Sunday was the main day for a large meal with family members arriving to gather around the dining table and enjoy their one day of leisure. It started out with going to early church services, coming home and preparing a large meal (soup to nuts, as we would say). This chore was left to the women of the family while the men sat and visited, read the newspapers, or played Bocce.
ATTENTION ALL COOKS (beginners, intermediates, and experts)! A truly enjoyable movie based on a true story was released this weekend, Julie & Julia, which is well worth seeing, A+. It’s based on the lives of two women, Julia Child a legendary world-renowned chef, author, and television personality and Julie Powell, who wrote the original story.
