Belated Birthday Musings


Wednesday was Julia Child's birthday.
She taught me how to cook. Who knew there was an easy and efficient way to chop an onion, julienne a carrot, roll an omelet? Truth be told, I'd never seen or eaten an omelet before opening "Mastering."
One of the many things I loved about Julia was the way she shared credit with Paul. After she signed my copy of "Julia Child & Company," she immediately handed it to him. Nearly 30 years after that evening, looking at this signature page still makes me smile.
August 15: Shouldn't it be a national holiday?

I had no idea you had this or I would have volunteered to HOUSE SIT for you! What a treasure. And she was RIGHT to let him sign it too. And YES, it should be a national holiday!
