"Julie and Julia" Theme Dinner Party

Homage to Julia Child Hawaii style







Sorta like Lays potato chip, Can't eat just one.



Electa's Ratatouille
My favorite.


Electa's Paelle
Her own secret recipe. Delish!


Yummy Cheese Fruit Spread





Can you taste it? I'm like the Pavlov dogs...I'm salivating.
Yes, it was that good. I had 3. Eek!
I was glowing like the fluorescent "OPEN" sign in the front of the Liquor Store window.



Jimmy with his version of Julia's Vichyssoise Soup with Asparagus



Can you smell the goodness?



Diane's French style Salad...Yummmy!







This is one Delicious Cake!

Last month, Jimmy and I were fortunate to be invited to another one of my BFF Laurie's Dinner shindigs. But this time with a real theme....Julie and Julia movie. We had to create a dish from Julia Child's cookbook.

Food...we had too much wonderful goodness to choose from. From the Lychee martinis, the Wine overflowing, to the cheese spread, to the Bruschetta with local tomatoes, to the Beef Beef Bourguignon, to the Vichyssoise Soup, to Paelle (not Julia's recipe but who cares), Ratatouille (not Julia's recipe but to die for), the French Salad, and the OMG Chocolate Cake. I was stuffed. We were Stuffed. Who cares! We were loving it.

Okay Laurie, When's the next party?
