[Wednesday 8th February]
I was later getting home from work than Chie, and she was kind enough to make a start on cooking before I got back. I wanted to make a sort of red wine stew, which Chie started off for me rather expertly (getting the onions really well caramelised prior to the vin rouge deglazing). I did, however, have to be quite insistent on not putting any daikon in - when I let Chie choose ingredients she is sometimes compelled to make, well, unusual choices. She really seemed quite determined to put daikon (Japanese raddish) in the red wine stew, but I was taking a very contrary position.
In the end it appears she indulged my pickiness as regards ingredients, and there was no daikon... the stew was also rather good. We ate it just with some French bread. Smashing.
