While cleaning out my pantry today (yes, I am trying to get caught up on chores at Casita de Trash), I found this book on my cookbook shelf. I had bought it several years ago for resale, but no one wanted it at that time. I had forgotten about stuffing it on the shelf until today. What timing!!! With the new movie, Julie and Julia coming out, I thought I would see if there would be any interest on E-bay for it.~The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook.~Julia Child
Kiddies, I have got to tell you I was shocked at what the book is selling for! Let's just say I will be listing it on E-bay PDQ!!!
I've been a fan of Julia Child's for years beginning with PBS broadcasts. Later, she introduced me to Jacques Pepin and wowie wow wow! They were making classic tuna salad one Saturday morning when she told him in that voice, that yes, tuna in water was healthier, but not if one wanted to taste the tuna! I love that she loved food and all the wonderful tastes to be experienced including that of tuna fish!
I'm looking forward to seeing this movie just to hear Meryl Streep do that voice. It was mesmerizing.
Isn't this the best advice anyone could give all of us. It doesn't matter what your passion is...just do it!
~If you're in a good profession, it's hard to get bored, because you're never finished-there will always be work you haven't done.~Julia Child
With the passion comes the opportunity to make it a profession you will love getting up for each day. Just as Julia did, to take pride in that profession...hone it...fine tune it...until cooking or even junking becomes an art form. Paying close attention to details...presentation...originality...this is what made her unique and will us as well.
When asked what she thought contributed her longevity she replied, "Red meat and wine." It's up to us to decide what will flavor our lives and what will get our hearts to racing and keep them beating. I for one am up for the challenge and I promise Julia, I will be passionate about living and not just existing.
Excuse me y'all while I go look for that can of tuna in oil!
