A birthday gift for my kitchen....

I splurged on myself....I know, but I did not ask for any Brighton, I just wanted this pot to make fabulous meals in! Yes, a Le Creuset, the 4.5 French oven (dutch oven) but Le Creuset is French...so there you go!
Oh the soups and stews I will be able to master in this pot!

I bought it after taking the British class on making Beef and Ale pies. We used them in class and I just had to have one, plus I got 10% off that day on anything I bought. They are an investment but they will last a couple lifetimes, yes, you have to put them in your will because they will out last you!!

250.00.....ugh!!! But I came home and made my own pies with it!

I wanted to take this class after having eaten the pies in London last year, we ventured to the Sherlock Holmes Pub and they were so delicious!!

Me and my sister in London eating pies!

Cooking the veggies

Ramekins are perfect for pot pies! These are red to match my kitchen,
 and they hold 14 oz. perfect pot pie size!

Must have a six pack of Guinness, one goes in the pies and you must drink one while eating the pie, fabulous!

getting the filling all yummy!

I like ready made pillsbury pie crust, great flavor and so easy!

Heading to the oven...

Goes great with my March tablecloth!

So delicious!

You can take a class at your local Sur LaTable store, just look for British Cooking!
I can probably post the recipe next month when they stop offering the class.....

Happy Birthday to ME!

You know I love Las Vegas! So for my birthday all I wanted was to go play and be a tourist!
We got a room at Red Rock hotel and casino and just played bingo all day and night Saturday and had a wonderful dinner, our room was spectacular!
I got a nice copper bracelet from colleen, flowers from my son and I am making beef and ale pies, British style, and chocolate cake for dessert! What a great birthday!
The view!

Sweet copper!

My flowers, lovely!!

Made a birthday cake!
