“Artichokes — the lobsters of the vegetable kingdom.”  — Julie Powell

This week, the trailer for Julie & Julia debuted. I’ve been meaning to read Julie Powell’s blog, The Julie/Julia Project (which spawned a book, then the movie), in its entirety for quite a while. And in the second post, I came across the above gem-of-an-observation. Can’t wait to see the movie in August, if not for Meryl’s seemingly spot on portrayal of Julia.
