Yesterday was just gorgeous . . . and I say that about a pretty gray, cold and windy day because the clouds were cascading over the mountains and just rolling down into the valley and up again! It reminded me of scenes of the mountains in the movie "Return to Snowy River."
When I was in first or second grade my bf and I would watch it whenever we had a sleepover and then talk about how dreamy Jim Craig was at school! Oh . . . remember the great music in that movie . . my sisters and I love to play it on the piano! Or how he jumped on his horse and took off after those mangy horse thieves and returned to the woman he loves on the mountain to live happily ever after! Oooooo!
Okay talking about movies . . . I caught part of Anna Karenina tonight on the tube, the old black and white one with Vivian Leigh . . . very dramatic ending! I love old movies! One of my fav's is the 1941 b&w "Jane Eyre" with Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine! I never tire of watching it! I can hear him calling out . . . Jane, Jane and her doe eyes always looking around. Okay moving on . . . This has just become chili week in our home! Another favorite chili recipe was shared with me by friends from Cincinnati. I really like it . . . you serve chili over spaghetti noodles topped with onions, cheese, sour cream etc. I added a little perk on top with shaved chili chocolate. It was oh soooo good! I have had chili with chocolate in it before but it wasn't my favorite, but the chili dark chocolate shavings on top were awesome! Talk about venture out! My hubby wasn't too keen on trying it but liked it in the end!
