Julie and Julia

We loved it! Julie & Julia was heartwarming and funny! Meryl Streep and Amy Adams both were perfect for their parts. Go see it! You'll be in the mood to cook and eat.

I still don't ever see myself deboning a duck but the butter definitely called to me.

I enjoyed the movie also....Meryl was fantastic as always. She is amazing! I was a little surprised at the language...but other than that, I really liked it! I didn't feel like cooking though...eating, NO prob!!

So anxious to see the movie... maybe this week things will slow down enough to take it in... The coconut pie! Killer!, xoxo~Kathy~ @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

Amy said...

It was interesting see a different side of Child's from what I perceived of her and I agree with you about the butter!!

Dawn said...

I'm with you on the duck! Can you imagine back when you not only had to kill your own chicken, you had to pluck it to!

I won't be de-boning any ducks or cooking any lobsters any time soon, but I loved the movie. I know the Julie part is getting a lot of negative feedback from the critics, but I loved both of them ~ Julie & Julia.

Good Morning Stacey... LOVE the butter and now after your great review I will go see the movie... My grandfather was a duck hunter and I was never a fan of duck... LOL

Hi Stacey,
We went last weekend and loved it! I used to watch Julia Child on PBS on Saturday mornings when I lived in California and I was learned to cook as a new bride-
she was very entertaining! I thought Meryl Streep did a fantastic job getting down all her little quirks! We had a good laugh! Now I want to cook beef borg and go to Barnes and Nobles and buy her cookbooks! Have a great Sunday! Miss Bloomers

Hi Stacey,

Glad to hear the good report on Julie and Julia - I am off to see it this afternoon. Thank you for the yummy coconut pie recipe - now that looks like something I can cook - not sure about de-boning a duck!
Have a lovely week.
Blessings,
Erin

My husband and I went to see it Saturday. It was a great movie. I didn't realize she wasn't actually French! Loved the movie and reccomend it for sure!

I'll have to watch this soon!

Brenda Leyland said...

I really enjoyed the movie too! Agreed with you about not deboning a duck but the butter definitely calling!!

When I came back home afterwards I looked to see of the Julie and Julia Project blog was still up. Part of it was.... I had sense of deja vu, because what I was reading sounded so much like Julie in the movie!

You've got a beautiful blog. My first time here I believe!

Liz said...

I'm reading the book now and next Sunday will see the movie. I have only heard wonderful things about it.

Butter ALWAYS speaks to me! I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'm dying to; for some reason, hubby isn't quite as enthusiastic.
