Mango ice cream would be just grand to learn. It has to be ice cream and not sorbet, though.

Oh, I totally agree about Marie Antoinette. I'm actually watching it right now, and I can't get enough of the visuals in this film. Beautiful, beautiful film.

This one is a tough question. I would have to go with the Florida Pie (thank you, Dorie Greenspan!); it combines the taste of lime with coconut. What could be better?

I am in for the Cure, and I think I'm committing myself to a Deep Treatment since I'm moving into an new place. I am from Oklahoma.

Hopefully I will go to the house soon and take better "before" pictures to post on flickr. This weekend's attempt didn't turn out so well...

Sorry for posting a comment twice in a row, but did anyone else know that JULIE & JULIA is being made into a film? I just saw an interview with Amy Adams on television, and she'll be playing Julie while Meryl Streep is playing Julia. I'm pretty excited about this one!

I agree with Victoria E's comment; this is a book that I normally wouldn't have chosen to read, but I'm VERY glad that I did. It was inspiring and had so much personality. It was great experiencing France through the eyes of someone who was excited about life and learning a new culture. The amount of work that she put into writing the cookbooks was incredible; I had no inkling about the effort. Like everyone else, I want to run out to get her cookbooks and bring a taste of France home. I think I will tackle JULIE & JULIA next, though...

I was required to read HOW MY PARENTS LEARNED TO EAT in the 2nd grade and fell in love with it. When I came across a copy of the story years later in a bookstore, I bought it on the spot. The book focuses on a young girl who talks about how her parents, a Japanese woman and an American man, met and learned about each other's culture. I still recommend it today.

Chicken fried chicken topped with white gravy and served with fried okra, corn, mashed potatoes, and dinner rolls with honey. I like big meals when I'm down.

Thanks for the story. It's great to hear about people who follow simply great visions and make a life of it.

Hmmm...these would go great in the study so I can draw diagrams of the brain, arteries, veins, and more to my heart's content.

I thoroughly enjoyed the reading assignment for this week. I understood the excitement about everything little thing in France that Julia experienced because I went through the same thing during my semester abroad in France a couple of years ago. Like Julia, I had to hang bottles of milk out of window during the winter time to keep it chilled since I didn't take to the UV milk very well. The book does make me regret not delving more into French cuisine while I was over there; I loved the pastries, but I couldn't do organ meats like kidneys.

I like her "voice" in the book so far, and it feels as if I'm reading letters she sent to me from France. That's pretty cool because my family and I used to watch her show on PBS when I was a kid.

I'm not a huge fun of stairs, especially after a long day, but these photos of steps around Paris make them seem so romantic. If I kept my home furnishings to a minimum, I wouldn't mind the lack of an elevator. If stairs were my only obstacles to a life in Paris, I would be conditioning my calves on the Stairmaster right now.
