Julie & Julia


The other night my parents invited me along to see the movie Julie & Julia because...well, they new David would probably not want to see it. Needless to say, it was super cute. My mom kept giving me these knowing little glances...which was mostly annoying because it was typically when Amy Adams character was having a melt down or being self involved. Really? Really, mom? Is that how you see me? Ok so maybe I can be a little like that but that was mostly premeds. Now I'm a ball of self control.

The movie ended right about dinner time and the thought of my dinner was sooo very unappealing. I was about to head home and make veggie chili nachos, this is so NOT what Julia would have done! After a lot of self pity regarding my unadventurous life, my lack of discipline and therefore lack of career. I sucked it up and made those damn nachos. The meal ended up being delicious, so here's the recipe:

Veggie Chili Nachos
All ingredients from this recipe came from Trader Joes (my one -stop shop)

Preheat oven to 350

Fill a pie pan with tortilla chips

Add in this order:
add 1 can veggie chili
chopped onion
shredded cheddar cheese

Bake until melted

Once out of the oven top with:
Sour cream
Chopped avocado
Diced tomato
Shredded lettuce


In order to feel more at one with the movie and Julia Child I added a bottle of Merlot to the assembly process. I felt much better about my culinary skills!
