A quick post tonight. Just got in and I have an important date with the next episode of Spiral before bed. I have it on good authority (Amy) that it’s going to be a corker.
I’ve been to a free lecture at UEA (University of East Anglia) entitled: Tell Me What You Eat and I’ll Tell You What You Are. It was by a gastroenterologist and discussed the relationship between diet and disease. Very interesting (more on that tomorrow), although it looks like my love affair with peanut butter will have to end. Apparently peanuts contain a fungus which is not good news at all…
Anyway, on to dinner. I’m glad I ate before I went out. We had Beef Bourguignon for tea and it was absolutely delicious, but it would seem that red meat is not good news either.
Putting that aside, beef Bourguignon is a dish of kings, as far as I’m concerned, and one of our favourites. Any food cooked in wine has to taste good. The best beef boug we’ve ever had was on the ferry from Dover to Calais, and we’ve been trying to recreate it ever since. Maybe it was the salty chips that it was served with that made it taste so good? This is what we had ours with tonight.
Here’s the recipe I use, although I haven’t looked at it for many years because I know it off by heart.
If you only do one thing this week, treat yourself to a homemade bowl of this, just take in to account the 3 hours it takes to cook…..
