StormCnter posted on Recipes I sometimes want to put together a lazy meal, particularly on weekends. But, my husband enjoys having something good to eat. It's too early for good-looking fresh green beans (we called them snap beans in my childhood ), so I resorted to doing something with a couple of cans of them, instead. It turned out to be very tasty. Lazy Woman's Green Beans A few slices of bacon (I used four ) 2 cans green beans, drained a small handful of diced onion (about 1/3 cup ) a glob of butter (a couple of teaspoons ) about 1/2 tsp of sugar or maybe a smidge more a couple of cloves of minced garlic 2 cups of chicken broth
Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry them up Drain the bacon grease off Combine everything into a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat Cover the saucepan and simmer on low for 15 or 20 minutes until the beans are the consistency you like. Sprinkle with a little black pepper before serving.

StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews Name that movie: 1. Great big thing stays above water for a while. 2. Locally popular maiden faces adversity but bravely looks toward tomorrow. 3. Unsophisticated beauty gains polish and sings about it 4. Teenager fruitlessly rages against status quo 5. Fleeing female is fatally showered

MeiDei Must need coffee, not feeling too sure of my guesses but here goes: 1. Titanic 3. My Fair Lady By the time I typed the first sentence I lost a better guess at #5; my first thought was Runaway (Fleeing ) Bride (showered ) but tossed that for "Fatally" - maybe the better guess will return. Now to make a pot of coffee ....

MeiDei OK - is 5 Psycho? That was my better guess. Have been toying with the idea that #2 is Annie (the sun will come out tomorrow ) but not fully committed to it : )

StormCnter Yes on #1, #3, #5. You're too good, Mei. I'll have to work up some new ones. #2 is not meant to be Annie, although she does almost fit.

MeiDei Good clues Storm, good clues ... I tossed out Cinderella (not locally popular ) and Miss Congeniality for Annie. Leaving #2 & #4 for those who are far better movie goers than I am.

StormCnter 22 hours is plenty long enough for a quiz to be unanswered. #2 is Scarlett O'Hara, #4 is "Rebel Without a Cause".
MeiDei Good morning to you and all who visit here. The sun came out this morning after a long darkly grey & drizzly yesterday! I'm so very grateful we didn't lose power the other day during the blizzard (we got 20" ) but did lose it last night (for approx. 1-1/2 hours ) while we were sleeping; wouldn't know that we had but for the clock on the stove blinking.
