~~~ Julie & Julia ~~~

Finally last night, after many months of wanting to watch the movie Julie & Julia I did… It was based on the true story of Julia Child's start in the cooking profession and is intertwined with blogger Julie Powell's 2002 challenge to cook all the recipes in Child's first book. The culinary legend provides the frustrated office worker with a new recipe for life, the true stories of how Julia Child's life and cookbook inspired fledgling writer Julie Powell to whip up 524 recipes in 365 days. The movie was hilarious and kept me laughing pretty much throughout the movie. It also gave me a whole new vision of Julia Childs whom I already admired as the original food TV host.

I started watching alone since it is what we call a "chick flick', with my honey sitting close by on the computer… He was listening and glancing up every few minute because it had gotten his interest. After about 15 minutes into the movie he came to join me because the movie was so fun to watch! The actors did an excellent job portraying their roles... very believable. Meryl Streep & Stanley Tucci were incredible as Julia and Paul Childs!
We both enjoyed the movie and
if you haven’t seen it… do. It is a good one!

One of my very favorite lines in the movie is when Julia Childs and her husband
Paul are taking about what she likes to do as a hobby while having dinner... He ask her what she likes to do and she says "EAT' "I'm growing right in front of you"

Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!

Well I guess we will have to rent it now. Bridget has seen it but I haven't. If it pulled Ralph from his computer it may pull me from mine. That is were you will find me when the LMN, Hallmark, yada, yada, yada, channels are on.

Stay Safe

You're right Donna, the movie is terrific, and a real keeper. I especially enjoyed Meryl and Stanley's performances.
I watch this film a lot, in my kitchen and I chop away, making a soup, or supper. It's just like having friends in the room by now.

Paulette's watched that movie and liked it. Sorry, it's still a chick flick to me so I skipped it probably for a football game.

Be a sweetie,

I haven't seen that movie but I'd heard that it was good. After reading your review and seeing the trailer, I definitely have to go rent it now:-) Actually, I think I saw it at WalMart for $9.98 yesterday when I brought mom shopping so may just buy it instead. I love Meryl Streep so it's really a surprise to me that I haven't seen this movie yet!! Will let you know when I do:-) xoxo
