Classic eats and classic flicks
The weekend was a pretty bland one since I'm still recovering. The Mr seems to be over it for the most part which is good. He was kind enough Friday morning when he heard me hacking up a lung to bring me some piping hot tea which really helped my desert like throat. Then when I decided to take a bath, he brought in the tablet with The 1975's playlist on Vevo. What a nugget.
I hope to get there by the weekend and be able to actually taste what I'm eating. I'm told I made a pretty wicked burger and fries...I bet they were good. I bet this was too...
I used a mix of the Mr's favorite cheese, Orne Meadows from Cabot (which we'll never find until we go to Vermont again) and some pepper jack. It did feel good on the throat though between the hot soup and the scratchy bread.
The groceries wait for no one. We were expected to get some ice storm (didn't happen) so we went out Friday night to do Trader Joe's and Target. Then Sunday we did our last grocery store run and stocked up on veggies and such. Since we're going to throw in a few meatless meals here and there, I needed to pick up some extras including a major container of mixed greens for a big salad.
That would be salad greens tossed with TJ's bacon onion vinaigrette, roasted sweet potato, carrot slices, clementine wedges, half a serving of walnuts and an egg. I was skeptical it would be able to keep me full but did about as fair as anything else I eat so that's good. I did need a cup of hot tea later to keep the satiety going but no biggie.
I don't know what the deal is but ever since we got back, I have been friggin' ravenous. It's taken all of my restraint not to stress eat and that's even with a cold for crap I can't even taste. I have GOT to get that under control because I still have 5 vacation pounds to get off me bum.
Last night we watched the cult classic The Warriors. We were WAY too young to see it when it came out. It was heavily cheesy where the gangs were concerned and I still couldn't see Michael Beck as anything but Sonny Malone from Xanadu which I did see back in the day because Olivia Newton John was my girl crush. When the last gang to approach were on skates, I began whistling Xanadu and expected Kira to rush past the thug with her glowy self and sweep Sonny off to Coney Island. I guess I'm glad I can say I've seen it now? It was funny to see Dexter's dad and T-Bird from The Crow in their early days. We rounded out the evening by watching the MLK documentary I told you about yesterday which meant I blew my nose a lot...well, more than normal.
What cult classic movies have you not seen yet?
