I’ve been out of pocket for a few days noshing my way through Nashville. The food in the city rivals that of New Orleans’ which I’ve always considered the home of the best cuisine in the world. I had to come home when I could no longer zip my favorite jeans.
One of my dreams came true while visiting the city. I purchased my very own Le Creuset (casserole dish) which has been on my wish list for as long as I can remember. I probably wouldn’t have purchased the ridiculously expensive cooking vessel except my son is in the restaurant business in Nashville, and he got a great discount at the Le Creuset store.
Of course, I was also doing my patriotic duty to boost the economy by spending my part of the “stimulous package.” I haven’t received the check yet, but I’m assured that it’s in the mail. ( I guess I also helped the French economy since the cookware is made there.)
