Bonjour from Campagne Maison
I finally got to watch IT and what a treat! If you haven't seen IT yet, I highly recommend IT to all you bloggers that love to cook.
Inspired by the movie, I got out my Julia Child & Company recipe book. After perusing all the pages, I will quickly tell you that I have NO inkling to challenge myself to preparing all the recipes it contains. However, not-so-much a fabulous cook, I do love making desserts and found a chocolate mousse dessert cake recipe, "La Gateau Victoire au Chocolat, Mousseline" that I have the ingredients on hand and am going to bake.
Since the movie subtly hinted at Julia's desire to have children, I found this postscript that I thought was worthy of sharing. She says ..."I am all for encouraging children to work productively with their hands. The small rituals, like the clean hands and clean apron before setting to work; the precision of gesture, like leveling off a cupful of flour; the charm of improvisation and making something new; the pride of mastery; and the gratification of offering something one has made--have such value to a child".
Even with adults, I think this still applies. I know I certainly love giving and receiving homemade food items.
Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today. We love having company.
