It is a well known fact that cooking is not my strong suit. But periodically I do feel guilty about my husband always having to cook so when that happens I start searching all the recipes online to find one that appeals to me. Which means the recipe has to have listed ingredients that I am familiar with, can be cooked in a crock pot or take less than 20 minutes to make and isn’t heavy on carbs because I know my husband wouldn’t eat it.
While searching, I discovered the recipe for Beef Bourguignon. I had no idea what I was thinking. Where do you find pearl onions or cremini mushrooms? I had to google what kind of red wine you use for cooking and I immediately lost interest when the recipe said to chop carrots into 1 inch cubes. And don’t even get me started on fresh herbs. (It said one bay leaf. Did you know they come in packs of 100 and cost a lot? First time I ever seriously thought about stealing a herb leaf from the store).
So here is the finished plate:
I have 99 bay leaves left over if anyone needs one.
