Saturday night – 10/16/10

ted_badger wanted braised beef this week so I built the rest of the menu around that. I’m reasonably happy with the way everything came out.

Menu
Beef Braised in Barolo (recipe from Cook’s Illustrated – pay to view, sorry)
Baked Potatoes with assorted accompaniments
Winter Squash with Herbs (recipe under the cut)
Homemade batards by Ted
