"Old age comes on suddenly, and not gradually as is thought." Emily Dickinson
I've been pretty excited about the upcoming release of Julie and Julia, so I was excited to read about a cooking contest to tie in. Part of the fun for me will be to challenge myself to select and prepare a good menu from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and a real plus in our house is that a big, festive meal will be perfect for our wedding anniversary. Just spent the better part of an hour thumbing through recipes and need to start some serious planning.
