Labor Day Weekend and Julia Child
Inspired by the movie Julie & Julia, I picked up copies of "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" and "My Life in France" over Labor Day weekend. While "My Life in France" was devoured over a period of 4 hours on the beach, I haven't had the culinary courage to attempt any of her recipes. Plus who has the time to cook for five hours straight? Oh, yes... I do. Unemployment will make cooking, and this blog the main course of my day. And perhaps a few job applications here and there. Until that streak is over, I have a couple of cookbooks, I want to get through.
There is nothing like sitting on the beach in flat sand with a new book. It was pretty warm Labor Day weekend and lucky for me there weren't a ton of noisy people on the beach, just a few families and their dogs.
