In this country, yes. But in France, traditional Boeuf Bourguignon is considered a casserole, because it's usually made in the oven. Even though we would probably call it a stew here.

Good golly... I am starting to sound like mumu.

I don't think what the French call it is relevant to this discussion. In Danish a dish served in a "kasserolle" is a "kasserolle". Kasserolle is the Danish word for a cooking implement that is either a saucepan or similar. It could be a cauldron.

Out thermometer hit 50! today, so of course we'll be having salad.
Have you tried the McCormick garlic/sea salt in the grinder for seasoning? Market Basket has it. I had a coupon for $1.00 off two. I got this on a whim along with some peppercorns. I love the garlic/sea salt one. I have been using it on everything.

St. Urho is a delusional fictional character created by Richard Mattson, a department store clerk living in Minnesota, in 1956.

No need. I have a grinder that holds pepper corns in once side, coarse salt in the other, and also have a container of Penzeys granulated garlic. The last thing I need is another "blend". If I acquire any more seasonings, I'll have to move all the dishes out of my cupboards!
