to buy me a set of these, too. So I can make him the promised lamb chops with mint sauce yadda yadda yadda with molten mocha cakes for desert.

Is it likely to turn out? Hell no. But I gots to try, yes?

We have also contemplated the Le Creuset purchase – but we get stuck on which color to get. It really shouldn’t be such a hard decision.
Make me soup!!!

Indeed, the Dutch oven will be yours but I hope and pray you will make one of your renowned soups for me. I suppose I can also show my love for you by presenting you with the heart shaped stoneware Ramekins, and whatever else is on your Sur La Table wishlist. Viva el amor!
