What better way to start this off than for my Mom's Birthday Dinner! January 8th is not only Elvis' Birthday but it is also my fabulous Mom's Birthday. So this past Tuesday, I prepared for her 'Provençal Lamb Daube,' which is a recipe I found in InStyle Magazine's January Issue. I'm a sucker for anything French so I thought I try this recipe by chef Daniel Boulud out.
I found the recipe online to share with all of you, however it is not from InStyle's website even though that's the magazine I found it from!
There are many ingredients that go into this dish, so prepping took up a lot of time but baking it took even longer!
Here's the before picture...
And finally after baking for 2 1/2 hours...
I left out the potatoes and didn't make the garlic grits. We had some kale on the side that I cooked on the stove in some oil and chicken broth and then topped with garlic and parmesan cheese.
I expected this meal to be extremely flavorful due to all the seasonings included in it, but it ended up being too much. There was not one distinguished flavor which did not make this recipe a fan with my tasters!
Hopefully next week's recipe will be better! If you have any to share with me, post them below!
