Virtue 9 - Day 2

RE:  Virtue - Again, today was not a challenge.  I went by my best friend's house, but we hadn't seen each other in almost a month, and so the 45 minutes we spent talking was in no way trifling.

Oh, but what DID I do today?  I'm so glad you asked!  Today I made Julia Child's Bouef Bourguignon.  This, basically, is a fancy beef stew.  It took ALL.FLIPPING.DAY.  I dirtied almost every single dish in the house.  But let me tell you, it was worth it.  Worth it worth it worth it.

How can I describe this flavor to you...hmmm.  It was completely and totally intense-saturated-borderline overwhelming.  I actually ate it with my eyes closed and chewed, which I never do.  In lieu of an illustration - here's a list for you:


1.  A 1972 Camaro, fully restored, preferably black

2.  Sex with George Clooney

Okay, I can't really think of anything else.

If you don't own the cookbook "Mastering the Art of French Cooking," you can Google the recipe.  Do it.  Do it now.  You will not regret it.  If you can't do it tomorrow, call in sick and do it on Monday.
