Aimee is studying France at school and suggested we have a French themed evening. Robert found two (1 & 2) recipes for Beef Bourguignon and combined them to produce a very tasty stew. This was accompanied by green beans, broccoli and mashed potatoes.
Janice had this recipe pointed out to her by three different people during the week. She decided it was rich and fancy enough to be called a gateaux and therefore was a French dessert. It sure is rich! and very yummy. It was served with whipped cream and some lovely tiny sweet round grapes and the juice and seeds of a pomegranate. It would have looked fabulous with the cream heaped on top and the fruit and pomegranate juice on top of that but one of us does not eat cream and all of us knew we were never going to eat all the cake that night!
Nana and Robert won the second game, Alex and Jennifer won the first.... Grumps didn't win at all that night!
