Want to win a copy of the Julie & Julia DVD? Leave a comment.
**UPDATE: THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.** What would the Holiday season be without sales, blowouts and giveaways? Well, I’ve got your holiday giveaway right here! December 8th, 2009 marks the release of Julie & Julia on DVD, and (thanks to Sony Pictures) Average Betty is giving a copy away! Simply leave a comment on this post and you are automatically entered to win! But don’t delay… the contest ends on Wednesday, December 9th, 2009 at 9:00 AM PST, when a winner will be drawn randomly and announced here. Good luck, and Bon Appetite!
To continue the celebration of Chef Julia, I made her classic Leek and Potato Soup. With temperatures dropping even here in SoCal, this soup is perfect to enjoy on a chilly winter day. This mild, creamy soup will please even the pickiest palate. You know you want a bowl, so get the recipe here.
