"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

a movie review

I saw the movie Julie & Julia and really enjoyed it.
The ending wasn't quite what I had expected, but it did leave me salivating over the delicious looking food, wishing there was such a thing as "smell-o-vision," and a strong desire to go out, buy the cookbook, and spend all of my time in the near future cooking.
And, of course, Meryl Streep was brilliant. {as she always is} Her depiction of Julia Child was flawless. Her antics were hysterical, and her accent was nothing short of perfection. She sounded exactly like Julia. Even if you're not interested in seeing this movie, go see it just to watch Meryl's performance; it is seriously that good.

Loved the movie as you know. That smell-o-vision would have been great except maybe in the onion chopping scene. The book is lovely, and the food is delicious.
