Coq au Vin Blanc; why I love boot-sucking mud — 12 Comments

  1. Katie dear, He doesn’t have a “long learning curves…he’s a hmm., MAN! And that is how men are. Mighty conquerors who will not accept defeat quickly. I know. I have one just like yours!!!! Where there’s a will, there’s a way. And really, when it comes right down to it, we wouldn’t have it any other way! (except when we KNOW we are right and they are wrong…then I just wish he would accept defeat graciously!)

  2. We recently made Coq au Vin buth the BB’s and it was very tasty but a garish purple colour from the redwine. I think I would love to try this white wine version!!

  3. I have to agree with Cyn!
    Reminds me of my own mud stuck story, which I will save for another time.
    I like the recipe! I wish I could say we were eating something French this weekend, but we are not.

  4. Cyn is oh so right. Reminds me of the time while under construction, David asked me to hold a truss while he was swinging a mallet at it. Guess you know where the mallet landed. They mean well. Coq au Vin is a favorite and a love this version. Thanks.

  5. I don’t this I have actually had coq au vin. hmmm.. I like the sound of yours! 😉
    FYI – I linked to you over on my blog…for an award. 😉

  6. How very posh – I can’t get hold of morels around here and I don’t think my budget would stretch to it right now 😉
    Looks delicious!

  7. In a first moment I thought they were prunes 🙂 I often make chicken with apples, onions and prunes…
    Delicious recipe, I learned about new kind of mushrooms today 🙂

  8. Funny, I just made a red wine coq au vin two weeks ago for the first time, in my crockpot. What timing. And I convinced my daughter to also try it, which she did. I added some sliced carrots and celery for more veggie content, which I’ve also seen in commercial versions. I had enough left over for three more meals, so definitely worth the effort. I’ll have to try this version next time to see what a difference the white wine makes.
    Um, about your driveway. As you don’t have a TV, you probably haven’t seen the wonderful news that it’s supposed to rain all week again. As if we haven’t had enough already to last a lifetime!

  9. Cyn, will not accept defeat… (or directions), but you’re right…. No other way!
    Val, the red wine does give it a rather, uh,interesting hue!
    Mimi, at least he can get himself out of what he gets himself into….
    Penny, of course I know where it landed… But one has to learn to shut up if one wants the work to get done!
    Chris, you must!!! You don’t know what you’re missing.
    Scott, they were dried, of course… the thought or fresh ones makes my mouth water and wallet ache!
    Prunes! Funny, we live right next to the prune capital of France….
    Azurienne, you have a crockpot? Did you buy it here? Or use a transformer?
    Thanks Lucy… The neighbor is actually a winery, which is rather nice… and handy!

  10. My crockpot is apparently one of the original ones. It’s transformed as is half my kitchen, as I’d collected good small appliances before moving over here. Because of that, when we remodeled our kitchen, we put in strategic US outlets. I was pleased with outlet covers I found that matched my French ones really well!

  11. Mon mari has transformers in his shop…. all my small appliances have gone by the wayside….
