Eat Around the World Challenge : France
It was fun trying out some new recipes, but unfortunately the sides turned out much better than the main dish. I did find an AMAZING recipe that you'll find below, and I can't wait to make it again and again! It's incredible! Keep reading and see what I came up with!
P.S. I'll be linking up with Anne in her next Pin to Present series! If you want to follow me on Pinterest, click here. The pictures on the left are the pins, and my version is on the right.
The chicken chasseur was very odd- when I made it first, the sauce was really runny and bland. I tried it again the next day with some cheese and rice and it transformed into an incredibly rich, delicious dish! So weird! I'm not sure if I would make it again, but it was great as leftovers!
The carrot salad, however, was so simple and delicious. I decided to get multi-color carrots (which I think taste better, and also look prettier) and used a spiralizer to shred them. It was a great side dish, and I'll be trying this again in the future! I took leftovers for lunch the next day, and it tasted even better. The dressing marinated the carrots and it tasted amazing!
This was AMAZING and definitely the highlight of dinner! I don't have a broiler and forgot bread, but even so this was incredible. I don't typically like French Onion soup, but this one was so rich and decadant. I am in love and will be making this recipe again and again!
The recipe itself was really time consuming, but didn't take much effort. Most of the time I was just waiting for the onions to carmelize or the soup to come together. Highly recommend trying this out!
I hope you enjoyed this little food journey today! This is such a fun resolution and Dan and I have both enjoyed trying new cuisines each month without paying a ton to go to restaurants. Coming up next month is Greece...can't wait!
Linking up with Amanda for thinking out loud Thursday!
