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.
