So far my week has included the following:
1. Awkward professions of love for coffee cake on live TV.
2. Nervous-eating an entire pan of Chipotle Skillet Mac (also quite awkward).
3. Running my dishwasher 11 times (note that it’s only Wednesday).
4. Purchasing 8 lbs. of Chihuahua cheese.
5. Being silently heckled by a grocery store clerk while purchasing 8 lbs. of Chihuahua cheese. (There was judgment in that ‘Paper or plastic?’ inquiry. I know it.)
6. Signing my first cookbook.
It’s been quite a week so far… let’s celebrate!
I absolutely adore Le Creuset cookware, and you’ll see evidence of that throughout The New Southwest. I carefully cure, cook with, and store my few pieces, and only use them for my favorite cooking projects.
Just look at the photograph above! I wouldn’t choose just any pot to make my cajeta in…
So today, because I think that you’ll get a lot more joy and use out of a piece of Le Creuset cookware than you would a pound of Chihuahua cheese, the fantastic team at my local Le Creuset signature store and I are offering one lucky SB reader the chance to win their very own 2 Qt. Round French Oven in Le Creuset’s gorgeous (and my favorite!) Flame color.
You can enter to win a Le Creuset 2 Qt. Round French Oven PLUS one signed copy of The New Southwest by simply leaving a comment below telling me the very first thing you’d cook in your brand new Le Creuset French Oven. More bonus points (again in my heart only) if that thing involves the flavors of the southwest.
