I did it! I followed through on my first Julia Child recipe–shopping, gathering ingredients, chopping, measuring and mixing. Boeuf Bourguignon, ala Linda Lael Miller. According to Julia, the dish is better after a night in the refrigerator, and it was after eight when the stuff had finished its two-and-a-half hour stint in the oven.
I made a few mistakes, so I’ll be trying this dish again, but I can tell you this: it tastes GREAT and smelled almost as good in the oven. I actually had rainbow trout (yum) for dinner, as BB takes so long, but I’ll be diving in at lunch time today, and we’ll see what the bunkhouse crew thinks. (They lean toward cheeseburgers and the like, but they’re adventurous.)
This blog has not wanted to cooperate with me today–I started it early this am and it would not post. Let’s hope this try is more successful.
I’m writing today. Best of all worlds.
