Another successful recipe from Bonne Femme – Chicken a la Diable.  DH would have liked it a bit more spicy – I think the devil in the diable was overpromised by me.  When I poured in the wine for this recipe, it set off the smoke alarm – so there was some devil there.  This called for a tablespoon of tomato paste, but at DH’s encouragement I used a lot more, so we got a lot more sauce.  Sometimes cooked tomato sauces don’t taste very good to me, but this one was excellent, of course.

I am getting good at this saute and deglaze thing.  Having a good sized pan helps, definitely.  And this weekend, I can’t wait to cook stuff with my brand new shiny stove.  Up next is braised beef and normandy pork chops.  Woot.

I know this food blogging is horrible – not sure where I am going with it.  I have been such a wretched cook in the past that I am so proud of myself – but still there isn’t any point.  I am going to think about it.  Maybe better pictures, sharing my meal plans, favorite ingredients?  I don’t know… I’ll think about it.  In the meantime, here is another horrible picture of some good food I cooked.  Maybe that is my hook?  Bad pictures of good food I cooked.  Without further comment.  Gosh, I’m pretty sure you would miss this scintillating commentary though?
