I saw Julie and Julia a few weeks ago and thought it was great. I loved the past and present switches and how their lives seemed to intertwine across decades. Seeing this movie also increased my passion for cooking. I love to cook. I love to cook things I’ve never cooked before and I love to share food with people. After Ben and I left the theater I was inspired and demanded that we go to the grocery store and get something to make for dinner. There was just no way that a frozen pizza was going to do it for me that night.
Since it was after 6 when the movie got out, we decided to grill steaks and make some quick side dishes. Thank God for the iPhone! Without it I wouldn’t have been able to find this yummy mashed potato recipe on Epi. Salad would have been another easy side, but I opted to make something a little more exciting; sautéed green beans with toasted walnuts.
