Friday afternoon stuff

I'm bringing dinner to a friend's house this afternoon. She requested beef stroganoff, which I, of course, have never made.

So I looked at several classic recipes and one kosher one and adapted.

I made a braise of beef stew meat, cut into 1" cubes and browned with two Spanish onions and a pound of mushrooms - 1/2 button, 1/2 baby bella, to which I added the end of a bottle of red wine, pepper, a dash of vinegar, water and bay leaves. Let that simmer until the meat was tender.

I also made a pot of wide noodles, my salmon pasta salad (also her request) and marinated fresh asparagus. I'll take all that to their house before candlelighting, bring the stew to a boil and put it on their blech (in their pot.)

I'll serve it with a spoonful of fake sour cream to mix in - most of the recipes called for the sour creamt o be added lasted minute and this stuff separates.

The salad and the asparagus will be the first course and they're providing dessert. Now I shower and set the lights and, well, go.
