A little more than a week ago I had the idea of acquiring a cookbook.  After some research I settled on Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child, et al.  While the book itself is fantastic and packed to the brim with delicious-sounding and extremely simple recipes (buttered calf brains!  aspics galore!), I can't help but feel a little queasy, knowing that this book inspired the film Julie/Julia (2).  I have yet to try anything from it.  My first attempt will be a simple potato leek soup.  Tonight, probably.
