Brown Rice...

If it's true that you are what you eat.. then I am made out of Diet Coke and Candy and maybe some Salsa (that's the healthy part).. yep. Not so good. But, I have a few favorite healthy things and this is one that I love! And, HOORAY! Costco is now carrying this absolutely awesome rice in bulk so that I can have it in my storage. I really believe that you've got to put stuff you like in your storage and pantry.. or it never gets used.

I've made a couple of mistakes that way, which if you do.. you can make a complete save by donating the stuff you don't love to your local food bank. Maybe it's someone's favorite? You never know.

I told C that this was a major shopping triumph. He didn't really smile as big as I'd hoped or give me a medal or anything so I told him he wasn't excited enough about it.. He said in true Eeyore fashion, "I'm excited on the inside." Hmmm. :)

The Scarlet and the Black...

We watched this movie over the weekend. For some reason C and I had all Nazi movies lined up in the que for Easter weekend. Nice.

Anyway, even though this was a made for TV movie.. it has some incredible performances by Gregory Peck and Christopher Plummer... simply amazing.

"The character of General Max Helm was based entirely on the real life of SS-Obergruppenf├╝hrer Karl Wolff, who served in 1944 as the Supreme SS and Police Leader of Italy. The film was unable to use Wolff's real name, since the SS General was still living in 1981; he died in 1984." Wikipedia

Don't miss this one if you haven't seen it.. or revist it if it's been a few years.

Easter Goop...

I can't help myself. And, I can't take it down until May... then, I'll have to think of some other goopy stuff to put up.
