I guess for me food and food preparation is mostly fun, I LOVE to try out new recipes, and easily get stifled if I have to make the same old stuff over and over again. By trying new recipes I get to feed my family and my creativity.
Speaking of culinary creativity, I am really looking forward to this movie coming out in August, not only because its about food, but it stars a couple of my favorite actors, Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci, and directed by Nora Ephron.
I hope that this link works for you, if not, you can just utube Julie and Julia trailer. (this is my first attempt at linking a video - apologies if it doesn't work!)
