Now that I have made beef wellington, I am to be married.
HAHAHAHAHA, gotcha. Alone forever, like Batman! I do have a nice coat, though, so that’s something. If you were waiting to see the results of the crowd-source on coats I… also gotcha, and chose none of the above. Instead I got this Burberry check blanket coat which I am pretty sure is more beautiful than God.
So, possibly that will help with the engagement thing. I mean, a cool outfit seemed to help Batman. (I’m using a black belt, because the bow threw me a little, so, even MORE like Batman).
But! A while ago a member of our man panel mentioned beef wellington as a food that will make men propose, so I wanted to make it for is birthday, because I thought that was funny (also, he is someone who runs no risk of proposing to me, nor I to him, so I figured it would just be an experiment in hilarity and not like, the beginning of a terrifying shot-gun marriage).
And then everyone said “beef wellington is hard, and you can barely cook.”
And I said. “Oh.”
So I tried to buy it, and I was pretty consistently told that it was not available until later in the season. I did not know there was beef wellington season, but maybe it is like negroni season. SO I MADE IT MYSELF.
And it really wasn’t that hard. To make beef wellington, this is what you need.
