Peach State says: Is Anyone With Me In The Giant Void?

20140123-131430.jpgI am sitting here watching the movie that inspired my “blogging endeavor”. 

Julie & Julia…one of my favorite movies about two of my favorite things.  Cooking and friends.

As Amy Adams character begins her blog she feels a emptiness that the words that pour out her into her blog fall into the undiscovered-vast-expanse of the deepening internet reality.  “I have felt like that…have you?”  

The pure love of food and sharing it with those closest to you…what would you serve?

Julie is up to the Lobster Thermadore ( forgive the spelling if incorrect!)  “Lobster Killer!”

I laughed so hard when the lid rises, as if the lobsters are working together to escape the “Lobster Killer”, and Julie goes running into the other room!  “Between you and me…I have no room to talk…I have never cooked a whole lobster!”

I remember going to Seattle, with my hubby, to celebrate our anniversary and having this incredible entree called “Steak Oscar”. Cheese, artichokes and crab mixed into a lovely tasty topping for my filet.  Melt in your mouth good!  Some might say better than ________!

“You can put whatever you would like to put in the blank…hehe!”

I had to attempt the delectable mixture at home.  “Success!”.  Reality does tend to enter our existence on a daily basis.  Meltdowns occur, recipes burn, dishes explode all over the kitchen.  “15 second rule!”  Julia said to never apologize if it doesn’t look right…it’s always the way it’s supposed to be!  Silly me…I still apologize!  Perhaps I am more The Pioneer Woman instead of  Julia Childs.  

I guess it is a good thing my hubby likes my creativity!  What is your favorite dish?


Life is a great cup of coffee and a box of dark chocolate!

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.

  1. Not sure I have just one favorite dish. I do love lobster with drawn butter. It definitely is a favorite of mine. When I was 18, just before working for Uncle Sam, I worked at Red Lobster. That was the first time I had tasted lobster. I ordered what they then called rock lobster tails. They were small, like shrimp, but fatter. The plate came with about a dozen of them, drawn butter, and of course the filler sides. I ate them all, but it was a strange taste to my taste buds. At first I wasn’t sure about the taste, but then something funny happened. Funny, as in strange. As the day and night went on, I found myself craving them. It is like I had a perpetual aftertaste that turned from strange, and not exactly pleasant to something wonderful! They were my favorite tasty delight for some time. I haven’t seen them in a long time. Last time I ordered rock lobster tails, I was sent something I didn’t recognized as rock lobster tails. Is it a generic term, or what? Are there different kinds of rock lobster? Oh well, glad I like regular lobster as well. It is so much better when we are on the coast, and it is fresh. That is one reason why hubby and I went to Maine for our 25th anniversary. He asked me what I wanted to do. My reply was that I wanted to go to Maine, and eat lobster, and that I did not want to fly! We took two weeks, driving up the coast, and back down through the mountains. We saw and experienced many things that we had always wanted to see and do. AND…we ate plenty of lobster!
