Yesterday afternoon, I tried to get on my way to seeing what Entertainment Weekly says are the 25 movies to see before the Oscars. Here's the list and my thoughts...
1- The Descendants (seen it)
2- War Horse (won't see until on Apple TV because I'm afraid tears will be plentiful)
3- The Help (seen it. own it)
4- Hugo (really no desire to go see it)
5- Midnight in Paris (seen it)
6- Moneyball (seen it)
7-The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (will see it if I can ever get to the dang movies)

9- Beginners (want to see it)
10- Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows (never seen nor read anything Potter)
11- The Iron Lady (want to see it)
12- Rango (no thank ya)
13- Shame (maybe)
14- Albert Nobbs (Glen Close creeps me out as Nobbs, but maybe I'll see it)
15- The Ides of March (seen it)
16- Kung Fu Panda 2 (haven't seen 1, won't see 2)
17- Bridesmaids (seen it)

23-Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (not high on list)
24- My Week with Marilyn (want to see. probably on Apple TV)
25- The Artist (I'm on the fence)
My friend Billy came over for a late lunch. I grilled some filets and made bake potatoes. I also made a Cream Corn with Green Chilies, because corn is one of like 2 veggies that Billy will eat. It was really good. I found some fresh corn at Whole Foods, so I shucked it on Saturday afternoon...
Then I cooked it up yesterday...
It is super yummy. Here's the recipe if you are in the mood for some yumminess...
1/3 cup white wine (I used an extra splash)
