Julie & Julia

I must admit I am currently a little obsessed with the movie Julie & Julia.  Honestly, I watch it practically every day.  I love to cook.  I love to eat.  I love to watch movies.  So, there you go.  The movie inspires me.  It makes me want to set goals for myself, which in turn makes me feel accomplished.  These past few months I have just felt over-whelmed.  I babysit three small children, plus have four kids of my own, plus I am a preschool teacher two days a week.  By the end of the day I have no desire to cook, which makes me very sad.  However, I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! Our last day of preschool was yesterday and in two weeks I will no longer have the extra munchkins that I babysit! No more snotty noses, dirty diapers, continuous screaming and crying or graham crackers crushed all over my house! So, the more I watch Julie & Julia, the more excited I get about the upcoming summer months which will consist of cooking, eating, reading and writing and just being able to enjoy my life!

So, tonight's menu consists of angel hair pasta and the tomato bruschetta from a scene in the movie. My mouth waters for this pan fried garlic bread and heirloom tomato dish every time I watch the movie. So tonight I will attempt to recreate the ridiculously delicious looking appetizer. Wish me luck!

So, for now the only thing left to say is.....

Bon Appetite!
