Every year I get together with a group of friends to watch the Academy Awards. I don’t think I have missed a year since I was a child. My family loves movies and the awards shows are always entertaining. My friend Carol and I have thrown several large parties over the years but this year we were in the mood for a smaller, lower key event.
Still, the Oscars call for something special, so I decided to try Beef Bourguignon from Tyler Florence’s Real Kitchen cookbook. Even though the recipe looks daunting once you get it going it cooks on the stove for almost 2 hours. I wanted something I didn’t have to babysit once the show was underway.
My pictures were taken quickly during commercial breaks so I apologize in advance. I served this with mashed potatoes and a Lemon Parmesan Arugula salad. I’ll share that recipe with you later this week.
