Some dishes just need to be made at home. And chicken Kiev is one of them. To make my chicken Kiev I first made this garlic parsley butter.
Before December last year I cannot tell you when Dave and I last went to see a movie. I remember going to see 911 which was really bad. And Dave thinks we took the boys to see a Star Wars movie. But for the past decade at least we have been watching them at home. Dave is involved indirectly in the production side of things, and we have watched some on DVD. But mostly we choose a movie to watch that is on our catch up service. This allows us a lot of freedom. If we don’t like what we have chosen we can stop watching. And we have lost nothing but time. We can hit the pause button whenever we want to. And most importantly, the drinks and popcorn are cheap! In December last year we went to see Bohemian Rhapsody.
Mark had been to see it in the UK and sent a message to his Dad how good it was. And then James spoke about going to see the movie. So we took James and Carli for an evening out. We went for burgers beforehand and then went to see the show. And it was excellent. I think that Queen is one of those rock bands that ages well. The theatre was full with people of all generations. And everyone loved it. I thought it was so good that I am going to watch it again when it becomes available on our PVR. However, I still prefer watching movies at home. Going to the movies is an expensive evening out, and I would rather spend the money on a good meal. Are movies expensive to go to where you live?
