Movie Night – Due Date

Saturday night was movie night in my household.  The flick of the night was Due Date staring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis.

I didn’t have any expectations for this movie.  Actually I did, I thought this was going to be one of those movies that showed all the funny parts in the previews.  I was wrong.  I actually laughed out loud more than a few times.  Probably helps that I really like Robert Downey Jr 😉

I would recommend this movie if you are looking for something that doesn’t require any thinking at all.  😀

Breakfast & Lunch

These 2 meals kind of ran together Saturday morning and afternoon.  Waking up late will do that to you.

Amy’s alphabet soup:

Baked beans with mustard:

I know some people will find this an odd combination but I think it compliments each-other rather nicely 🙂  I should let you know that I love mustard on pretty much everything!


My brother-in-law came over to watch the movie with us and he also treated us to a pretty good dinner from Bella Bacinos.

I started off with a Bacino’s House Salad which includes mixed field greens, cucumbers, carrots and shaved fennel tossed with torn basil balsamic vinaigrette:

The salad was good and all the veggies were really fresh.  Can’t ask for more than that when it comes to a salad.

Next course was the beautiful Filet Crostini which is sliced medium rare beef tenderloin on garlic-rubbed crostini, with balsamic reduction:

Delicious and almost too pretty to eat.  Seriously, this was the nicest presentation of food I have ever seen from a delivery and I’ve had lots of delivery over the last couple years 😉

My main dish was the Cappellini which is angel hair pasta, grilled chicken, whole roasted garlic, pancetta and fresh green beans:

Last but not least – the restaurant gave us complimentary chocolate chip cookies.  Perfect end to a great meal!

This entire meal was great, especially for delivery!  Thanks to my BIL for treating us to a great dinner and sharing a new (to us) restaurant to Patrick and myself 🙂


Have you seen Due Date?  What did you think of it?
