Cooking in a Dutch Oven

I have fallen in love with my cast iron skillets and grill pan, so was excited to buy a dutch over (yes, this is what thrills me!). I went to the outlets to buy Le Cruset but they were still out of my price range. I wound up with an Emeril (!) cast iron dutch oven for $34 and it is great. I've braised short ribs and pork roasts in it and it's perfect. That was an outlet price but I bet online you could do as well.

We need a date...suggestions?

Recently went to Craftbar and loved it. Need something with equally good food, grown-up/not stuffy, and not too $$$. Any help so appreciated!

suggestions to go with ragu (brasciole, meatballs, etc.)?

Making some of the Italian feast recipes from this month's Gourmet including this massively meat-y sauce with fettucine. I'm stumped for ideas for sides - caesar salad? We have to travel to bring this to our family's house so have to cook ahead.

red with lobster?

Thanks - that's why I was asking. Just wondering if there was something that might pair well - guess not!

red with lobster?

Any suggestions? We are houseguests in New England this weekend, and know we are having lobster - not sure how it's going to be prepared, probably grilled. All of us love reds but not sure what would be a good pairing.
