New pot (just bragging)

I've been going in circles around this Mauviel oval braising pot for a long time now. I needed it. But I couldn't afford it. But I knew I had to have it. Finally, I found one on sale for just $150 (don't ask me where, there was only one, and it's mine). Look how shiny it is! It's pure cooper, hand-lined with tin, in the classic tradition of Normandy.

Here, it contains Marin Sun Farms grass-fed top sirloin, braising with white wine, garlic, onion and herbs.

Braised duck leg, chanterelles, roasted tomatoes, pea greens.

I'll be braising a lot now. Ready for the winter.
