Generosity

Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will repay him for his deed. Proverbs 19:17

See this book?

I've been on a bit of a Julia Child bender since watching Julie and Julia. I checked out Julia Child's biography from the library and also found this book: From Julia Child's Kitchen. I have fallen in love with it. It is full of notes, explanations, basic instructions, definitions and, oh yeah, RECIPES! I mentioned on Twitter that I was reading it and this sweet lady mentioned that someone had given her a copy and she was going to make a purse from it. My heart stopped. "Nooooo!!!" I screamed. (She assured me that she only uses the cover of books and leaves the guts intact.) She offered me the book. THE BOOK!!! I breathlessly accepted and received it yesterday. I've been walking around reading snatches of it, cradling it like a newborn.

Hopefully, I can get unbusy enough to experiment with some of the recipes. I can practically smell them simmering...

In the meantime, go to Zaties on Etsy and have a look-see. That'll give me time to start some stew.

You are too sweet! I'm glad you're enjoying!!! Much better than sitting in my basement waiting for me to find some funky fabric to match it. ;)

Me too! Well, at least I went to the library and picked up the book, Julie and Julia. Wanted to read it before seeing the movie. Love it!!! If I could cook I'd pick up a copy of a JC cookbook. Awesome that you were able to get the cook book!

Hey girl!
Watcha cookin'? I love Julia's recipes and I miss her so much. Her shows on PBS were one of the best things on t.v. There's nothing like her now. You were fortunate to get here cookbook...now, when am I coming for dinner? Hahaha! Happy Sunday, dear friend!
Hugs, Bebe :)

I think I am the only person on the planet that hasn't seen the movie! But I did read her book, My Life in France, about that period in her life. It was a great read, I recommend it!
