So, not in a million years did I expect to own this book. I couldn’t justify spending the money. So without the slightest hint, one of my dearest friends gave me the cookbook for Christmas and now I’m just stinkin’ excited!! Bouef Bourguignon here we go! No way am I going to take on Julie Powell’s challenge which seriously impresses me now that I’ve studied this thing a bit, but I’m thinking I’ll try at least one new recipe a month to feel I’ve “earned” such an amazing gift. Wish me luck! My daughter says all we need to do now are pick up copies of her show.
