Confirmed opinion

Saw Two Towers again via a DVD rental. It confirmed my opinion that I do not want to own the theatrical release, and will wait for the extended edition. I was fuming from Faramir on. Sure do hope the added footage corrects some things that were clearly a result of forced editing.

Am reading D. Preston and L. Child's Thunderhead. I'm about halfway through it, and it is following their tried-and-true formula so far, but there are a few more bits that defy plausibility than usual. I cannot say it's one of their best-crafted works, but I find the subject material quite entertaining.

I am trying to figure out an easy, non-boring potluck recipe for work this coming Friday. I thought about Brunswick stew, but I am not inclined to go to that much trouble. Don't want to do lasagna, and don't want to do anything too expensive. Meatballs also qualify as too much of a PiA. Has to taste great, and be super-easy. Relatively inexpensive and lowfat preferred. I'll come up with something.

*grins* I read it -- that's what inspired me to rent TTT, actually, just to reconfirm that I did not want to own the regular edition. I always read weetolkien! ;)

My sister makes a mean chicken pot pie that cost about $5!

You dump a can of cream of chicken soup in a casseole dish, add a can of water, stir in a bag of frozen peas and carrots (or mixed veggies)a little salt and pepper, and top with a can of flattened out refrigerator cresent rolls. Bake at 350 till its bubbling and the rolls are brown. It's Really yummy, not exactly low fat but high on cheap and easy! It looks like more trouble than it is!

This sounds like it would be excellent . . . if I liked chicken. :D Don't ask me why. I like lamb, turkey, pork, quail, and several other varieties of meat, but I have just never cared much for chicken. I can eat it certain ways, but not other ways, and I generally don't if I have other options. It would figure that I have married a man who loves it. :/

I might cheat for the first time ever at one of these things and pick up something from Costco or Publix. I always make stuff, but I also always feel like I end up having put pearls before swine -- that nobody appreciates what's been provided. We also have had a problem in the past with not everyone contributing like they're supposed to.

Mmmmmm . . . maybe I'll go pick up some of that prepackaged tiramisu. I have had it, and it is really quite good.

Oh man, I bought a box of mini frozen eclairs for Audreys christening. I am lucky I ate one as I was setting out the plate because they were gone in a flash! Similarly, at Scotts going away party I put out some little sara lee (or were they pepridge farms?) cakes and they were gobbled up fast! I don't think people care so much if it's not homemade, so long as it's yummy!
