Inspired

Inspired.....I'm easily inspired by people who seem to be living my life.....today we (husband & me) watched Julie & Julia, for those of you who might be unfamiliar with the blog turned book, turned movie....a young woman named Julie Powell decides to tackle Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child. She cooks every recipe (over 500) in one year and blogs daily about the project. Needless to say, husband looks straight at me and says "you could've totally done that"! No kidding...Julie Powell beat me to it, that's all!

The major lesson I took away from Julie & Julia is the fact that while both Julie Powell and Julia Child are remarkable, amazing, talented people. They doubted their abilities along the way and it was their supportive partners that kept them from doubting themselves and inspired them to never give up.

I have that amazing support in my partner and just need to embark on my adventure...whatever it may be.

The task at hand is dinner....so I'll contemplate my adventure over Oxtail and Lentil Stew....

Braising on my stove are beef oxtails in white wine and stock with sauteed shallots, garlic and chopped carrot. I added a little salt & pepper, covered the pot and I'm going to let it braise on low heat for about 2 hours.

When the beef oxtail is tender and falling apart, I'll use the braising liquid to cook the lentils, about 2 cups of dried lentils. Then I'll add fresh bok choy at the last minute. Taste for seasoning and we'll have dinner as the sun...make that fog....sets over the icy landscape.

About Me

My photo
Cincinnati, OH, United States
A dedicated foodie, with a passion for the best food. Favorite food crushes include; Cheese, Wine, Breads, Seafood, anything made with eggs, ...there's actually no point in a list, there isn't much out there I don't have a crush on. Transplanted from the Northeast at age 18, a whole new frontier of food was opened up to me. I have fished for Salmon, hunted for mushrooms, cracked open fresh oysters from the sea and devoured them on the spot. Figs, pears, peaches, so many indigenous jewels! I dedicate this BLOG to the endless variety this region provides. My hope is to live here for a very long time & continue to discover and experience it's unique bounty! Alas, my life has now taken me to Cincinnati, OH where the food culture is like none I have ever experienced.
