Braised Beef in White Wine; a good day — 7 Comments

  1. This looks delicious! Perfect for a cool fall evening. I agree about the shopping. I haven’t been inside a grocery store months. I do miss going g to some of our smaller, local shops to just browse. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. For me too…it was dark brown sugar for cookies and brownies…it was the only foody thing I could not find a substitute for in Morocco

    • Strange, isn’t it? The French just don’t seem to use it. It’s not even in French gourmet stores. The store I buy it in is an ‘English’ store – all British foods.

    • Cranberries are often tricky for us to get at this time of year – how ironic that the ones you got came from Canada. Generally, what we find come from the north-east coast of the USA. (Hmmm, are all the Canadian cranberries going to France??) And congratulations on getting cranberry beans! Those are my absolute favourites. Although… black eyed peas run in on a very close second.

  3. I can’t seem to comment on the recipe anymore, but just wanted to let you know I’m making your Slow Cooker Honey Soy Chicken today, recipe from 2017. I decided to drag out my slow cooker which I have used about 5 times total. I want to be around to make sure it is still working right, so lockdown is a good time to “be around.” I’ll tell you how it turns out!

  4. To add to bcinfrance, I often have a hard time commenting now as well.

    This recipe is exactly the kind of comfort food we’d love and I too would do it in the oven. I usually do anyway rather than the slow cooker if the recipe calls for browning the meat first. Can’t see dirtying up extra pans.

    I usually buy cranberries when I see them and then just toss them in the freezer. They’ll keep about a year or so and it’s so nice to have ‘fresh’ cranberries rather than canned. Our local big store was really well stocked last Monday when I went. I can imagine what it looked like by Wednesday when our newest ‘lockdown’ started. But the only thing I couldn’t find anywhere it Coke Zero. No, I don’t drink it. It’s hub’s drink of choice. I haven’t had pop in a couple years now. But there is no pop to be found. Any brand, any kind. Must be the new toilet paper…

I love getting your comments; I read them all. I also answer them all - eventually.....
