Weekend update

November 10, 2008 - Kathie Evanoff
It might have been cold outside, but it was warm inside and the weekend was relaxing.

I’m going to start posting a weekend update on meals very soon, but this weekend I didn’t carry my camera around, so there aren’t photos. I pretty much stick to the usual weekday routine for my meals except for one slight difference on Saturday afternoon.

The husband and I went to see The Secret Life of Bees at the theater and we split a small popcorn and bottle of water. It cost nearly as much for the popcorn and water than it did to get into the matinee, so we don’t usually indulge when we go. Queen Latifah was very good in her part, although I thought she was young for the woman she was portraying. All the other characters were good as well, but I’ll leave the review for our entertainment reporter.

As far as I am concerned, the movie was very good and now I have to read the book. I’ve had the book on my shelf at home for probably a year and still haven’t opened the first page, so when I went to see the movie, I had no idea what it was about or even who was in it.

It was an excellent movie and according to a friend who also saw it over the weekend and did read the book, it kept pretty close to the plot with only a few things left out.

But before I pick up that book, I have to read a couple I picked up at the local library by historical writer Doris Kearns Goodwin. One is about the Lincoln and his rivals in the 1860 presidential race and the other is about FDR, both important presidents with interesting lives.

I wasn’t ready to give up my warm house this morning to venture out in the cold. I swear as I was pulling out of the driveway, there were snow flurries flying all around.

Before I left the house; however, I began my day with my usual cup of hot tea and a bowl of cold cereal with sliced banana. When I shop for bananas, I try to find the smallest that I can, usually not more than seven inches long. This way I can use a whole banana on my morning cereal and don’t have to cut one of the larger ones in half.

For lunch, I heated a package of Amy’s rice mac and cheese in my little microwave at my office along with a half cup of peas and a small, two-ounce can of water packed tuna. I think roasted chicken is on the menu for dinner.
