Comments: The Two Jules

One of my sisters promised to send me the movie for christmas. Ha. So, I bought the book which is based on her blog which is still online but hasn't been updated in a long time. Book is great.
My best friend got me a copy of the movie.
I.Love.It. Now, I want to find a bio or autobio of Julia Childs.

Julia's show was amazing. I watched the movie coming home from Korea one time. It was good but no sword!

If only they had included that episode from the cooking show my mom watched. We just had the one tv and mom rules.

I have always loved Julia Child. I have the DVD set of her old show - the first one is just hilarious - she actually wipes her face off with a kitchen towel while cooking because she is sweating. Cracks me up every time I watch it.

I haven't seen the movie - I wasn't sure whether or not I'd like it because I do remember watching the "real Julia". LOL.

Oh and the butter thing... Julia lived to be about 92 years old - I don't think it was a problem for her too much. LOL. I think it's the amount of food eaten and a number of other things rather than the butter itself that is evil.

Personally I use only butter when I want butter and not any fake stuff. So if I do end up with heart disease you can say "I told you so". ;-) However, for most of my cooking I use Olive Oil because - damn it tastes so good.

I L-O-V-E-D it too - but could have done without the Julie part!! More Julia Childs please!

I was also horrified when the very next film I watched after it was "The Lovely Bones" where Stanley played a very creepy pedophile/serial killer. It was literally quite a shock to see the man I had recently fallen in love with in France being so awful! LOL.

I was in love with the Julia Child section of the movie and could have passed on the Julie section. I wanted it to be all about Paul and Julia. I loved them together... it made me laugh and happy.
