(Because when you think of the one, you automatically think of the other, right?) Finally got around to watching "Dark Knight." Um, ick. Christian Bale - not as hot as cartoon Batman. Weak chin, kind of pasty, and, oh, God - that voice. Bruce Wayne voice was sort of okay, but when he was in the costume, I kept expecting him to grunt, "Ummm, french-fried potatoes" in the Billy Bob Thornton voice from "Slingblade."
Mardi Gras was fun, bread pudding recipe was DIVINE, and everyone really liked my Cajun pecans, which I served as-is and also chopped up and sprinkled over a Brie that was baked with pear preserves and brown sugar. Cathy, this recipe shout-out is specifically for you: Melt 1/2 stick butter and drizzle over 1/2 pound of pecans. Sprinkle with Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning to taste. Toss to coat, spread in a single thin layer on a baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes. Store in airtight container.
Pecans also tasted great cooked up with some butter, shallots and rum and drizzled over baked white fish . . . .
