Lets Get Cookin!
First of all, my new two volume set of Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" arrived yesterday. Fabulous. That's like Calvin's Institutes for the Kitchen. I purchased the set with the gift certificate graciously given me by the Redeemer Ladies Bible Study group - you are wonderful friends!
Favorite quote so far: "Food, like the people who eat it, can be stimulated by wine or spirits. And, as with people, it can also be spoiled." - Childs, Book 1; Ch.1
Secondly, I had to do 'quick and dirty' last night, so I put together some sauteed chicken breast filets stuffed with three cheeses, hugged by some bacon wrapped green beans and an arugula salad. The sauce from the pan 'made' the chicken; amazing what vermouth, butter, a dash of cream, and cooking juices can accomplish!
