Could I bone a duck?

MU and I went to see Julie & Julia on Monday night.

Thoroughly wonderful. I have heard that the book by the same title was a trifle annoying -- perhaps along the same vein as this one -- but the movie is simply delightful. Meryl Streep is an absolute treasure.

And of course, the movie has got me wondering how I would fare doing a similar experiment. Could I cook through the entire Mastering the Art of French Cooking, both volumes?

Could I put a lobster out of its misery?

Would I burn the Boeuf Bourguignon?

Do I crowd my mushrooms?

Could I bone a duck?

Oh, good! I've been wanting to see this movie. I could not bone a duck...don't even think it's something I would try! :)

i'm glad you enjoyed it, too! i know i crowd my mushrooms. i could not kill a lobster, though. my dad boiled lobsters when i was probably 10, and i think i was scarred by the "screams."
