Cooking + Foul Language = LOVE

On the way up to KY for our vacay I made Mr. Jetplane listen to the audio book Julie & Julia.

It was a great book, atleast I enjoyed it...and I believe Mr. did alittle bit as well.

I feel for Julie and her desire to find something that inspires her. I'll be honest, I would love to create a challenge for myself like she did and be able to see it through completion. And she has a wonderful sense of humor, albeit is slightly dirty... which I find even more endearing.

One other point worth mentioning is that the book is associated with the blog she created to document her journey through Julia's cookbook. I think this my have given Mr. a look inside why a woman like Julie (or his wife for that matter) started and continues a blog. I hope it let him understand why I enjoy my blog and my readers (or as she calls them, her bleaders).

I recommend this book at any and all of us culinary hopefuls who search for recipes and try to make ourselves better in the kitchen. I would love for my children and grandchildren to remember me the way I do my grandmother... the best cook in the entire world. She could create a wonderful dinner with whatever was in the pantry and we could never get enough.

And as Julia would say.... Bon Appetit!

P.S. I also read Jennifer Weiner's new book last week... review to follow...I enjoyed it but it wasn't my favorite of her books that's for sure...

I'm reading this right now and I love it. I too would love to challenge myself with something like this. I'm just not sure what.

I read this book a few weeks ago. I bet listening to it was hilarious!

I still need to read this book before the movie is out!

I really wanted to read this book before I saw the movie. Maybe I can squeeze it in still!

Oh no, I'm starting Jennifer Weiners new book tonight! I have Julie & Julia on my list next. At least I have something to look forward to...

I have both on my reading list and am thinking about downloading one for our ride to Michigan this weekend. I always have to preview the voice first on iTunes because that can be a deal breaker for me!

Oh and your KY trip looked like a blast-- we used to have a house on KY Lake and we are only hours from Paducah-- I love it!
