Dinner and a Movie

Decisions. Decisions.

What to make for dinner?  What movie to watch tonight?  Which email to read first?  Which bottle of wine to open?  Which section of Williams-Sonoma do I start at first?

Let’s just focus on the first two for now but in case you’re wondering on the rest…

The oldest, the Sauvignon Blanc, and the clearance section.

I’m a straight up movie junkie of all sorts; action, drama, rom-com, documentary, kid movies, classics, psychological thrillers (NOT slasher thrillers!), etc.

Sometimes I can’t remember what I walked into a room for, but I can recite most lines to my favorite films and rattle off the actors’ names like it’s my job.

At the ripe age of 12 I could recite the entire script Steel Magnolias–still can.

I’m constantly picking movies to watch and thinking up what to nosh on.  Sometimes it’s food mentioned or eaten in the movie and other times the region or time period inspires me.  Either way, it’s a blend of two of my favorites–food and film.

Starting a week from today, I’m kicking off a new monthly series where I pair a favorite film with a recipe or two.  Since I love sharing what I love, I’ll also give away a DVD of the movie and occasionally a little something extra too.

The first film is one of my favorites, naturally, and perfect for summer.  Curious?  Come back Friday to find out!

I was watching Jurassic Park as I was writing this post.

“God creates dinosaurs.  God destroys dinosaurs.  God creates man.  Man destroys God.  Man creates dinosaurs.”

Dinosaurs eat man.  Woman inherits the earth.”
