Late Night Movie

If I haven't mentioned it before, I'm saying it now. I'm a BIG fan of the movie, Iron Man. Robert Downey Jr., hel-lo!!! So, with The Avengers having come out just this last weekend, it went without saying that I we just had to see the movie. Movie theatre for us, these days, is an on-and-off affair. For this movie, it was obviously on the on side.

By the end of last week, hubs and I couldn't decide if we should watch it on Saturday or Sunday night. Saturday night became out of the question when it occurred to me that I was still in my jammies by early afternoon *embarrassed grin*. And since the plan for the whole evening, which included dinner, kinda' hinged on us watching the movie, which we ended up not doing, kinda' had to scramble around to make dinner. Thank god for Boursin! Hah!

This was inspired by this recipe I came across online.


Sunday then came. Didn't tell hubs but I came pretty close to changing my mind about the movie. (What is wrong with me, I'm getting lazy even for fun stuff *sigh*). And of course, ever the procrastinator, didn't set out on buying the movie tix until the early afternoon.

Why? Because thought I'd dilly-dally around town first, seeing that it was such a beautiful day.

Although did kinda' pay a price for that dilly-dallying. Serves me right for waiting last minute! We wanted to try the new Ultra 3D in the theatre, which I later learned has reserved seating, which I found out had barely any seats left for the screening time we want. And that's how we ended up with the 11 PM screening.

With what we paid for the ticket, darn right the seating should be reserved. And darn right those new seats lean back and are comfy.

The movie itself? Worth every penny!!! Totally satisfied the 8-year old boy in me, HAH!

(This morning, however, after managing to only get 4 hours of sleep, was a totally different story, but that's neither here nor there.)

Anyhoot, since our movie was on the tad late side, one good thing that came out of that was I had time to make dinner.

Hubs is a big fan of stuffed peppers, which I guess takes him back to his childhood. And I am not, unfortunately. So when I found this recipe from one of my regular reads, I knew I've found a happy medium.

I suppose I really should say that what I made was inspired by that dish. Had to tweak it a bit since I don't have the exact ingredients hehe. Regardless, it was another yummm!!!

I think imma go to bed now... O wait, dinner first. HAH!
