Books on Toast



I got a copy of the delightful Homemade:The Handmade Help Recipe Book put together by loads of crafty people. Every cent of the $15 goes to those who were affected by the Feb 7 bushfires. I couldn't wait to try something so last night I made the Lentil and Spinach Casserole. Two words: easy and delicious.

I also splurged on Julia Childs Mastering The Art of French Cooking. I think I'm over my head! I really enjoyed reading Julie and Julia by Julie Powell and soon the movie, starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams will be out. Hope it's good.

Meanwhile, I don't think I'll be tackling anything too fancy - maybe I'll try a simple soup. How hard can it be?

But nothing is being cooked right now - not while I have my nose in this book.

Julie and Julia was a fantastic movie! I am quite sure you'll enjoy it - Meryl Streep is just divine, as always.

I'm actually going to be making a quiche for dinner tonight - from the cookbook! With modifications, of course. Wish me luck!!! (fingers crossed here)
