dinner and a movie

It's a rare thing to venture out to the movies with just one child. Maggie and I treated ourselves to watching Julie & Julia on Friday. She is 14 and loves to cook and I like to blog. Could there have been a better movie for the two of us? We both really enjoyed it. I am happy to recommend you see it but I will warn you about three things first...

1. Maggie was the youngest person in the theater.
2. I was the second youngest.
3. Out of the 50 or so people there I would guess 1 in 4 was snoring. The woman sitting next to Maggie was snoring the loudest. Like the kind of snoring you do when you're fake snoring for your kids.
If you have seen it, did you like it?

Tonight we made French Bread Pizza. I thought I would share this as more an idea than a recipe, it's easy to make and assemble in the morning while the day isn't too hot...then just bake it in the evening.

I made ours by sauteing mushrooms, garlic and spinach putting them atop whole wheat french loaves topped with pizza sauce (easy to make) then topping it with fat free mozzarella and a little cheddar, turkey pepperoni and a bit of feta. On the middle one I used a chopped pineapple. It's better than takeout unless you live in NYC and have a gourmet pizza place around the block that serves a thin crusted salmon and caper pizza. Then when it comes to dinner you are luckier than everyone else in the whole wide world.

The picture just uploaded and it looks rather bad--all grainy and home ec like.

What if you go see the movie and think it's boring and come home to make these pizzas and you get an upset stomach? Boy, that would be just terrible.

In response to your Friday's entry, I think at least one of the old houses is on Windham St., and I suspect the others are in the "hill" section of Willi.
