    Google reminded me that Julia would have been 100 today. She was a lot of fun to watch. I would have loved to have sat at one of her dinners and enjoyed the good food, wine and some good conversation.

    Happy Birthday, Julia !!

    She was one of my first intro's to cooking other than Mom's ( Mom's a great cook !!), but she was wayyyyyy more bold than anything I'd ever seen.

    Until I saw the Galloping Gourmet ;)

    I grabbed an excellent used hardback copy of 1999 1st Edition Julia & Jacques (Pepin) Cooking At Home off Amazon 3 months ago for just under $6,including postage.Can't tell it from a new copy,that's around $40 now for cheapest one. Lots of great stuff in there.Havent tried any of the recipes yet,but will soon.


    Imagine my surprise when after opening to the inside front cover & seeing it was signed by both of them. >>

    Still love the odd day that I can catch a re-run of hers.

    6 or 7 years ago I was going through the Smithsonian Museum of American History on the Mall in DC (again)...I always loved that place. They had recreated Julia Child's kitchen...yes, her actual kitchen filled with her actual "stuff" in a display I'd not seen before. A TV monitor played non-stop reruns of her TV appearances. It was fascinating. Dunno if it's still there...they change some stuff out in those museums from time to time. Rick

    2 years ago or so I was there, and saw it. Had to admire how certain items in her kitchen were bargain brands. Also, had to chuckle that the Garland gas stove she had was the match to the one at our cabin, the one that was voted to be sent to scrap :(

    Not sure how you find the time since one can hardly get through the museum of natural history in just the one lifetime :cool:

    Well, I lived 12 miles due west of the White House for 12 years, so I had lots of opportunities...but I know what you mean. I could get lost for a week in any of them. ;lol

    Yeah. I really like our nation's capitol. It's a beautiful city with some wonderful museums and historical spots. I'd love to spend more time there.
