Inspired by the movie, Julie & Julia, I attempted Boeuf Bourguignon.  It looked so yummy in the movie, and I guess I was up to a challenge.  Even though the recipe is very long, and it did take 6 hours to make (that's not hands-on hours, just total time), it was simple.
And, according to all family members who ate it (all the Eagles, plus two grandmas), it was the BEST meal they'd ever had....and was worth all the time and money!!!!

The only thing I didn't do was add the mushrooms.  Oh, and I didn't clean up the pot for presentation purposes :)  So, it may not LOOK gourmet, but Oh, did it taste gourmet!!!

Here it is:

If you've ever tried it, let me know how you liked it....or if you've ever made it, what was your experience like?
Bon Appetit!

ooh girl, that does look yummy! I can tell you just by looking at it that I would love it. I am a fan of the beef. :)

Next time you make it, call your neighbor. We'll be part of the taste test focus group. :)

I loved that movie, and actually it kind of motivated me to get more serious about my photography. Funny, isn't that?

I've never had that recipe before, but after watching the movie and hearing from you about it, I'm interested in trying it.

I've had it at La Madeline before and it was my favorite dish. I bet it was yummy homemade!
