This one’s for cooking enthusiasts who understand knitting lingo. . .
This week, Howard and I bought a new enamel cast iron Dutch oven.
Gluten free boeuf bourguignon, here we come!
Julia Child’s original recipe for boeuf bourguignon is very gluten-friendly, by the way. Just substitute gluten-free flour for the small amount of flour in the recipe. It is perfect.
So, lovers of Julia Child as we are, we were excited.
When we got home and inspected it, I noticed a flaw in the enamel on the side that exposes the cast iron underneath. Not good — it will give way to more exposed cast iron over time.
“Oh no,” I said. “It’s flawed. We’re going to have to take it back.”
Howard paused, thought for a minute, then said . . .
“Are you sure this isn’t just a design element?”*
Love to all,
Lee — *PS: For non-knitters out there, I’ll quote from The Secret Language of Knitters by Mary Beth Temple: “Design Elements: noun: Mistakes. As in ‘The fact that one sleeve is five inches longer than the other is not a mistake, it is a design element.'”
Till next time . . .
