aka The Frazzled Mom
After watching Julie & Julia, I felt inspired to try cooking myself. Well, something more challenging than a box of mac n’ cheese. So I chose a dish called “beef bourguignon”. I printed out the recipe, went to the store, and purchased all of the ingredients. Because I’m clueless when it comes to all things alcohol, it took me a bit of research before I finally chose the wine.
Note: I did not cry before, during or after the making of this dish. (see the movie)
It was a long and arduous process, but I’ve gotta say that I loved it in the end. I was exhausted, but beef bourguignon tasted so good! Just look at the picture. Yum! By the way, there is a vegan alternative bourguignon recipe.
Did you know that the recipe calls for a full, entire, bottle of wine? I didn’t!
My family came over and we all enjoyed a nice meal together. So what was so funny about this particular meal? My father-in-law’s comment (because of the amount of wine needed in the recipe):
“It just gets better and better with each helping.” *hic*
