Waiting impatiently for Julie & Julia!

I'm almost done reading Julie & Julia, the book by Julie Powell that's based on her blog. I'm exhausted in the morning from staying up late in the night pressing on! I admire her guts and tenacity to cook her way through Mastering the Art of French Cooking. It's something I'd never have the nerve to do myself. I thought for a moment about doing something similar with Martha Stewart's Cookies, and then Martha Stewart's Cupcakes came in the mail from The Good Cook and omigosh, there are recipes in there to die for! Maybe I'll get up the nerve someday. We'll definitely have to try some of them out, as M. has to bake every week for the football player she'll be assigned - another one to fatten up this year, lol.

I cannot WAIT for this movie to come out on August 7th! I know it won't be a literal translation from the book and blog, but it will be close. Close enough to smell the eau de potage parmentier wafting from the movie screen.... yum!!! Love you, Julie!
