          I haven't seen the movie...but the book cries for that dinner!

          1. re: TwoDogsDad

            Chocolate pie has always been my very favorite but I haven't had it since reading the book a few months ago. I am afraid that it may be a while before I can eat it with the same pleasure I used to!

              LOL - I am with you. I'll bring the peach cobbler.....

                I will never be able to think of chocolate pie, in the same way, again. As a dessert, it will probably go out of fashion for a decade or two...!

            2. Drinks- A vintage champagne.

              Dinner - Venison Medallions with Red Wine Plum Sauce
              and Red Cabbage & Spätzle

              Movie- The Blue Max

               
              1. Mrs CHM and I just did this last night.

                Bad Mexican Restaurant
                Really bad beef nachos and not so great margaritas
                Cowboys and Aliens

                But a good time out.
