The movie: True Grit

Oh boy...The Coen Brothers
really out did themselves with this one.
It was fantastic!

Great food, yummy drinks, and an awesome movie...
it doesn't get much better than this!
This one was super special
because we were celebrating the fact
that Roger got a big fat bonus from work.

Woo hoo!

Nice menu. I don't know if True Grit is as romantic as the food you prepared, but I do love me some Coen Brothers movies.

Katherine said...

We watched True Grit the other night. We loved it too. Our food wasn't nearly as good. Oreos and milk.

Sue said...

What could be better??

i meant to post today but sadly, i haven't been able to post anything. oliver has been a wild man. boys are a whole different story--i never knew! he actually crawled INTO the dishwasher today while i was unloading it! :)

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

p.s. he is totally fine, by the way. it was just wild that he 1. figured out how to get in and 2. did it so fast!

That all looks delish! I may have to try the bees knees drink. ;)

Leigh Erin said...

OMG Leigh, I'm not kidding when I say I tried the Bees nees for the first time on Friday when I was out and then we watched True Grit when we got home. So weird! :) lol
