Thought I would try and find out more about this blogging phenomenon going on. Saw “Julie and Julia” last night (what a great movie, more on that in a minute) and it introduced me to the power of blogging (watch for my movie next year lol). So here I am.

Well now what do I do, right

Thoughts on “Julie and Julia” – what an interesting story, I never knew what an interesting person Julia Child was, to me she wrote a cook book, that had way too many steps in her recipes for me. Give me cookbooks with those “A meal in 30 minutes with 5 ingredients” type of books. Now I want to become a French cook, have to try the beef bourguignon and move to Paris. I would also like to know how you live to 90 years of age smoking, drinking and eating everything with BUTTER. Julie Powell is a soon to be thirty year old frustrated with her life and decides to set her self a goal, to cook every recipe in Julia Child’s cookbook and write about it on her blog. Not only write about the recipes but also about her personal life, it is amazing how much information we give out about ourselves on the internet. (sounds like a thought for another day). The characters and the actors were great and I would recommend it to everyone. I was surprised at how emotional (wow a real piece of me being exposed here, but not too big) I was during the movie, there were some really moving spots. It’s not just a chick flick, it is really quite interesting.

Well, hey that wasn’t so bad (are we allowed to talk to ourselves on our blogs). I hope so I'm probably the only person going to read this (not likely I'm bound to make the kids read it, poor them)
