    I just bought 200 pouches of vanilla bean tea from Might Leaf Tea. They make great tea, but though I tend to buy their Earl Grey, I got 100 pouches more for the same price ($~50). Hopefully it tastes good cause I'm stuck with them until sometime between February and April.

    What food item did you buy?

    Hmm, the joke didn't come through, but that's ok.

    How do you make bordelaise?

    I r stoopid. That's why I cook.

    I personally don't make bordelaise much. My friend is the bigtimer saucier and the bones are for him. But, in theory, make a rich stock, turn it into espagnole. Sweat some shallot in a pan, deglaze w/ Bordeaux, add herbs, simmer to a syrup, add espagnole, simmer, then add bone marrow. Is kick ass.

    I just bought some 1000 day aged gouda. It's rich, nutty, and surprisingly crunchy at some points.
