Bruce Gets It

Bruce Willis and President Bush

I read this in the news today. "Angered by negative portrayals of the conflict in Iraq, Bruce Willis, the Hollywood star, is to make a pro-war film in which American soldiers will be depicted as brave fighters for freedom and democracy." I'm so glad to hear this and will eagerly await the movie. I loved Tears of the Sun. We need champions when we have so many working so feverishly against us. Bruce Willis also said, "I am baffled to understand why the (good) things I saw happening in Iraq are not being reported." Yay for Bruce. I often wonder what it would be like if our media reported all of our successes instead of trumpeting the bad and many times manufacturing it. It is no wonder foreign countries hate our president. I think they must think that we do too. But he knows that we love him. in love

Flaky Onion Biscuits

I tried a recipe over the weekend, and I liked it! I've been looking for a simple good biscuit to make up quick to have with soup. They have cream cheese and green onions in them, so if that sounds good to you, try this recipe from the Gooseberry Patch cookbook, Made From Scratch.

Flaky Onion Biscuits

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 – oz. package cream cheese
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup green onion, finely chopped
2/3 cup milk

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in medium bowl; cut in cream cheese and shortening until mixture resembles course crumbs. Stir in green onions. Make a well in center of flour mixture; add milk, stirring only until dough begins to stick and forms a ball. Turn dough onto well-floured surface. Knead dough gently 10 to 15 times. Roll or pat dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out dough with 3-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 8 servings.

Movie Review – The Interpreter

imageI watched a movie tonight while Jack caught up on his sleep...he he. I really liked it. The Interpreter, a United Nations thriller with Sean Penn and Nicole Kidman directed by Sidney Pollack. I always love when he does a cameo in his own movies, very good actor himself. I thought Sean Penn and Nicole Kidman were very very good in this movie. Very believable, as if they WERE who they were playing...I always like that. They had perfect chemistry.
