It’s Restaurant Week and have you been eating, praying and loving?


I fell in love with author Elizabeth Gilbert’s book Eat Pray Love when I read it from top to bottom over a year ago. Naturally, I was so excited when I found out that Julia Robert’s would be starring in the movie coming out this August.

And contrary to what the message in the book tells you to explore, I have found myself just too busy and rundown to head to the theatre to watch the movie. I also generally find it to be true that while I may devour and j’adore every detail that the author shares in a novel, the movie usually fizzles and can never hold up to the written word. Example: Dan Brown’s (The Davinci Code and Angels and Demons.) I’m hoping that this will not be the case for Eat Pray Love! In the meantime I’ve looked to good friend and fellow blogger Willie Waffle to share his review of the movie. Wille gave it 2 1/2 waffles.

Willie says, ” Eat Pray Love is one of those movies where you know exactly what you are going to get, kinda like comfort food for your movie going soul.

But don’t worry I’ll be headed out very soon to go see for myself. What did you think of the movie? Did you read the book too?
