Thing Thirteen: A La Julia

Just like having a signature drink, I think that an awesome adult should have a signature dish. And I do - beef stew. There's barley in it, and carrots and celery and potatoes, and Guinness and whiskey. I use beautiful cuts of sirloin. And it's amazing. I once fed it to a dude who literally never ate anything but hamburgers...but he ate my stew, and liked it.

It also takes nine hours to make, and as I'm sure you can imagine, it is not inexpensive.

So what I think I need is a dish that is both mouthwateringly awesome, and is relatively quick and easy to prepare. (Quick and easy vs nine hours. I'm not expecting to pull off Julia Child in twenty minutes.) I need it to be something that basically everyone will be into, so, despite my personal preferences, I'm probably thinking chicken or vegetarian, not fish (I totally love fish). Who has suggestions? Leave 'em in the comments!


  1. Why have I never had this stew???

  2. Because it takes NINE HOURS. Was that part unclear?
