Yes, I did. I can't remember when the last time was that I went to the movies. It's been a long, long time. I saw one, maybe two previews for this one and I knew I had to go see it. So, I asked my neighbor friend to go with me and leaving children and husbands behind, we headed out. Not to get groceries, or to run to the bank. We went out for fun.
The movie? Julie and Julia. It was wonderful. I laughed so very hard at times. I drooled over the food. I dreamed of going to Paris to learn how to chop onions at top speed. It was a very entertaining and fun movie. For those of you who haven't heard of it and don't feel like clicking on the link, the movie follows two women. Julia Child, as she learns to cook in Paris and writes her first cookbook, and Julie Powell, who decided to blog about her adventures making everything in one of Julia Child's cookbooks. Can you see why I'd want to see this?
I am telling you about this for two reasons. Reason number one is because I think you should see the movie (in the theater or on DVD, you pick) and two, because I recently discovered that someone is blogging about her pursuits trying many of the recipes in More With Less, one of my favorite cookbooks. So, follow along with me, if you like, and let Valerie try recipes for us. Note: You will need your own copy of More With Less. She refers to recipes and page numbers instead of writing out the recipes.
Happy viewing and reading, friends!
