Dinner And A Movie Friday

Opening day everyone has been waiting for the much anticipated, Angels & Demons that is what we thought last Friday when we went to see it. I am sure if you have read the book you will enjoy it more. We had not read the book but we still enjoyed it I was so surprised to see the corruption and destruction in the Catholic Church. The story is based in the Vatican where they are trying to appoint a new Pope after the Pope died suddenly. Tom Hanks plays the lead he is back to try and help with all the signs of history. Ewan Mc Gregor plays the fallen Pope's adopted son. The story and scenery were great. I have a problem when shows begin to drag, a little dragging in a few areas just trying to make it over two hours. Everyone who had read the movie really enjoyed the movie.


A couple of years ago I found this salad while I was looking for something fun to serve at my daughter's baby shower. It was a hit and has continued to be a big hit. Prior to the shower I made the salad and took it to work it was devoured in minutes. Then I figured it was good enough to serve at the shower. Plan on everyone asking for the recipe it is real easy can be made in moments. I prefer to let it sit for hours or even over night so the flavors can marry. Tastes almost like one of those fancy caramel apples. It is so rich that I always use lite cool whip. Perfect for a Memorial Day picnic as long as you can keep it cold. You can even serve it as dessert. It could even be made at the park. You will get lots of laughs and giggles over this one.

Snickers Salad

3 large snickers bars
3 granny smith apples
1 large lite cool whip

Cut up the candy bars into bite size pieces.( I found using the kitchen shears was the quickest and your hands don't get messy). Core the apple and cut up into bite size pieces. Mix together with cool whip. Chill and serve.

I'll bet this is tasty. Do you serve this as a dip, spread or salad - or all three?
