Julie & Julia

Tonight was Friday night date night. We watched the movie “Julie & Julia”. I must say that I think my husband may have been a tad bit more excited to see this movie than I. He is the chef in the family and I am …. well, you could say that I tolerate cooking. I find it a necessary task for the survival of our family, but it doesn’t thrill me.
This movie was fantastic. I loved everything about it – minus them saying the “F” word one time. (I really hate when producers stoop that low!)
Did you know that Julia Childs was 6’2″ tall? I didn’t. I can’t imagine the struggle she must have had to find clothing. Anyway, the movie shows us how Julia Childs turns to learning how to cook French cuisine after she moves there with her husband – who works in the American Embassy. In the process she finds new meaning to her life and an incredible passion.
Julie, a modern day woman, decides to recreate all of Julia Child’s French recipes in a one year time frame and blog about them. In the process, she learns valuable life lessons and there are many parallels in their lives.
I recommend this movie. As a tall woman, there were many things she said that I identify with and love the way Julia Childs presented herself with grace and filled her life with happiness. I am even inspired to try French cooking.
And of course, we can home and ordered Julia Child’s cookbook “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” from Amazon.
