Julia Child's 100th birthday!

100e Geboortedag Julia Child

How fun to wake up to seeing this header on Google today. It is because Julia Child is 100 years old today. Did you know that her kitchen is at the Smithsonian for all to see? See...I want that kitchen for my own. *grins*

If you want to see more check out the link at the museum and wonder around this creative kitchen yourself online.
My Life in France
In the meantime, maybe I should start reading this book today in honor of Julia or perhaps I will watch the movie Julie & Julia or perhaps I will just pop into my kitchen and be really creative for dinner.....

Bon appetit or eet smakelijk!

Well, I'm sure you will make something just as good as she could in your own very nice kitchen.
I will try to see this if I go to Washington DC again, but have no plans to do that anytime soon.
They still have her shows on from time to time on PBS in reruns.
Happy Cooking
Love Mom

I saw that this am. What a lady! And, what a kitchen. Sure miss her. She was a gem. Thanks for those nice comments, Heidi. I know if you decide to cook in honor of Julia, whatever you make will be delicious. Take care!

I wondered what that Google header was all about, lol.

Great kitchen, have you watched the film Julie and Julia? very entertaining, she was a character, and if that is Julia's voice on the link you gave Meryl Streep did an excellent job in playing her :-)

I saw the google header yesterday and went onto amazon and read a few of the book pages that were available, I found it very entertaining - I loved the film! Thanks for the link to the Museum and the kitchen - what a wonderful place to work in:)

Did you make Beef Bourguignon?! I love the movie, Julie and Julia. One of my favorites. The book wasn't very good though.
