Gatsby & Menu Plan

Have you seen the preview for the new Great Gatsby movie? The book is in my top five favorite books of all time and the movie with Robert Redford is one of my top five favorite movies. So I'm not impressed so far with this preview. I don't see the point in messing with perfection. It has a lot more glitz and glamour than the book evokes. And I am not really impressed with DiCaprio anymore. His facial expressions don't change no matter what emotion he is trying to evoke. It always looks like he's trying to poop. The only good thing I can say is that the movie will hopefully inspire more people to read the book. I'll probably wait until this comes out on DVD and then rent or netflix it, but we'll see. My curiosity and book nerdery might get the best of me. Check it out.

Here's what we are going to eat this week.

Monday - Hummus, tabouleh, falafel
Tuesday - Black bean and quinoa salad
Wednesday - Pot roast
Thursday - Leftover pot roast
Friday - Baked chicken
Saturday - Some sort of bbq because Craig got a new fancy grill
Sunday - Not sure yet. Pin It

  1. 1- How dare you make disparaging remarks about Leo (LEO!).

    2- Will not be barbeque. It will be something grilled. BBQ implies smoke and long, slow cooking. Also, usually something porky (Unless you prefer texas style bbq, which I don't, really).
