a French classic

Heather invited friends over for dinner yesterday and cooked a French classic from a cookbook we received as a wedding gift. I really like her desire to offer hospitality, and her joy and energy in welcoming people. That will be a great gift for those who come for retreats eventually.

She made pot-au-feu, which is basically French pot roast, though boiled instead of roasted (and the broth is served as a soup). The name means "pot on the fire." Somehow, though, I kept mispronouncing it, saying pot-au-fou. Which means, Heather informed me, "pot of the crazy person."
