I had absolutely no plans to cook anything for New Years. I don’t know why, it just didn’t occur to me. Until a friend of mine called for help on a pork roast she was doing for her family with black-eyed peas and collard greens. She said it was her traditional southern New Years day menu. Well, I was inspired, so I was trying to think up something good to eat when I spied my Christmas gift, Mastering The Art of French Cooking by Julia Child. How about Beef Bourguignon?! I had never made it before, but we had all just watched the new movie, Julie and Julia and it was made in the movie. It had sounded great. So, off I went to the grocery store to get the proper ingredients. It came out better than I could have ever imagined. I tell you, that Julia knows a thing or two about cooking. We wanted to lick our plates it was so good.
