I made food today. Lots of food. I'm trying to learn how to cook actual food rather than just baking sweets all the time. Today was the first time I cooked a really large meal. The main dish was, as the title states, braised beef in a sangria and mushroom reduction. The side dishes were corn, macaroni and cheese, rolls, and homemade mashed potatoes. I've never cooked beef outside of hamburger before, so this was a drastic step. It also took almost three hours to make. I think it was worth it though because my friends who came over to eat this feast were pleased with it.
