I almost have myself talked into getting a fancier Keurig for home...

In case you need some help...

I hear Keurig is the only machine that has the ability to let you use your own coffee. And it has all the bells and whistles to clean it, and to make all different kinds of things.

I was just finding all this out! I'm thinking, once the newness wears off, I'll drink less coffee, because I won't be trying to finish off the pot.

To me, a dutch oven screams; "Baked Beans! I need baked beans!" After that, pot roast, and then, osso bucko, and then, pulled pork, and then, and then, heh, heh. And then along came Jones, Tall thin Jones. Slow walkin' Jones, slow talkin' Jones, along came lonely, lanky Jones.

Osso buco? Holy moly GW, that's a big endeavour! I'll try it out one of these days but I'm going easy on myself to start. Love those ideas though! I'm thinking a pot roast is probably #2 item that will be done in there.

She looks beautiful today. All shiny and softly glowing. I am a bit irked that I work today and can't use her TODAY. Patience patience! Gotta wait til Sunday.

My trusty Visions DO met with a terrible fate yesterday, so today I went out shopping to find a replacement.
What the heck happened to the old one?

I didn't get the porcelain clad. Just a black beauty. And my old one was Visions, which is kind of a pyrex material, but one that you can use on a stove element.

I'd made a DO full of turkey soup and put it outside in the pot. (Big walk in freezer!) I brought it in the house to thaw out so I could have some for lunch and inadvertently put it on an element on the stove that was still hot. Oops. Crack! It cracked in several places. I DID manage to salvage the still frozen soup though. Got a nasty little cut on my jaw though, those freaking pieces were sharp. I'm telling folks I cut myself shaving. LOL!

And I couldn't wait til Sunday to use it. I made turkey a la king in her. LOL. I figure the gravy is good and greasy and will help season it.

I have a brown/amber Visions DO. I used to use it in my old microwave without the turn table to make corned beef. It turned great!! But when that machine died I got a new one with the turn table and the DO filled with water and the beef was to heavy for the turntable to turn.
