I hope you all had a great weekend. I caught up with some friends, babysat for three wily doggies, and generally laid pretty low and watched a lot of TV. Not the TV you'd imagine though. I watched some classic movies that I hadn't ever seen (aka took advantage of someone's On Demand).

First up, I watched the Seven Year Itch. My first Marilyn Monroe film. I really liked it! I am going to add Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Some Like it Hot to my queue. I also watched Coal Miner's Daughter. It was really good and made me appreciate Loretta Lynn even more. Finally, C and I watched Sweeney Todd. We went to see the play back in October, and had been waiting for the film to come up on my Netflix queue. It was really good. A little gory but otherwise wonderful. Johnny Depp's talent knows no boundaries.

One other point of interest: Last night C and I tried a new dish for dinner. We wanted something we could make and enjoy that night but would also have plenty leftover for some lunches. On a whim, I remembered this recipe I'd seen on a friend's blog. We decided to go for it. We followed Lindsay's recipe for the most part, but we added sausage to the ground beef and used more than the quantities indicated - as in the whole can of Ragu, the whole half pint of sour cream, the whole box of noodles and extra cheese, duh. I just heated up some for my lunch and it was delicious! This will become a repeat dish, I promise - thanks Linds! The best way to serve the dish? With some white wine, french bread and a showing of Paul McCartney: Back in the US.

  1. I'm glad you took liberties with the quantities since I never measure...too much cheese has never really happened. I'm really loving the wine pairing, *sigh. Pregnancy: 9 months of lent.


Oh goody!
