SEA SALT GALLEY KAT

44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE – #8

This next recipe is a standard… classic comfort food… and, of course, an easy fix up for the simplest of galleys… My Mom made it using up leftovers from Sunday’s roast beef dinner. I in turn made it for my kids so my recipe usually included ‘hiding’ lots of veggies in the mix. The classic version uses mainly onions, garlic and sometimes corn. Regardless…add…subtract… the […]

44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE – #5

BLANQUETTE DE VEAU (Creamy veal stew) serves […]
