Movies & Dinner...

This fab recipe book hit my desk this week and its a treat for all movie buffs out there. The book title Movie Dinners is as the title suggests recipes from all the great movies, with the odd little twist. Instead of the usual starters, mains & desserts, it's split into The Directors cut (drinks), Shorts (starters) Main Feature, and Sequels (desserts & snacks).
It's a fun book, great for a themes dinner party, or a saturday night in front of a movie!
Talking of movies, here's what's on my viewing list for the autumn/winter.... coming to a cinema near you soon.

  • The Town ~ thriller, starring & directed by Ben Affleck & also starring John Hamm (aka the gorgeous Don Draper from Made Men)
  • Harry Potter & the deathly hallows .. prequel to the fantastic finale... lets hope that it is as good as the book.
  • Life as we know it ~ starring the beautiful Josh Duhamel & Katherine Hiegl, this looks so fun!
  • The American ~ starring George Clooney ( well he couldn't be left off the list could he?)
  • Love & Other Drugs ~ a chick flick treat, which will make you cry & laugh
  • How do you know? ~ Reese Whitherspoon, princess of romcom... a girly indulgent night out.
  • The Kings Speech ~ stella British cast, already being tipped for awards, see's Colin Firth playing King George (father of the current Queen)..........and finally
  • Made in Dagenham ~  everyone in essex who has or knows someone who works at Fords, for an essex girl this is a must! fantastic British film with a great cast, a real romp!
So my movies are sorted, here's my Movie Dinner menu to accompany them:
  • My Directors cut would be a Mint Julep from Gone with the Wind
  • Shorts would be  Blue Soup Bridget Jones style complete with string (ala spaghetti!)
  • Main Feature ~ Boeuf Bourguignon courtesy of Julia & Julia
  • Sequel would be Pecan Pie from Hairspray,
all washed down with Champagne & strawberries ala Pretty women style!..... what would your meals on reels be?
