August 15 is Julia Child's 100th Birthday - What are you cooking?

August 15th is Julia Child's 100th birthday, and I was thinking it would be fun to celebrate by cooking one of her recipes. Then I got to thinking that it would be cool if lots of Chowhounds did this, and reported back, hopefully with pictures and reviews of the results. Sort of like Dish of the Month....except it could be any Julia Child recipe, and it would all be on the same day! It sounds like the CHOW Test Kitchen will be making something as well, in order to participate.

We just put up a recipe slideshow in honor of her birthday, so there are a bunch of ideas for dishes—mainly for inspiration, since most of the recipes aren't hers. http://www.chow.com/galleries/327/rec...

I'm posting this now in case people want time to check a Julia Child cookbook out of the library! Looking forward to seeing what people make. I think I might try to make a dessert...anyone have any particular favorites?
