3 cups = 1 bottle of wine, who knew?

It's Oscar time, and Mrs. Rye is squeezing a years worth of movies into 3 weeks, she recently watched Julie & Julia, and now I have to make Boeuf Bourguignon, the Julia Child version of course.

What's that have to do with a drinking site?  The recipe calls for 3 cups of red wine, which is ever so slightly less than a bottle of wine.

What's Boeuf Bourguignon?  The best damn pot roast that you've ever had.

There are two things that shocked me about this recipe?  I really can't believe that 3 cups is an entire bottle of wine.  Also, before I saw this movie, I thought Julia Child was French.  Turns out that she just spoke oddly.

My sauce should be finished reducing by now.  Bon Appetit!
