Dinner and a Movie

Gentle Friends while most of the country seems to be held in a deep freeze with blowing wind, snow and cold, the Bay area especially the City has had almost Spring like weather with the temps hovering in the mid 60's - bright and sunny...... this is our rainy season and we had no rain for the longest time and there has been lots of talk of drought.  Although the mild weather is nice it would be super to have some cold again and some rain lashing about  - since I can't control the weather I takes what I can gets!!

Last night we kept dinner simple and tasty.......

..... Rico made some really tasty BLT's with avocado, and I had some tots and Rico had fries.  I really prefer a tot over a fry, and I especially like the tot's with onion in them, but you just cannot get those out here in the Bay area, or at least I can't find them in any store I've been into.

Along with the super meal we had a really terrific film -

 "Made in Dagenham" - 2010 - starring - Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins, Miranda Richardson and Geraldine James.  Based on the true story of a group of sewing machinists at the Ford Plant in 1968 that go out on strike for equal pay.  It is a wonderful film on so many levels, the acting is top notch, the story is really good (and is about the strike which was successful , that led to the Equal Pay act of1970).  I recommend this film highly - you'll not be disappointed!!

There you go sports fans - thanks again for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,


  1. That BLT looks yummy! I haven't heard of the movie, but will have to see if I can find it to watch - I need something new and different to watch.

  2. Thanks for the movie review...I just added it to my Netflix queue :)

  3. A great film and a nice looking dinner too.

  4. That sandwich looks yummy! I have seen the word drought more and more lately, I guess we Californians can look for higher water bills. I won't get on my soap box about that though. LOL Happy New Year to you and Rico!

  5. Mmmmm, that BLT looks Yummmmo! Next time I will try adding the avocado. Have a great day!

  6. Oh, that BLAT looks tasty. So often I leave your blog hungry!

  7. Your dinner looks delicious! I'm totally envious of your temps too. Sigh. I'm sitting here shivering right now. Have to look up that movie. You are a font of knowledge about movies!

  8. looks like a perfect night in :)

  9. I love me some tater tots!! I agree- tots over fries just about any day. I haven't heard of that movie- sounds good- will have to check it out.
