A few of this week’s favorite things
– Blackberry Sangria from Carrabba’s. until this week, I was not a huge fan of Carrabba’s. I always managed to order the wrong thing. All of that changed the minute I ordered their Blackberry Sangria. Wowza! is that stuff good. Smooth, sweet, and mysteriously complex. I’ve heard there’s a recipe for it online…I’ll let you know if it can be duplicated.
– The Artist. I had been wanting to see this movie for weeks, but since it won Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Picture at the Oscar’s (not that I typically put much importance on these awards shows) I absolutely HAD to see it. Needless to say, my high expectations were actually exceeded (a rare feat indeed). Romantic, tragic, heartwarming, and unexpectedly brilliant. Love.love.love.
– Nutella Sandwich Cookies. I picked up the giant two pack of Nutella from Costco last week, and I don’t think there need be any explanation as to why. Since then I have been searching for the perfect cookie to feature this delicious spread, and I think I may have struck gold. Here’s the link to the recipe: Nutella Sandwich Cookies
