Kitty Stew

For some reason I've had an unusually busy last few days but without much to show for it. In fact, I can't even identify what has been accomplished, but I know I've been doing something!

Since the arrival of furniture, (or at least seating options, not to imply that the house is in any way "furnished") we've gradually been getting back into the entertaining groove we so enjoyed prior to beginning work on making the house baby. So we had guests for dinner last night and had a nice time catching up and sitting down beside friends we've gone way too long without hanging out with. Anyway, for me the food star of the meal which included Tortilla Soup (one of my stand-by's) and Green Chili and Monterey Jack Quesadillas, was a dessert recipe, Pumpkin Bread Pudding. As I explained to Ms. Knit-Whit, it's warm, smushy, spicy carmeley dessert sex, and I know that now for sure because I even dreamed about it last night. And despite the fact that I am rather Republican when it comes to holiday foods, I believe my new lover will be taking the place of pumpkin pie on my Thanksgiving menu.

I also received the most fabulous non-motorycycle related housewarming gift EVER. Coincidentally, it's one of the things that was topping my list of kitchen wants:

I think I can hear you oohing and aahing from here! I'm so exicited to use it, and it's the perfect compliment to the season and my new cooking resolution. Thank you dear friend!

Wow. That is a fab gift.
 
That pot looks fabulous. Wish I could love the Creuset - I know there are devotees. I just need to be able to lift my cookware, y'know?
 
O.K. I admit it. I haven't a clue what that is I'm looking at. Can you explain it to me? Thanks. Your recipes are deee-vine!
 
I have the blue one. I love mine. I want one in red. But I guess that that will mean saving some pennies and heading over to the outlet store. I don't think they are too heavy.
 
Annie--Do you mean the pot or the kitty? LeCruset is a brand of French enameled cast iron cookware. The kitty, well...she's just a crazy shelter mutt that can't keep her nose out of anything :)
 
LOL - Yeah, I thought you might wonder what I meant. Cats I know. Cookware, that's another story. The cat is cute (aren't they all a bit snoopy? You know -- curiosity kills the cat?) but the pot/pan looks beautiful but waaay too heavy for me. I can smell the dinner cooking! :-)
