Last night I broke in the last un-used piece of Le Creuset and used my french oven to make a corned beef boiled dinner. It was delicious, and I love each and every piece of cookware and it cleans up like a dream and now I am done talking about it, because I am sure you are all done hearing about it. Except, how ’bout these steaks?
So we were eating our Irish dinner and not watching the Big 12 Championship because as it turns out, it is only on ESPN. Just as well I suppose, given the outcome, and had we been watching the game we would have missed out on Celtic Thunder. Which involved 5 men in skirts singing Irish music with horribly cheesy choreography and an audience with an average age of 65, all on public television with a pledge drive interruption every 7 minutes. Devan loved it.
Today I took a break from the quilting to make Devan, who is our little chef, a proper apron. I’m fairly proud of it if I do say so, it came out sooooooooo much better than his Halloween Costume. Straight seams, nothing funny going on. It’s even reversible! His new oven mitts match the back side, but I like the stripes better.
