Bella is a story about a man who has done a terrible and thoughtless thing for which he cannot find redemption. He is haunted by a mistake that has shattered his dreams and left him broken.
In a moment of revelation, he finds a way to help another person who struggles with her own demons and in an act of selfless service begins to find a way back, a way to heal.
Bella is a visually and spiritually moving film. I just cannot recommend it highly enough.

Easy, Healthy & Cheap Eats...

I wanted to make a collection of recipes... not fancy recipes because I'm NOT a cook. These are just going to be easy non-time-consuming recipes and they have to meet 2 other criteria so I don't know if I'll be able to add one every week or not. It has to be pretty healthy and cheap because I like to spend my food budget eating out!
This is my version of Pasta Carbonara
White sauce:
1 tablespoon butter 1 tablespoon flour 1/8 tsp salt 1/8 tsp pepper 3/4 cup milk In a small saucepan melt margarine or butter. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper. Add milk all at once. cook and stir over medium heat till thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 min. more. Makes 3/4 cup ..
Whatever type you like.. cook until done
Also whatever you like. I used sweet petite frozen peas and zucchini and yellow squash chopped up. I put them in a microwave-safe bowl and cook them in the microwave in 1/2 inch water for 4 minutes
Combine everything with 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese.
