Happy Birthday!

To ME!!

I know, I know I got my new camera recently and it was supposed to be for all major holidays for the next year! ;-) But I have been wanting a smaller, 3-quart porcelain-coated cast-iron Dutch oven for awhile now and so...I ordered one last week and it came yesterday, just in time for my birthday today! YAY!! I love, love, love my 6-quart porcelain-coated cast-iron Dutch oven but since there is only the two of us, sometimes it is just too big. Anyway, just wanted to show off share my new toy! Farmgirls are SOOO easy to please! LOL!! Here is a picture of my two Dutch ovens together so you can see the difference in size.

Happy New Year everyone! I have so enjoyed visiting your blogs this past year and I really appreciate all the comments you leave me here! Here's to a wonderful New Year in Blogger Land! :)

Happy Birthday, Candy! What a lovely Dutch oven. Such a pretty color. Enjoy your day.

I just used up the last of the lotion I got from you. That was such a lovely giveaway to win. I have the basket in my cabinet, though--and it makes me smile to see it.

I appreciate the comments you leave on my blog, too. It is nice to know that you stopped by and also took the time to say hi.

May 2012 be a great year for you. Happy New Year!

Happy Birthday Candy! Your new fancy, foo foo, dutch oven is too pretty. I am looking forward to seeing the yummy things you make with it. Yeah, we farm girls are pretty easy to please, instead of flowers, give us floral colored kitchen implements are we're smiling. I sure enjoy your blog and all the great recipes and ideas I get from you. I am glad I found your blog and that I count you among my blog friends. May 2012 be the best year so far Candy. Happy New Year!

Happy Birthday Candy!! Funny post today, I have a pork roast in the oven in my 3qt casserole. Mine are Kitchenaid, but the same pretty red. I love them. I saw a 9qt one the other day but I don't think I could lift it full of food :)

When I get a dutch oven it will be the same red color! My birthday was just a couple days I guess I'll be waiting a while, or I will get it for my un-birthday
:-) Happy Birthday! ....and Happy New Year!

Happy Birthday Miss Candy! My Mom asked for the same thing for her b-day last Feb. She LOVES her dutch oven and reminds me often how much she loves it. Happy Cooking!

Thank you and Happy New Year to you too!

Happy birthday and happy new year! I have one of those 3 quart enamel coated cast iron pots and I love it. Yep, farm girls (and wannabe farm girls!) are easy to please. :)

Candy C. said...

Happy New Year to you! I used my new pot last night and it was just the perfect size! :)

BettyWestern said...

She's a beaut! Happy Birthday from here too. I just worked out today what you guys call a Dutch Oven - and I've had one all along! I thought it was a special pot for cooking outdoors, duh! I guess it used to be. Anyhoo, mine has last night's leftover chilli in it, so no photo's from me, plus it's in a very beaten up state. But I just read Posy Get's Cosy and she's linked to a new bread recipe that you bake in the DO, so I have a batch of dough fermenting in the airing cupboard and tomorrow, it's bread baking time!

Happy New Year to you & yours too. X. BW

Candy C. said...

Thanks! I have seen recipes for baking bread in the Dutch Oven but haven't tried it yet.

How do you like the lodge cookware?

Candy C. said...

I LOVE the Lodge cookware! I've had the big one for several years now and it is great! I got them both from Wal-Mart, the small one I had to order with site-to-store free shipping, at a fraction of the cost of the "other" brands at places like Bed, Bath & Beyond.
