Is it time for dinner???




Bodie State Historical Park, California

"I was 32 when I started cooking;
up until then, I just ate."
Julia Child



First, I was looking through a Williams-Sonoma catalogue...
then I checked out some of the recipes mentioned in the catalogue online...
then I started thinking how boring my meals have gotten...
then I started exploring more recipes at WS online...
then I started in on recipes at Epicurious...
then I realized I should post something...
...well... 
with all that cooking on my mind...this one just seemed to fit!!!

Now...I've got to go take a shower and get ready...
we're eating out tonight...


Update!!!  Sooo...I made one of the WS meals tonight...
can't say it was stellar...it was edible...
but it sure didn't look anything like the picture!!!

  4. Thanks for the comment, glad to have you participate in the weekly photo challenge on Facebook. Your photos are wonderful! I would share some of our snow and cold if I could. I have those same chairs in storage in the garage, we used them for years:)

    1. I enjoy cooking...but when TheChief and I were first dating, he asked me..."Would you rather eat in or go out?" I told him there was only one answer to that question...."OUT"!!!

    2. I would eat out three meals a day if I could.

    3. I know what you mean Petrea!!! I much prefer to fix a good dinner than to fuss about lunch or especially breakfast!!!

  8. LOL! Eating out after the first part of the post leading us to think you were about to head to the kitchen and release your inner Julia Child! HAHAHAHA!!!

    In World War II, Julia Child (and her husband) worked for the forerunner of today's CIA.

    1. I loved the movie...Julie and Julia!!! It skirts the issue of Julia working for the CIA...although I believe Julia herself only admitted to working as a secretary

  9. I like to cook and do a fair job at it, but for some reason I'd much rather eat things that others have cooked. Bodie, I've got to get to Bodie...
