Do you ever plan a special meal around a TV event? My Mom always celebrated New Year's Eve and the Academy Awards with special snacks for she and Dad.There would sit...an old couple with their snack trays and food...watching the special show. Even the Super Bowl...though she wasn't a football fan. I am in the process of doing the same for Joe and I tonight. I am making stuffed mushrooms and vegetable crudites with homemade ranch dressing. We had these mushrooms, when we went out to eat the last time and I am trying to duplicate the recipe. They were stuffed with a breading mixture and a hot sausage with cheese melted on top. If they are good, I will post the recipe tomorrow.
Tonight is the night for the Academy Awards. We haven't seen most of the pictures, but will rent them in DVD when they come out. Isn't it wonderful that we can watch first rate movies without leaving the comfort of our homes? My wonderful Meryl Streep will be up for best actress in a leading role. She's had a wonderful year what with Julie and Julia, Mama Mia, and lastly... It's Complicated with that rascal Alec Baldwin. Who ever said that the older woman can get no roles in Hollywood? Here's to the "old gal." If you happen to watch the red carpet...Joe and I will be the ones in the flannel sleep pants. :)
