We went to see the movie "Waitress" over the weekend. A sweet movie with lots of creative pies as part of the story. I was so inspired afterwards that I made a dynamite cobbler using Asian pears, cranberries, raspberries, a few blackberries and some strawberries. Cooking unleashes creative juices -- I enjoyed the process and the end result. The movie was more than just a comedy and stirred up ugly memories of my previous marriage from hell. Sad that it reminded me too many women feel trapped in controlling relationships. It had a happy ending, though, and I left with a smile.
We're going to Seattle this week for my nephew's graduation and I've been looking for a good book to take for the plane ride. Yesterday I saw that Oprah, bless her heart, has selected "Middlesex" as her book du jour. This is a book I've had for some time now but haven't read, so once again, Oprah to the rescue. If Oprah loves it, I'm sure I will too.
ADDENDUM: I ended up not reading Middlesex, but read Kite Runner instead. Very powerful book. Highly recommend it.
