Aspic, lobsters, and a whole lot of butter

It was a great book. I don't know what to take away from it most, however - the thrill of a quirky project such as making all 524 recipes from Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking or simply following a path with passion until you find your way to the end (or a new beginning!). It was inspiring.

Well, aside from the ghastly event where the author and her husband leave butter at the Julia Child exhibit at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History (*museum professionals gasp*).

All in all, a perfect book to finish on this eve of 2008 as we head into a new year full of possibilities...

I have to admit, I was a bit thrown off by the title of your post..."G cooked something with aspic, lobster and butter? Huh?" This sounds like an interesting book though. Happy New Year!

Oh, that would have been really strange, right?! Have a great night and happy 2009!
