Julia and Julia

Dinner was simple but perfect.

Anthony grilled a steak, we baked sweet potatoes, and had a simple garden tomato and basil salad.


Just before we left home to go to the movie, it started thundering and pouring….as we were driving, we saw a rainbow.


The movie was fabulous! I’ve always been a fan of cooking shows. I remember watching Julia Child when I was a child. And, when the Food Network premiered in the 90s, I was in love! I think I love watching others cook even more than cooking myself.

Meryl Streep was amazing, as was Amy Adams. I was smiling and laughing out loud through the whole movie. It was a good reminder that we have the power to create the lives we want…but that it isn’t easy and that failure and rejection are part of life. I loved one quote from Julia Child in the movie, something like, “Don’t be afraid…never apologize, no explanations.”

Another quote, “You are the butter to my bread, the breath to my life”….you have to see the movie.

If you love food, you must see this movie. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Have a great night…I need to get myself into bed…early morning again tomorrow. Plus, the love-of-my-life’s birthday is tomorrow…I need to get up even earlier to make him a b-day breakfast!
