Here's Steve studying the cookbook. Gotta read the recipe very carefully!
Anna is an exchange student from Germany who is living with Karen this semester. We have had tons of fun introducing her to American traditions and fun. I'm sure she thinks we're crazy sometimes!
Essentia cooking for me, cookbook and Youtube with video instructions on preparation :)
Karen chopping, Steve browning the meat
Hard at work with little bitty onions
While we waited for it to cook Steve and Anna worked on some math homework
Tada, Boeuf Borganon~ Julia Child style.
Karen hard at work on the mouse, you had to mix it over hot then cold water. What a pain! But TOTALLY worth it, it was so yummy!
I was in charge of melting the chocolate.
And for dessert, Mousseline Au Chocolat
To continue on our great night we introduced Anna to The Sound of Music! She enjoyed it even with Karen and I singing along. It was a fun end to a day full of new experiences in the kitchen. Not sure how much we'll use Mastering the Art of French Cooking but who knows!
