Seldom do we start off a weekend without any plans and, with owning a busy photography business, these weekends are few and far between! Our weekend began with a relaxing Friday evening on the sofa in front of the TV. Yes, sometimes you just have to chill and partake in some channel surfing! We came across the movie Julie & Julia and since Jeff and I both love cooking…. and eating, and we missed the movie while it was showing on the big screen, we decided to watch it. We were both fascinated by all the fabulous meals that were prepared and loved Julia’s accent! “Butter” everything is better with butter and lots of it!
The next day we headed to Barnes and Noble to buy a copy of her culinary classic, “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”. Thumbing through the index, I zoned in on Beef Bourguignon otherwise known as Beef Stew with red wine, bacon, onions and mushrooms. I had Jeff at “Bacon” and we decided to test our mad cooking skills in the kitchen that evening! We were so proud of ourselves – it was nothing short of sensational, especially paired with a Mouton Cadet Bordeaux…AMAZING!!!! I have to say that it was fun to cook together. I just love when you can combine your passions: for us food, wine and photography; and cooking is another art form that inspires us to be greater!
I was intrigued by this book before I saw the movie and now I know why!!
Cheers, Dana & Jeff
