Julia Child’s Boeuf Bourguignon

I’m a big fan of “bucket lists.” In fact, I have multiple lists.  I have my travel bucket list:  Italy, Spain, Austin.  The list goes on and on.  My largest list is a restaurant bucket list:  Maude in LA is at the very top.  And then there’s my “kitchen” bucket list.  We’ve tackled homemade pasta and ciabatta bread and I really want to take on homemade croissants.  But this past Saturday we checked Julia’s Boeuf Bourguignon off our list.

The recipe takes some time (you’ll need a good 4-5 hours from start to finish) but it’s worth it.  We popped Julie and Julia into the DVD and got to work in the kitchen.  Our house was filled with the most amazing aroma and we were in heaven as we enjoyed each and every bite.  I served our boeuf bourguignon with roasted potatoes and an amazing bottle of red wine.
