Did You Hear What Julia Said?

Yesterday was my first day of practice; a very early morning practice as well. I have to be at the pool at 6:00 AM every morning, which means I get up about 4:45 or so. They Call Me Coach Needless to say, I didn’t really feel much like cooking a big meal, so we just grilled up some sausages, some corn on the cob and I made some potato salad. It was a simple, typical easy-peasy summer meal. But you know I almost always have a backup plan.

I am going to give you some more wise words from Julia Child herself.

“No matter what happens in the kitchen, never apologize.”

I think this may be one thing Julia and I DO NOT have in common. I’ve been cooking since I wee little thing. I used to have a picture of me cooking when i was about 3, but I can’t find it anywhere now.

“If you’re afraid of butter, use cream.”

I definitely like her way of thinking here.

“Always remember: If you’re alone in the kitchen and you drop the lamb, you can always just pick it up. Who’s going to know?”

Stay safe and stay well. “Til next time.
