cooking without julia

This weekend we ventured to the Museum of American History. It's a beautiful space that's recently been rennovated, courtesy of Ralph Lauren. It was kind of weird to see the big Ralph Lauren, Polo logo at a museum, but I guess companies have been funding national museums for a long time. We found Julia Child's kitchen :) We also made a delicious dinner of lemon basil pepper tilapia, Chris' award-winning mashed potatoes, green beans, and a simple salad. YUM!

(remember Julie Powell placing butter at the museum in Julie and Julia?)

**Also, some big news! I will be going to Alabama the first weekend of March to be part of a Civil Rights Pilgrimage. You can read about it here. I am so excited and grateful for the opportunity. I am thinking of doing some blogging for Sojourners about what it's like for a second-generation Korean American to be learning about the Civil Rights movement--a part of U.S. history that I think many like me think is irrelevant to them. I'll be attending with a delegation of members of Congress and House representatives. I hope to get some good interviews, if possible. Your prayers are appreciated.
