Christmas decorations are still strewn about. The lights outside are still glowing, though I promise I'll unplug them before I go to bed. I did thaw the salmon and make a lovely pasta dish for supper. And then I watched Julie & Julia. So much to love! Meryl Streep! Julia Child! Julie Powell! Amy Adams! Food! Butter! Nora Ephron! An unexpected and very touching love story. Cooking and blogging. Writing about cooking. The enormous satisfaction and joy in completing a labor of love. As Paul Child said of Julia, the wife that he held so dear, you are the butter to my bread, the breath to my life. It just doesn't get more delicious than that.
