What’s for dinner tonight? Julia Childs’ steak au poivre. Bon appétit!


See, if we were living in France, my kids wouldn’t be hungry for dinner at 6:00.  We wouldn’t be having dinner until at least 7 or 7:30.  BUT, they wouldn’t go to bed at 7:30 either!  So it’s a trade off.  Hectic around here at 5:00 trying to figure out what to cook for dinner but so worth it when Maman et Papa have adult time in the evening.

So, dinner.  What’s it gonna be?  We made a lavish trip to Whole Foods this weekend so the frigo is plein à craquer.

I’ve just about psyched myself into preparing “Steak au Poivre” à la Julia Child. Pretty sure we’ve got everything it takes.  Sure would taste great with some homemade freedom fries but I used all of the patates last night.  Will have to make do with a ratatouille….NEVER a bad choice.  Unless I decide to sauté some ‘shrooms instead.  Yes, that’s it.  A sauté of mushrooms and a full-bodied red are a fine match!  Bon appétit!

….hours later….. Ok so I decided to go with the ratatouille.  Mushrooms disappeared somewhere.  Set the table in the backyard.  Gotta enjoy these cool St. Louis nights while we can.  Soon the mosquitos will attack.
