Channeling Julie & Julia

I have been watching a lot of movies lately!
I watched:
Up - Too cute for words and completely made me cry. I might have to purchase it.

Paper Heart — It was OK. My life isn't better or worst for having seen it, although I doubt I'd watch it again.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince — I forgot, this was probably my least favorite Harry Potter book and I can't say that the movie changed that opinion. But it's Harry Potter and I can't help put get all into it. Cause…it's Harry Potter.

And Most recently Julie & Julia — I didn't read the book, but I think I might and I liked the movie. I mean, Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada was a great appetizer to this one). Although I have NO desire to see him in The Lovely Bones-can't watch him play that character (I did read that book and The Devil wears Prada). I have been a fan for a long time, the first think I remember seeing him in was when he played Death—Name that movie and I'll send you a Christmas present!

OK I'm off topic.

Cooking!

Last night I made quiche well I guess techniquely it's a pie (according to the website).
Italian Spinach Sausage Pie
Here are the shots.

Look at how thick that is! I don't know if you can tell, but my spoon is standing up on it's own. I have never made a quiche that is that thick! It's GREAT to work with. I will probably use it this recipe as a base for the next quiche I make cause that's a whole lot easier to get into a pie crust then something soupie.

And I also got to use my Pampered Chef pie dish- I've never used it..It's it pretty!
As usual I always do a little something to the recipe. I did not use all the spinach, probably 1.5-1.75 packages of spinach instead of the full 2. I also NEVER really measure the salt/pepper/garlic/ etc… so there's that. And I opted to not put the top layer of crust on the top. Instead about 1/2 way though I covered it with aluminum foil. However, I did follow the directions that told me to brush (with my fingers cause I don't have a brush) the edges with an egg yolk and water mixture.

Isn't it beautiful! Even Chris said it was. He told me to take a picture-which I had already done.

And today he told me (Again) how good it was and said that it should go onto the Chris's favorites list. :)

Tonight, I'm making Pulled pork. I'll let you know how it turns out. I mean, how could it go wrong, it's in the crockpot!
