Bon Appetit!

Not too much quilting but lots of eating and socializing!   Yesterday I invited several women friends over for a post christmas dinner and to watch the movie 'Julie and Julia'.    Of course, I had to cook a Julia Child recipe.....I decided on - what else - Boeuf Bourgignon!!    It took a lot of preparation and a strong constitution on my part because I eat very little meat especially beef.   I borrowed my friend's orange pot (le creuset made in France) and we all laughed when 'Julie' in the movie took her boeuf bourgignon out of the oven in that same pot!   My friends provided the trimmings - appetizers, salad, wine, and dessert.    We had a great gave me a new respect for Julia Child - her apparent wit and eccentricity, her talents, her patience, not to mention her supportive partner.   Of course, Meryl Streep played her to perfection.   And what about young Julie, taking on over 500 recipes in one year......I was exhausted after following just one recipe.

Now down to quilting.....but first New Year's Eve celebrations...

I am so thankful that I have such great women friends in my life.
Happy New Year Everyone!
