Julia Child - “The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook”

bedazzledjewels, Apr 2, 1:55am
Some more pearls of wisdom from Julia -
“It's so beautifully arranged on the plate - you know someone's fingers have been all over it. ”

“In department stores, so much kitchen equipment is bought indiscriminately by people who just come in for men's underwear. ”

“I was 32 when I started cooking; up until then, I just ate. ”

"If life brings you lemons, make lemonade'. .

'Chocolate, coffee, men; some things are just better rich. '

I don't know who they're from. .

Cheese - milk's leap toward immortality.

Save a tree - eat a beaver.

If we are not supposed to eat animals, why are they made of meat?

The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you're hungry again.

Thanks - I copy them all out onto cards and place them in clusters on the walls or in groupson the table when we have a 'bit of a do' or anyone staying or invited for a meal. Makes for some discussion.

rog. e ... It's also quite good fun to see who drops out first in a friendly competition to see who can think of a food idiom which is part of the language - cliches accepted! There are zillions...

The best thing since sliced bread
Out of the frying pan into the fire
He's a bad egg
The proof of the pudding...
I heard it through the grapevine
The apple of my eye
As alike as two peas in a pod
A peachy complexion
It's a plum of a job
left a sour taste
to buy a lemon
rotten to the core
one bad apple

When asked what was for dinner, my mum would always say, "A wigwam for a goose's bridle" or "Bread & scrape & duck under the table". Never really knew where they came from, or for that matter, what they meant. Anyone else heard them?

elliehen, Apr 2, 7:51am
Yes, I have heard the wigwam one. My granny used to say in answer to What's for dinner? - "Lay whole for meddlers and tarts for tasters. "I didn't have a clue what it meant but the "lay whole" bit sounded rather like the wooden spoon...

when asked what was for dinner my friends mum would always say "stewed bugs and onions" - ugghh! My mum would tell us if saw something on our place and didn't know if we should eat it? "when in doubt - leave it out" ... so that meants peas and brussell sprouts were off our menu for good after that! ha!
