Weekend Wrap Up

The weekend is winding down.  We watched Diamonds are Forever yesterday, and are halfway through The Man with the Golden Gun.  Bond films are so messed up.  I enjoyed yesterday's movie thoroughly, and so far this one is decent if ridiculous.  When I was 11 years old (around 1996), I rode in an elevator with Roger Moore at the Ritz Carlton in Boston.  My niece was with me and, as most 2-year-olds do, was throwing an enormous and embarrassing tantrum.  We'll probably end up seeing the new Bond movie at some point.    

Dinner tonight was Hale and Hearty.  I got my usual chopped salad (romaine, chicken, cucumbers, carrots, croutons, Parmesan, and hale and hearty vinaigrette).  They currently have a Chef Series going on, and the current chef is David Burke; so I tried his "crazy corn soup," which is described as a "creamy, lush, soup [that blends] farm fresh corn with Monterey Jack cheese and Yukon gold potatoes then [adds] in even more corn!"  It was pretty good. 

We are now on a Starbucks pumpkin scone kick.  In a  little bit, I'm going to have half of one (my husband and I split one) with a nespresso.  Also in my future tonight is the Real House Wives of Atlanta.
Hale and Hearty Salad, Crazy Corn Soup, and sourdough bread.
