On Sunday I also stopped by the American History museum to check out the Julia Child kitchen. I've been to the museum several times but I don't think I've ever seen the display, probably because its tucked in a corner of the basement surrounded by a bunch of kid science stuff.
But first I ran into these guys:

Next I thought I'd check out my best friends the first ladies, but...

So on to Julia Child it was. I must admit other than a few PBS episodes in my childhood I didn't know much about Julia Child till I read the book Julie/Julia. Not only did half the book take place in my old Long Island City neighborhood, but it was also pretty enjoyable. The movie provided a bit more of a look into Julia's life and I was intrigued. Not so much about her cooking, but her working for the CIA and living all over and her can do attitude.
I absorbed the exhibit reading every sign (just like my dad taught me).
She was one crazy (in a good way) lady.

|But very well organized (and I just spied the Skippy Peanut Butter I guess we have a few things in common)|
