Today was spent fixing a dish
from my Julia Child's cookbook.
Mastering The Art of French Cooking.

So, I guess the question is did I?


On the menu: 
Boeuf Bourguignon
Buttered Peas
Roasted Potatoes
Toasted Baguette

Family and friends were here to help celebrate with 
Chocolate Cake

This is the beginning of a 'yumm' meal

Helping with the roasted potatoes

No Candles! So they improvised...

Until Next Time...

Going Bananas

For tomorrows breakfast.. I'm going to make
everyone eat bananas...
The only thing is they are OLD!
What better was to use them than make
Banana bread


Dinner, fresh from the farmers market

 Vegetable beef stew is on tonight's menu.
As stated in my earlier blog we went to the market with
one thing in mind.

After browning the meat and onions.
And after chopping the vegi's

Everything was combined with some stock
And it's been cooking all day long. 

How is it?

Until Next Time...

To Market, To Market

Low and behold the produce we purchased was from our neighbor state...

 The goal, something for dinner.
We left with enough to make vegetable beef stew.
As well As; salsa, fried green tomatoes, and baby dills 

The dinner will be coming SOON!

And the food prep begins...

For Saturdays meal I decided to create some dishes I never
have done before, really.
It all begins with a brisket covered with a lot of herbs.

After a 12 hour chill down, it was place on top of a 
bed of Mesquite Wood chips to smoke for a while.

Onto the next yummy thing. BUTTER for the corn on the cob.
A few spices made this into a Honey Ancho Chili Butter

 Just in the mood for more baking.
Onto dessert. What to do with peaches? Peach Pie

Along with 2 loaves of bread. The pie is done.

Hooked on Julia. I thought it would be a good idea
to have some asparagus to go along with dinner. After watching
how to make hollandaise sauce I thought I would try it.

Awww. and a refreshing drink to go with everything.
Citrus Water.

Until Next Time...
