True, but this movie is a feel good one, so no worries there :)
I have not seen many movies recently (been watching a handful of series). One movie that I have seen in the last few months was "A Street Cat Named Bob" (2016).
This was a really touching movie that is based on a real stray cat who changed the life of a street musician who was battling drug addiction. I think it really captures the amazing connections that are possible with animals, and how some of our furry companions help and support us more than we know. While it addresses some serious topics, it is a real feel good movie and was the perfect movie to watch after the recent passing of our beloved old dog Bobby. I definitely recommend watching it.
Here is the trailer, but I believe that trailers these days give too much of the movie away, so if you like what you see, don't watch the whole trailer and just watch the movie!
Oh cool! I have not watched very many spaghetti westerns, but I really enjoyed the trailer! So dramatic. And the snowy mountain scenery was stunning. I love older movies as they provide a window in time. Might check it out someday.
After thoroughly indulging this past holiday season, I find myself already day dreaming about the goodies to come next year!
My partner's mum always makes the most delicious food, especially for the holidays. Over the past couple of years, I have had the honour of rolling up my sleeves and helping her out in the kitchen. It's been great learning new recipes and sharing one or two of my own with her.
She makes and bakes her heart out including some amazing shortbread cookies (simple yet delicious), pan forte, many different types of cakes, slices, and these amazing cookies that are a combination of a fancy gingerbread like dough that also have jam thumbprints in them and even have dark chocolate on one side (cannot remember the name at the moment).
Then for the savoury side of things, her turkeys (yes plural, she has a family of 19 to feed when everyone is home for the holidays) are perfection, gravy and bread sauce divine, orange, ginger sweet potato dish to die for, honey steamed carrots, green salad, and my personal favourite, her homemade stuffing.
I got to make the stuffing with her this year, and I am so grateful! My favourite part is that it is full of herbs that we were able to pick right out of our garden. It has huge handfuls of thyme, marjoram and parsley, mixed with shredded carrots, shredded parsnips, diced onion, eggs and of course some bread. She learned this recipe from her mother, who learnt it from her mother, and it's really lovely that she is passing on the tradition to me.
So I am wondering, what are some of your favourite holiday foods? They can be homemade, or store bought, but I want to know what really makes you think of the holidays and brings a smile to your heart and belly 😋
Our new fur baby! His name is George :)
What a beautiful day for a hike!
My green manure really took off with all the rain! We finally got some organic compost yesterday so we could prep the beds for planting.
I pushed over the green manure
covered it with hay
added the compost
and then topped with more hay to protect it!
Once the rain passes in a couple of days I can plant my seeds and seedlings! Excited to see what this new garden will offer!
Yes is sure does! 💚
Ooh that does sound really yummy with the orange and apple juice!
And thanks for the tip with the honey :) Will do that next time!
