Earlier when I started moving into this house, I admitted that I had a small problem. I love dutch ovens. Especially bright colorful ones. So much so, that I have four in my house at the moment, and I’m looking to get more. I want them in all of the colors, but for now, I started with ones that will match the general color theme of my kitchen. Teal. I’m not sure when I fell in love with these particular dutch ovens, but it had to be during that time I went to Macy’s and met Martha Stewart. She was such a funny lady, and I really, really love the fact that she could laugh at herself. So, when she encouraged us to look at her dutch ovens instead of the ones that cost upwards of $400 I decided to humor her. Then I became enthralled. I waited, and waited, and almost bought, and waited, and then finally, the Macy’s One Day Sale happened and I basically got both of my dutch ovens for way less than one 8 quart one would cost. Amazing. By the way, this was also the fault of Mimi, who I’m linking up with again for #OurProject52
I love cooking. A lot. Sometimes I wonder why I have to do so much of it, and then I remember I have four children, and a husband, and well, I’m the one that stays home the majority of the days. However, you better believe that I have Mr. Houseful take the reigns on days where he is the work from home dad. One of my biggest solaces is the fact that my cookware is pretty. I present to you the Martha Stewart Teal Dutch Oven. She’s so important (the dutch oven) that her title has to be capitalized all the way across.
Speaking of pretty cookware, I figured that my kitchen accessories should be just as awesome. I love my measuring cups, and below are just a few of the ones that have found their ways into my heart. One was a gift from my good friend Summer from The Dirty Floor Diaries who was paying incredibly close attention to all of the drooling that I’ve been doing on Pinterest. It’s always nice to get those types of thinking about you gifts, right? The whales are what showed up for me right after Christmas, and around the time Mr. Houseful started giving me the side eye about these addictions. It’s okay though. He likes the stuff that I make from using them.
So, do you have any guilty pleasures? Tell me about them below, and maybe think about joining in now, or next week!
