I wish I could say I Have Finished Something (Alert the Media!). But every year as the Jewish New Year holiday of Rosh Hashanah approaches, my in-laws hold a secret meeting in which they vote unanimously that the festive meals (there are several) will be organized by Kay. (They will bring cake.) This gives me the chance to renew my acquaintance with that secular saint and angel, and all-around all-right gal, Julia Child. Much mixing and chopping ensues, during which I look exactly like this picture of Simone Beck:

It’s such a novelty that it’s actually fun. Sauteeing! Braising! Sweating! Panting!
Hurry up and finish something else because people don’t visit us for cooking stories. Also you must model Birch–surely it’s dry by now.
