It makes me so happy to hear that my friends are obsessed with food like me! I find that one food blog we often have in common is Smitten Kitchen. My friend Hilary mentioned to me how great the Mushroom Bourguignon recipe was, and when I looked it up, my mouth started watering pretty much instantly. It looked amazing. With the weather getting colder, it's time for some comfort food!
Fortunately, it was exactly what I thought it would be. I did have to boil the crap out of it at the end to get it to thicken enough - and I think I threw in a little extra flour too - but in the end, it was just unbelievably delicious. I used local mushrooms from the Rutgers Gardens market, which were on the pricey side, plus they took forever to clean and slice, so I may go the route of convenience packaging next time. I used frozen pearl onions (as recommended) to make that part easier as well - they worked out perfectly fine. I thought they tasted good!
We ate these over egg noodles - haven't had those in years! - and again, it was amazing. It actually tastes exactly how the picture looks. It's also filed under "freezer friendly" on the Smitten Kitchen website, so that just makes it all the more attractive to me! I will definitely be making this again, and hopefully saving some for later too.
