Oh yes. Ohhh yes. I made good stuff today. I cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner. My dream day. I think I’m learning quite a bit too. I’m getting to know Julia. I’m getting to grips with French cuisine a bit more too. I made Poached Eggs for breakfast and my friend was the proof that it was good. I made one for her as well and it went quickly and the yolk was runny as you like. I did it in a very different way than usually. I didn’t use a mug to drop it in or drop it into a vortex I just plopped it in and folded the white on top. I cooked it for 4 minutes and it was perfect. But I prefer my standard method of a mug. It produces a more easy and more consistently pretty eggs. I did the second one with my usual technique and it was better.
For lunch I made burgers (not a recipe, sadly). I made them without any recipe (it sounds like a crappy flex but hey) which is cool. I added so much butter it was unreal. I served them with buttered peas and blanched spinach (thank you Mum for growing it). The peas were boiled and then rolled in the pan over a heat to dry them out. Now I long cooked them in butter. Truly splendid. The spinach I boiled and then drained. Simple but effective. All together it created one heck of a meal.
Now the supper. I made a Carbonnade au Boeuf. It was goood. With a Potato Dauphinois. I came back from school and immediately started browning the beef in a searing hot pan. Then I peeled and chopped 2 pounds of onions whilst sobbing (think about their mothers!). I now fried the onions in the meat juices. Then I added the beef into a huge pan and then the onions. I put some stock in and the BEEER. Then I put it in the undoe at one eighty fundo for 2h30, and all will be fine and dandy. I then made my dauphinois by thinly slicing potatoes and putting them in a dish, adding butter, milk and cheese, and slapping that bad boy in the onion for a half hour. This was a good dinner.
Maintenant le soir. J’ai fait une Carbonnade au Boeuf. C’était bon. Avec un Gratin Dauphinois. Je suis rentré de l’école et j’ai direct commencé à faire cuire mon boeuf dans une poêle très très chaude. J’ai ensuite pelé et coupé 1 kilo d’oignons dans les jus. J’ai ajouté le boeuf dans une casserole et j’ai mis les oignons par dessus. Apres j’ai mis un fond et de la BIERE. J’ai ensuite mis au four pendant 2h30 à 180 degrees C et tout sera beau dans le monde. Maintenant le gratin dauphinois. On coupe les patates très fin, on les mets dans un plat et on mets du beurre, du fromage et du lait. Fous au four pendant une demi heure et voila, t’a le meilleur gratin dauphinois au monde. On a bien mangé ce soir.
That was a good day! It was a long post but It was a nice one to write (especially because it was in front of the film Julie and Julia). See you tomorrow!
C’était une bonne journée! C’était long comme post mais c’était sympa à écrire (surtout parce que j’était en train de regarder le film Julie and Julia en plus). À demain!
