Eat Pray Love

It’s been a while since we had a decent chick flick, so “Eat Pray Love” is overdue. But better late than never. The story, written as a memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert, comes to the silver screen Friday. It brings with it an elixir of food, spirituality and independence that many women have found irresistible. It’s become a lightning rod for issues we all face, but never give ourselves time to work out. Time for the family, time for work, time for ourselves simply don’t all fit into a 24-hour day.

While the story is about a woman who left it all behind for a year, it somehow inspires appreciation for what we have right here at home.

That includes girlfriends.

10 Erie women will gather Saturday night — sans spouses and children — to share ethnic foods from the countries Gilbert visits. After dinner, they’ll all head to the movie at Tinseltown. And after that, the hope is, they’ll all breath a sigh of contentment about how lucky we are to lead our so-called mundane lives.

Join us in celebrating the story here on the Loaves & Dishes blog. Share comments, recipes and connections with other women who feel the way you do.
