Yesterday I couldn’t say bourguignon…
and today it’s cooking in my crockpot. I started cooking in my teens on Saturdays. My mom and I would bake bread for the week and usually make a pot roast so she didn’t have to cook on Sunday. All the while, we listened to the opera on the radio. Now I’m just a little tired of making the same stuff every month when it’s my turn to cook so I’ve been making a lot of new one-pot meals. Well, it cooks in one pot, but of course I generally dirty half the utensils and pots in the kitchen. Anyway I decided to do something in the crock pot this week. I found Beef Bourguignon and decided to try it. I found three pronunciations.
I call this American: bore-gig-none.
I call this French: boor-geeg-non.
I call this swanky French restaurant speak: bou-zee-no.
Here is the link for the recipe I used. http://www.crock-pot.com/slowcooker-recipe?search=true&rid=3153
I use recipes as a guide. Since we don’t tolerate onions here, we skip them. I added more mushrooms and some worcestershire sauce and when I thicken the sauce, I’ll use cornstarch instead of flour. That’s just my way. I even cleaned up the kitchen so we can just enjoy our meal and relax later.
Earlier today, I washed and dried some rayon challis I bought for some new tops. I added a color catcher and here is the color that ran. I washed it again in Retayne to stop the bleeding.
