Where’s The Boeuf?

December 17, 2011

Greetings from Louisiana!

We wrapped up all of our Alabama to do’s by the end of the week, and drove over to Shreveport yesterday.  The trip takes 8 hours exactly, from door-to-door…hard to believe that this time last year, we were driving TWENTY hours from Pennsylvania!!  Let me tell ya, after a 20 hour drive, 8 hours doesn’t seem too shabby!

One of the things we got done before leaving for Louisiana?  We ordered nursery furniture!!! Thanks for all of your design advice—I liked hearing what everyone had to say. We’ve decided to keep the gray wall color and decorate with lots of yellows…I think it will be pretty!  We’ve still got a long way to go, but it makes me feel better knowing that the big furniture has been ordered—at least baby will have a place to sleep!

Last night, my mom cooked a delicious homecoming meal for us: boeuf bourguignon, straight from Julia Child’s cookbook:

Served with buttered egg noodles:

and crusty bread!

This meal made me feel like we were right back in France…sigh.

Louisiana will have to do for now.  🙂

Have a great weekend!

    That looks so yummy. I can’t wait to get back to Shreveport. We get there on Christmas Eve and will be there a week. I’m looking forward to all the yummy food I can eat.

    boeuf bourguignon is the ultimate comfort food! I bought her cookbook solely for that recipe. I feel like it’s a classic.
    I love the idea of gray + yellow in the baby’s room. So different than the normal blue & pink which I’ve never been too fond of 🙂

    Yum, looks tasty! I get super bored in long car trips, but yeah 8 hours isn’t that long after 20! Love the gray and yellow together… it will definitely be something different, I’m not a huge fan of an overload of pink for baby girls either 🙂

    Exciting about the nursery and hope you have a great time in Louisiana!

    That meal looks incredible!
    After seeing Julie and Julia, I thought, what a great idea to cook up something of Julia’s..but I looked at the book and got intimidated.
