Teaser Tuesdays Jan. 11, 2011

Teaser Tuesdays: A fun weekly meme Hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading where readers share the teasers sentences from their current reads. Tthis week's teaser is from Julie Powell's "Julie & Julia": 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen.

Julie & Julia: Living in tiny apartment. Trapped in job she hates. Julie Powell begins a project called Julie/Julia Project in which she cook every one of the recipes in Julia Child's cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking in a space of just a year.
I couldn't get the first one to flip at all; it just crumpled against the far lip of the pan, cracking up some at the stress points. Julie & Julia, pg. 86
