Season 2 of Dead Like Me is coming back July 25. Wooo hooo!!! The hubby and I are pysched. The show is sooooooooo well written.

Last night I made an Enchilada pie for dinner. Holy cow it was delicious! I used ground turkey instead of beef and I used green chili sauce. It gave it a pow. I also put cheese in the mixture instead of just under the crust. I think the mixture would also make tasty meatloaf, and burgers too.

Niel and I rented Mooseport last night. I really was looking forward to viewing it. Within the first ten minutes I thought I was going to like the movie. It reminded me sort of What About Bob. A movie full of quirky folk. The film is essentially about some poor schmuck played by Ray Ramano, who ends up in a love triangle while accidentally running for Mayor against a former President played by Gene Hackman(Gene what are you doing in this film?). I ended up hating the film. The characters were so one dimensional. I usually find Ray Ramano's self depreciating humor funny, but not this part. I feel he just got typecast with his Everyone Loves Raymond character. Like the makers of this film thought if they gave him a new name, and set him in small town America that the viewer would be tricked. Hah! Moira Tierny's part was so whiny and just annoyed me. For Pete's sake why not ask the guy yourself if he wants to marry you instead of playing those goofy games!!!! I found the abundance of animals in this film more interesting. Anyway please don't rent this Mooseport.

I finished reading a Tree Grows in Brooklyn and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The book is very moving as it progresses through Francie's life. Betty Smith was so honest in her writing whether it dealt with joy or sadness. I would very much recommend it.

My friend Maria sent me a link to a site about urban legends and I thought I would share.

I have never seen it but heard it is good also.

I was wondering about that movie, Mooseport. I like
Ray Ramano on Everybody loves Raymond but it would seem to me, just like you said that he will always be 'Raymond' in everything that he may do (which really stinks for him)

Yep!

All your blogs about cooking have been making me feel guilty for not trying to be more of a chef at home! I am going to definitely try some of your recipes... hope I don't burn down the kitchen!

Don't feel bad. Cooking is sort of like a hobby for me. I enjoy finding new recipes. I am sure all the bloggers cook very well too. If it makes you feel any better I ordered Chinese take out last night.

That enchilada pie thing looks SOOO good. I might have to make it despite the calorie/fat content ... hehe. Screw health! Ground beef, cheese .. oooh yum.

Glad you posted about Mooseport. I was sort of tempted to see it (mostly because of Maura Tierney), but it didn't get very good reviews and I dunno ... I'm sorta over Ray Romano. I think his show jumped the shark a while back. How many times can you have mother-in-law-from-hell stories?

I used ground turkey instead of the beef. If that will help any? Yeah Ray is so over.
