Julie & Julia - the movie

My friend Brooke (Second Time Mommy) and I went to see the movie "Julie and Julia" tonight and it was a great chic flick. Brooke actually was the friend that got me into blogging and so it was the perfect little movie for us to see on our girls night out date. I am so inspired after seeing that movie - what new blogging adventure should I start? - should I write something completely different? - should I take up French cooking?.....Nah but I may try that beef recipe, it looked delicious! At the very least shouldn't I poke my head into that cookbook?

If you are interested in seeing a really good movie with your girlfriends, I would highly recommend this movie. And if you are interested in reading the blog from Julie Powell that was the inspiration behind the movie and book then click here for more. And for you die-hards out that wanted to find the original Julie/Julia Project blog, click here. I love digging through old archives especially when they inspire a blockbuster movie and bestselling book. Oh wait a minute, I just found the real New York Times article that launched Julie from blogger to real writer almost overnight, how exciting is that? The article was written when she had 13 days and 22 recipes left to reach her goal.

Bon Appetit.
