Cooking Giveaway: 2 Lodge Cast-Iron Dutch Ovens

It’s nearly holiday cooking season and if you read Jodene Shaw’s feature on the Women in Agriculture series, you know I am sharing my favorite Lodge Cast-Iron Dutch Ovens with two fabulous folks this weekend. Not the actual ones in my kitchen that I cook with just about daily. New in the box, just for you, purchased by me from our family owned lumberyard. There’s a 6 quart red one and a 7.5 quart blue one. The enamel coating cooks and cleans beautifully. Both are BIG and ready to host a family gathering or two or fifty. Or if you win and aren’t a cast-iron cook in the kitchen, you have yourself a fantastic gift to share! Enter below with multiple entry options. 

Comment below with an answer to “What is your center of your life?” No wrong answers. My faith and family is the center of my life on the North Dakota prairie. Cooking for them and eating together is a big part of our conversation time together. And let’s be honest? Laundry is also at the center of my life.

Enjoy! I’ll announce winners early Monday morning on my Facebook page.
