It's been so awfully hot here lately that all we do is stay inside. This means I can clean up a bit more (HA!) and go through some cookbooks which have been languishing on the shelf.
The Essential Pepin is a wonderful cookbook covering everything from starters, salads, entrees, desserts and dressing. It came with a CD as well but I've yet to watch a cooking show on it.
The dinner selection this time is Normandy Chicken Fricassee. It looked challenging enough but not too work intensive. Getting everything in place before I started dinner helped. And yes, that is a bottle of cheap brandy there.
We had all the chopping done, herbs sorted and ready to start cooking once we returned home from Loki's walk. Oh my, with a 106 F heat index that was a short walk in the back of the park in the only shaded area available. It's all stovetop cooking so we didn;t heat the house up too much.
Behold the final product. It was delicous and creamy. Served with short grain rice and homemade baguette.
