Ice Storm Thoughts

Not sure if you heard or were affected by the winter storm late last week, but down here in Texas we got a few inches of ice and were stuck inside for a few days. After a couple days I was able to get out of the house and fresh veggies were scarce in the grocery store. I decided I really wanted to make some homemade soup, I love celery and carrots that and chicken stock is really all you need for a soup foundation. You could just let your imagination and taste buds run free!

the possibilities are endless




Anyway like I said veggies were scarce and they only had shredded carrots left, which I normally never buy, but there thin shape got me thinking about all the delicious possibilities.

I was also watching a lot of TV and the actors are doing the talk show rounds for their upcoming movies. I'm really excited about "Inside Llewyn Davis". Coen Brothers Film check. Great actors check. Amazing soundtrack performed by said actors with music by T Bone Burnett check. Rambling side note T Bone Burnett also did the music for Walk the Line another music movie I love! Remember how great Joaquin and Reese's performance were? Yeah, that's another reason I'm really excited. I love a movie plot line surrounded by great music. And the fact that Oscar Isaac the guy that plays Llewyn Davis, kinda looks like Nick from New Girl ;)

   Anyway... I'm also excited about the Secret Life of Walter Mitty with Ben Stiller and Kristen Wiig, kinda getting a fanciful Eternal Sunshine vibe... yay :)   What upcoming movies are you excited about? Happy Friday to you!

That homemade soup sounds delicious! I'm glad you were able to eventually leave the house! Snow/Ice days are fun, but not if there are too many of them. :)

Yes we had a storm first snow then a ton of rain that washed it all away. My friend came up with a good name for the rush of people before a storm...storm hoarders.

OMG! I had no idea that Llewyn was the same actor that plays nick! Crazy!! I'm so excited to see the movie too, I've been listening to the songs on repeat on Spotify!

Ok, embarrassing--this is what I get when I don't read clearly. Now I see that you were just saying the two actors look alike. Whoops!
