Time for a Movie ~ Julie & Julia
Of course, like any movie today, there are parts that they could have left out. Parts that would allow this movie to be more appropriate for the younger crowd. I did enjoy it and found myself laughing hysterically when she cooked the lobsters. My husband laughed when she had her break down - as he has seen me during a cooking moment as well. It was very realistic, funny, and inspiring if you love to cook.
In fact, I went to the library and checked out the very same cookbook they use in the movie. There are so many recipes that I can use with veggies from my garden. Cucumber recipes, Eggplant recipes, and lots more.
Our local newspaper tends to rate all movie reviews with a poor review. I think they gave this one a 2 1/2 star rating (out of 5). It definitely deserves a higher rating.
Yesterday, while my husband was grocery shopping, he pushed his cart past the lobster tank. He told me he almost came home with a few of them to cook. I found this very funny! I have never cooked lobster so this movie may have started something in our house.
