I'm right in the middle of watching Julie and Julia; it's a movie I didn't expect to enjoy, but it's pretty good.
I can't believe people make such complicated dishes, though. It reminds me of Meesha's latest post explaining how to make gefilte fish. No way am I going to go to all that trouble for any recipe; it makes me tired just to read it. As much as I love his borscht, I'm not doing the fish.
There's one thing I would love to learn to cook, though: an omelet.
When Cliff and I go out to eat breakfast, I always order an omelet, a fully loaded one with mushrooms and bits of ham and lots of cheese and onions and peppers... the works. I order that because I can't make an omelet myself.
I've watched Youtube videos and I've consulted Professor Google; I've sneaked around the kitchen when there's nobody here to see my failures, trying to make an omelet. They always end up as scrambled eggs.
And now I'm watching some lady waltz through Julia Childs' cookbook as though there's nothing to it.
I give up.
