Julia did it. And now so do I.

I learned today that Julia and Jacques reruns [yes, my friend Julia Child] air on PBS [yes, I'll be tuning in provided I can find it online], but I especially loved the accompanying commentary:

"It’s really amusing to tune in to Julia & Jacques on PBS... You pick up a lot of tips doing it. I watched an episode before the holidays and Julia was making a crust for a chicken pot pie. To flatten the crust quickly, she first took the rolling pin and slammed it down into the crust numerous times, before starting to roll it out. I would have thought this was a huge crust no-no (wouldn’t this count as overworking it?),
but Julia did it. And now so do I."

I think that last bit should be my own mantra -
Julia did it. And now so do I.

  1. A great mantra from a great lady. BTW, I ended up getting my ticket from 22-27th. Hope I can see you!

  2. Excellent. Perhaps we should "cook up a storm" to celebrate? Now if only my kitchen weren't pea-sized (sigh)
