Password Failure

It's been so long since my last post that I almost forgot my password... hahaha... that's awful news.

Last night my mom and I watched Julie and Julia, which, if you haven't seen it, is about a chef who decides to cook all of Julia Child's recipes (524) from "Mastering the art of French Cooking" within a year and blog about it. Her blog ends up being incredibly successful, leading to her book and eventual movie deal. Harumph. It just made me feel unworthy. Not because I can't cook up a mean dinner 9which I most certainly can) but because I can't get my ass in gear to write this blog more often. And I truly love writing. I also read recently about the virtues of blogging in terms of honing one's writing skills. I agree, but it also made me feel pangs of remorse and a little bit of panic because it was a blogger I enjoy who has decided to take a break from blogging. I need to find a way to make this a quicker, easier and more delightful experience.

I could lay down every excuse there is from kids and marking to reality tv and waxing my legs, but the truth is, it can be a chore. (As can waxing my legs...really.)

So now that I'm on a break and approaching a term with a little less work, I will start to re-assess this blog and what I'm doing with it. Any suggestions as to how I can get back on a role would be appreciated!

My advice may not be what you are looking for, but here are my thoughts. You lead an incredibly busy life! That you manage to blog at all is a feat of extraordinary time management. Yet, you also manage to write with wisdom, honesty and humour, and are leaving a legacy to your kids that will warm their hearts for years to come. Even if you never did another post, this blog stands as a testament to your fierce love of family and of life. Don't beat yourself up when you need a break. When the urge presents itself, and when time allows, then enjoy the process. If that is once a month, then so be it. If it turns out to be once a year, then all the more pleasure for your readers when we are treated to a few more moments in the life of Cristina Herman. P.S. I saw that movie, and enjoyed it, but if I remember correctly, Julie was not coping with the demands of raising children and working full time. In fact, didn't her blog become her job? And, I may be mistaken, but I think that blog has been discontinued. I have a feeling blogs have a rhythm of their own that ebbs and flows in spite of our best intentions and/or desires.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
