I’ve been eagerly anticipating going to the opening of Julie & Julia on Friday. I’ve been asking myself what kind of gourmet snacks could you sneak in to the movie? Parmesan Pepper Popcorn, Fleur de Sel Caramels, Spiced Herbed Nuts... I think I could go on and on. Any suggestions? If you haven’t read Julie Powell's blog based book, check it out, lots of fun. It's fascinating how this woman's inspired blog project became such a successful phenomenon, one of the lucky few. And I'm certainly putting Julia's memoir on my summer reading list which I've been meaning to do for a long time. She was an amazing woman who reinvented herself late in life with great happiness and lasting influence.
