My favorite new toy & Coq au Vin

My bf gave gave a Le Creuset dutch oven for my birthday this year. Obviously, I love it. I've been using all the time, partly because it's awesome, and partly because it's too heavy to move away from the stove. Good thing it's my favorite shade of green and I like to look at it.

One of the first dishes I made with my favorite new toy was a version of the French classic, Coq au Vin. Chopped mushrooms, celery, carrots, shallots, garlic, and fresh herbs lend flavor to chicken pieces braised in red wine and chicken broth.

I served it over hot buttered noodles. Yummy!
