December Post :D

My brother actually got mum to go see Star Wars with him, since I refuse to see it again. I don't think she's been in a movie theatre for quite a few years. She's partly deaf, and has mobility issues and finds the seats very uncomfortable. We'll usually do a Marvel movie or other blockbuster DVD catchup over Christmas. This year, it'll be Ant Man.

We're breaking away from having turkey for Xmas dinner for the very first time. I'm going to try my hand at a Beef Wellington, along with roast potatoes and Yorkshire Pudding. And since my brother doesn't eat beef, going to have crab and a lemon risotto as well. Then cranberry pecan pie with honey cranberry sauce for dessert. I think the urge to mix it up stems from this being the first Christmas since my father died. It's distracting to do different things.

I've been experimenting with sourdough, and made sourdough pizza dough last night. The sauce was crushed tomatoes with homemade meatballs and Parmesan and Asiago cheese. Turned out really nice, though I wasn't entirely happy with the crust. Must tinker a bit. Today, I have sourdough bread dough rising. Since it's yeast free, I've been told it can take many hours to rise. Hopefully before I go to bed though!

And I saw this on Facebook: How Ken Burns would tell the story of 'Star Wars'

Cracked me up.

  • Anyone?

    Anyone ever run across a Big Bang Theory/SG1 fic? It occurs to me that Sheldon getting a job working on the Stargate program would be a hoot.

  • Who Knew?

    I've turned my mum into a Big Bang Theory fangirl. I loaned her and my brother my 1st season DVDs, not sure it would be something she'd be into, but…
