Beef Bourguignon

If you've seen Julie & Julia you know just what I am up to!
On the last day of school, we were invited over to a dear friends home for a party... games and sledding for the kids and Julie & Julia for us ladies. Oh my did I have a fabulous time! Of course we ate a wonderful Beef Bourguignon and chatted away at just how big God is and how much grace and mercy He extends daily. (Is there anything better than fellowshipping with dear friends over wonderful food ?!) Then came the movie. Oh, how we laughed...It's true you know about butter...It really does make EVERYTHING taste better !! So alas, I think I am a fairly good cook, and I've been just crazy to try Julias recipe..... Reality is... I don't have that much time and I am not that good of a cook. So off to the market for a package of stew mix. It's simmering now. The house smells delightful, and no one will know its not Julias. I will just serve extra butter with the bread!

Let it snow

Let it snow, let snow, let it snow.... Just imagine Dean Martin( for you younger than 40...A really hip singer..)crooning that out. Now why not? It's the day before Christmas Eve, and we Minnnaaaaaaaaaaahsodens have not officially had a blizzard yet this winter. 8-20 inches of snow is what is perdicted, depending on what station you listen to.
Peter was a dear and stocked up on bread, milk, and eggs (in case we need to make french toast) last night at the market. Speaking of which, My dear friend made a heavenly thick cinnamon french toast with real maple syrup this very day. I love french toast. Raisin french toast, Texas toast french toast, english muffin bread french toast you name it. The best french toast I have ever had and will hopefully, have again someday was thick slices of bread with cornflakes on top. So super yummy... Peter and I were at a hotel on Padre Island. Never seen it since.
