One of the most quintessential dishes in all of France is Coq Au Vin - a chicken dish cooked with red wine, lardons, onions, and a bunch of other stuff. Since sunday dinner has always been important to my mom - and hitting a stand for a crepe or a sandwich just wouldn't be proper for a Sunday.
Mom has been a bit under the weather (didn't want to go anywhere other than church today), so while she was in church, we got all the ingredients for a proper french sunday dinner. Our rest day at home and our attempt to make Julia Child's Coq au Vin was definitely a success - and delicious! Mom almost ruined her appetite by eating meat snacks she brought in her suitcase from home (you can see why I love her), and even though it took a while after her sunday nap - she had a really nice afternoon..
I'd say their Julia Child impersonations aren't award winning, but going through a recipe and making Sunday dinner definitely was fun for her - you should try making it at home!
After dinner we settled in and watched La Vie en Rose just to make our day even MORE French than it already was...
