Your top movies look a lot like my top movies, although I love the Keira Knightly version of P&P. I've seen all the versions, and they all have their unique qualities. I just like the score, cinematography, costumes, and general shortness of the new version. Haters gon hate! But I am especially glad you love Amelie, because I love Amelie. A lot.
I totally need the recipes for your favorite home meals... they sound extremely comforting. I could always use some comforting.
I like the Keira Knightley version too! I actually prefer that Darcy to the Colin Firth version, looks wise. And that scene where he helps her into the carriage and the camera focuses on his hand…like he just feels her even after he’s let her go…love it. But we’re talking FAVORITES here…and length beats brevity on this particular issue. (I mean…if I like something – why not have MORE of it?)
I’m seriously such a movie buff…I could watch movies all day long. When I was off on maternity leave with DD1, I went to the movie store so frequently that they knew me by my first name. I’d rent like 10 at a time. These days the movies I tend to watch are more like Stuart Little and Stuart Little II and Lion King. And Stuart Little. Again. Sigh…
I’d give you my recipes, but I SUCK at making a roux, which is like the integral part of potato stew and sausage. The last time I made it, I tried using whole wheat flour and it was just a disaster. So…I can’t give you that recipe, lest it become a total success for you and therefore add to my feelings of inadequacy regarding my general lack of ability to channel my Cajun roux roots.
But as far as the shrimp feta al greque, it’d be a pleasure to share this easy and delicious recipe…
(Honeycrisps are good. Pink ladies are marginally better. AND they’re fun to say.)
