I saw the movie Julie and Julia a few days ago. I thought it was good, but it seemed kind of long, and it made me really hungry. The food looked and sounded really good. I really want some of Julia Child’s beef stew. So I got the cookbook from the library and then realized beef’s expensive and so are a lot of those recipes. Not to mention how long the cookbook is. Julie really was determined to go through it and blog about it. Consistent blogging is tough. I would know, considering how often I take breaks. I just got off one. And coming back is always hard.
Julie’s blog was all about how she got through Julia Child’s cookbook. It was actually more of a year long project which attracted a lot of attention. You can check it out here from the beginning if you’re interested. There’s a book too. Seems interesting to me. Now if only I can think of something that interesting.
I don’t know if I’ll make the beef stew. Although beef is cheaper now because of the economy. Fancy restaurants aren’t buying up the good cuts, so I guess now would be a good time to have beef stew. But cheaper is not cheap. Istill have to check about the price, but it looked good in the movie and I like trying new things. It might be worth spending a few extra bucks for.
