The French Chef

In honor of Julia Child, I'll be attempting this chocolate mousse tonight. "The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook" --Julia Child. Of course, when I think of Julia, I think of this: juliasnl.jpg

If you are worried about eating raw eggs, wash them thoroughly with sudsy water and dry them - before cracking them open.

Any bacteria in eggs is usually on the shell not the inside. They contaminate after cracking.

Ah yes, where she first taught us how to prepare the dill dough.

Save the liver.

"Oh, now I've done it, I've cut the dickens out of my finger!"

When I worked at a PBS station, I never got to meet Julia Child. However, I did meet Red Green. He took a bunch of large breadloaves and used duct tape to make a duck blind out of them.

I don't think Julia could have accomplished that.

The all time classic takeoff of her.

She was a remarkable woman. How many people can honestly say they changed the habits of an entire nation?

And working as a spook in WWII India, too?!

A pretty accomplished life.

Mmmm, steak, I'm grilling it tonight!

I remember her bad mouthing jar mayonnaise and showing how easy it is to make in a blender. But it still takes me more time to dig out the blender from the cupboard, set it make, make the mayonnaise, take apart the blender, wash it, put it away, so in making a sandwich I commit the blasphemy of reaching into the frig for the Best Foods (Hellman's for you on the east coast).

LOVE the SNL skit...and I heard Julia loved it too.

argh... "set it up"

I think of the PBS Olympics skit put on by SCTV. I think John Candy was Julia Child. Anyway, she was beating the crap out of Mr. Rogers (played by Martin Short) until Mr. Rogers pulled out the King Friday puppet (complete with sceptre) and clocked her over the head with it.

I think of the movie "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead." Good early 90s flick.

Darleen, what you need to do is make a batch of mayonnaise, with plenty of garlic, and put it in a jar in the fridge for when you make a sandwich.

It wouldn't be worth my time to light coals for the grill for a chicken breast for monday's lunch. It makes plenty of sense to set up plenty of charcoal and grill our meat for the week.

Damn you, triticale... I'm drooling all over the keyboard..

BTW, watch out for tribbles. ;-)

No shit interview question:
Interviewer:"What your idea of the perfect meal?"

Ms. Child: "Red meat...and a bottle of gin."

My kind of gal.
RIP, Julia. Thanks.

A double tribute post: both for Julia Childs and for when Dan Akroyd was funny.

YES! All I can hear is, "A little more sherry for the cook."

Another sad loss.

heavy sigh

but I agree on the SNL skit...

"it's a prop!"
