Inspiration is NOT a Road Map
Here is a picture of the now deserted home in which Julia grew up in Pasadena. I think it should be a museum and or cooking school. Wouldn't that be great?
If possible, you MUST get a copy of this wonderful article in the March 2010 issue of DownEast magazine. I remember reading in Julia's book about her love of Maine, but this article really brought it home to me.
Jacques and Julia are a great team. I find their book a never ending source of ideas.
Her autograph??!! Hurrah! I treasure it.
And, here are the edible flowers and salad greens from the containers I planted a month ago. My dear friend Marilyn (from Maine) came over for dinner tonight, and she was stunned by the brilliant colors and fabulous tastes of these homegrown beauties.
Ahhhh, the simple pleasures of gardening and cooking (and entertaining friends).
Remember–––inspiration and then do it your own way.
P.S. Be sure to check Monday, March 15th for my new gardening post on Lowe's Garden Grow Along. Please leave me a comment! I appreciate your input.
