I can't believe I haven't shared this with you yet.
Remember when I spent my state income tax refund on a Le Creuset Dutch (whoops, French) oven? Remember how HAPPY I was? Remember how beautiful I thought it was? Remember all the wonderful food I was making in it? Remember how I told myself this is well worth the huge splurge because it will last forever?
I wept….well, not really, but almost. Ernie called Le Creuset and they said to box it up, send it back and they would examine it to see if it was our fault. If not we will get a new one…if it is our fault we can get one at a reduced price…although why I'd want one even at a reduced price if it chipped this soon I don't know. I can't imagine what we could have done….we've babied the little beauty and treated it kindly…no sudden temperature changes…no pouring cold water into a hot pan, etc….wooden utensils….
So I've had to cook….without it. And I miss it SO much…amazing how quickly I had come to depend on it.
We're waiting to hear…it's supposed to take a couple of weeks. I've tried entreating Ernie to call and check on it but he has been unmoved.
